A company that manufactures coatings for the aeronautical industry looked to Diamond America recently to develop a catalyst extrusion process to replace the plastic extruders they were currently using. The plastic extruders were unable to sustain a consistent feed of a resin material that is solid when fed into the extruder.
Diamond America designed an extrusion process exclusively for feeding the challenging material using their twin feed technology. This technology includes high tolerance counter-rotating feeders that enable the difficult material to be fed consistently to the auger – changing the resin from a solid to a molten form. Thus producing a more uniform product.
