An ICMA's Lab extruder is a small extruder able to produce, in small batches, products, and compounds by mirroring what a bigger industrial extruder can do.
Brief description and technical features:
→ ICMA's Lab systems are perfectly equipped for use as development units with the same process engineering features & equipment applied to production scale extrusion lines in order to ensure reliable and safe scale-up. It is extremely user-friendly also of its compact dimension
→ Modular screws of the co-rotating extruder with several geometries and different barrel designs are combined with a wide range of ancillary equipment to deliver maximum flexibility
Who should buy:
→ Companies aiming at studying new processes or/and upgrading existing formulations before going to real production. Also good for small production batches.
The advantages you can achieve by having such a system are:
→ Minimize operational risks of new formulation before going into production
→ Minimize time to market and “payback” period of new developments
→ Minimize risks related to “information protection” issues compared to external development
→ By decreasing the risks/costs above detected “returns” of new developments are maximized
