Coperion Werner & Pfleiderer GmbH & Co. KG of Stuttgart, Germany, developed a laboratory extruder with a screw diameter of only 18 millimeters.
The ZSK 18 Megalab is designed for developing formulations of compounds, masterbatches and powder coatings at factories, and for carrying out basic tests and research in universities and research facilities.
Megalab may be small, but it has the same torque and high speed as the rest of Coperion's line of ZSK Megacompounder extruders.
The company's U.S. operation, Coperion Corp., is in Ramsey, N.J.
