Coperion Creates New Compact Twin Screw Extruder to Simplify Handling
Six years after the initial launch of this twin screw extruder series, the ZSK Mc18 has undergone a range of improvements designed to further simplify handling. A compact version offers many advantages. It can be swiftly put into operation – meaning a quick start to production and no costly start-up times. It has a lower height and a more clearly arranged control cabinet design. There is improved accessibility of its process section -- the cable ducts are arranged under the process section, and the control cabinets are located at motor and gearbox height. The separately mounted drive cabinet results in a reduction in installation space as well as in the weight of the machine. The machine and the control system can be quickly and easily connected using a small number of clearly identified cable connections. All of these benefits result in a quicker return on investment than with conventional machines.
