Laboratory extruders are small scale versions of production extruders with a variety of important uses:
Diamond America Table Top Extruders are a valuable research and development tool for performing operations that are to be eventually scaled up for production. Aside from preventing the diversion of valuable production resources, there are substantial material cost savings to be made by running small batches.
The key to using scaled operation is the flexibility of the laboratory extruder. A versatile Diamond America table top extruder provides the opportunity to test and alter processes in order to achieve the best results, prior to scaling.
The other factor for successful scaling is ensuring that the material has the exact same experience in the production equipment as in laboratory extrusion lines. Diamond America Table Top Extruders are fully customizable and can be fitted with specialized process control instrumentation to constantly measure and record parameters for exact reproduction.
Compact and versatile, yet stable and precise, Diamond America’s table top extruders make ideal laboratory extruders, always proving to be a very profitable investment.
