Fakuma 2017: The Masterbatch XXperience

The world of plastics will meet up again in Friedrichshafen at the Fakuma from October 17 - 21, 2017. The Leistritz Extrusion Technology team will of course also be there in hall A6/booth 6302 presenting its range of products.

This time the focus will be set on the ZSE 35 iMAXX, a twin screw extruder that is especially suited for the use in masterbatch production. In this field of application, efficient product changes are as important as attaining very good quality and high throughputs. Therefore, the machine was designed to be quite flexible. It has closed, and thus easy-to-clean surfaces. A stainless steel cover protects the entire processing unit and drive unit against accidental contact or contamination. The cooling/heating device is fully integraed in the frame. One central water connection is all that is needed for the entire machine. The temperature control, heating and cooling elements are very well positioned. Since they are easy to access they can easily be exchanged or cleaned.

A further feature is the adaptable frame length. The standard frame length is designed for process lengths of at least 24 L/D up to maximum of 48 L/D. With a change of formulation, the processing unit can thus be extrended or shortened. Futhermore, a synchronous drive is used in this extruder. This way, Leistritz contributes to an improved energy efficiency. Also a torque measurement is installed.

You can see the ZSE 35 iMAXX live at the Leistritz booth 6302 in hall A6! We are looking forward to seeing you there!
