Laboratory twin-screw extruders RES-2PN 2x16 mm enable testing of materials before production and conducting research on new polymeric materials. The plastics market always wants more new technologies. The plastics market is now demanding more and more complex, faster, smarter and better quality solutions in extrusion plants. This involves optimizing equipment, materials, processes and technologies. Innovation is key in plastic extrusion technology. The evolution of basic materials, composites and polymer blends and reactive extrusion is becoming a challenge in the field of plastic extrusion research. For this reason, manufacturers of laboratory extruders and associated equipment adapt to new and diverse materials and polymer composites. Customers are looking for ease of use and flexibility in polymer processing. Government safety and environmental regulations are a constant challenge for the plastics and polymers industry. Customers are looking for laboratory extruders that can effectively and reliably simulate production equipment in the process of testing plastics and polymers. Laboratories use extruders to develop new compounds, composites or to ensure the quality of their own extrusion systems. Zamak Mercator laboratory extruders for plastics provide scientists with a high ability to reproduce and design industrial processes in the conditions of a research laboratory. Due to the high complexity of the extrusion process, the research extruder should have all the capabilities of industrial extruders and even surpass them in terms of technical parameters and functionality.

Technical description

RES-2PN 2x16 mm Zamak Mercator research extruders provide scientists with a high ability to map and design industrial processes in a research laboratory. Due to the high complexity of the extrusion process, a research extruder should have all the capabilities of industrial extruders and even exceed them in terms of equipment and functionality with versatile adaptability to almost any processing task and easy system operation, they distinguish laboratory extruders as an excellent research instrument.

The construction of modular and non-modular extruders is based on innovative design assumptions, modern components and is based on many years of experience gained in the plastics processing industry.

Zamak Mercator is a manufacturer of laboratory twin-screw extruders with screw diameters: 2 x 12 mm and 2 x 16 mm.
Twin-screw research extruders designed for larger tasks [applications] with screw diameters: 2 x 20 mm and 2 x 24 mm.

Our research extruders are reliable and repeatableThe preparation time for subsequent tests is shortIn the practice of a research laboratory, meeting such an assumption means that in a short time the extruder must reach and stabilize the working parameters set by the scientist Changes of the set parameters must be reliable, repeatable and fast All measurement data must be reliable.
You can get reliable scale-up, reduced time-to-market.

Our laboratory twin-screw extruders offer flexible configurations from small batches to pilot scale or low-volume production and are ideal for research and development in the polymer, pharmaceutical, biology and nanotechnology sectors. Our laboratory extruders meet a wide range of process requirements, even for the most difficult formulations.

The purpose of applying the described solutions used in twin-screw extruders is to obtain the possibility of conducting research on any thermoplastics, polymers and other materials in a large range of temperatures and screw torques. extruder for a specific task in a short time The extruder quickly responds to temperature changes by the operator.Rich additional equipment and the ability to change the configuration further expand the possibilities of conducting research.

Important functional features of laboratory twin-screw extruders.
