JSW Plastic Machinery Inc. (Booth W2173) will feature its new generation of co-rotating twin-screw extruders at NPE 2015 in Orlando, Fla. The Tex Alpha III series has new designs for the gearbox, screw shaft and barrels to boost torque by as much as 36 percent.
Seven models span barrel diameters from 26.5 to 129.5 millimeters A high precision torque limiter ensures mechanical and safety protection at high torque loads. A water-cooled motor is optional for noise reduction.
JSW compounding extruders can handle complex engineering polymers for medical, automotive, electronics, optical and other industries. The company's technical center in Japan runs more than 10 extrusion lines for research and development and soon will add an updated laboratory extruder to its lineup.
