18.02.2019 Smart feeding and extrusion technology maximise productivity in manufacture of powder coatings

Coperion, Frankfurt, Germany, and its Swiss sister company Coperion K-Tron will present their extrusion technology for manufacturing powder coatings at this year’s European Coatings Show (19-21 March 2019, Nuremburg, Germany). At its core is the Coperion ZSK twin screw extruder that, thanks to its advanced mixing characteristics and gentle product handling, ensures absolutely homogeneous distribution of coating components throughout the powder and thus highest quality powder coating production. In order to introduce raw materials with process reliability into the ZSK process, Coperion offers the side feeder ZS-B Easy whose very low cleaning times set it apart from competitive machines. Visitors can see the ZS-B Easy at Coperion’s booth (6-350, Hall 6) at ECS 2019. Moreover, a highly accurate Coperion K-Tron Quick Change Twin Screw Feeder with the intelligent ActiFlow™ bulk solid activator will be on display. This offers an innovative method to reliably prevent bridging and rat-holing of cohesive bulk materials in stainless steel hoppers without any need for internal hopper agitation.  It is optimally designed for ZSK technology, works with high accuracy, and is easy to clean. 


The ZSK 43 Mv PLUS compact twin-screw extruder from Coperion is specially designed for manufacture of powder coatings; Quick Change Feeders from Coperion K-Tron (below) offer high flexibility when changing recipes during production of powder coatings
