Twin screw extruder.
Marshall and Williams Plastics, a division of Parkinson Technologies Inc., recently added a new Leistritz twin screw extruder to
its Lab/Pilot Line Facility. This is in addition to the existing four
single screw extruders with a total capability of casting five layers.
Use of the twin screw extruder will allow customers to compound and cast
in-line at one facility. The benefit of compounding in-line versus
off-line is the production of a higher quality material with a more
controlled process at a reduced cost. With a world-class pilot plant
facility, Parkinson offers complete flexibility for plastics sheet/film
extrusion and orientation research and development. The pilot plant is
actively used by resin manufacturers and material processors to conduct
product development programs and produce marketing samples for a broad
array of materials.
