New Industrial Extrusion Innovation Centre opens

New Industrial Extrusion Innovation Centre opens

Baker Perkins’ new Industrial Extrusion Innovation Centre is now open, offering a dedicated resource for chemical, plastics, pharmaceutical, packaging and construction materials trials, alongside full powder coating production facilities and research and development services for a whole range of Industrial Extrusion applications.

It is available for customers looking to develop new products and processes, produce samples, or conduct feasibility trials. The Centre is particularly relevant for companies exploring a change from batch to continuous processing.

Located at Peterborough in the UK, the Innovation Centre offers use of a MPX24 Integra twin-screw extruder with feeder, chill roll and flaking unit. There are also grinding, curing and spraying facilities available, plus a full set of analytical instruments to check consistency and quality for characteristics including thickness, gloss and imperfections.

The hot-melt extrusion process available through the MPX24 Integra is appropriate for any application that involves mixing and thermal processing of a wide range of granules, pellets and powders. Liquids, low-density materials and low-volume additives can all be injected into the mix.

This new Innovation Centre underlines Baker Perkins’ capability as a full service organisation committed to providing complete process support. Customers from around the world can work with their own raw materials and are guaranteed complete confidentiality, working alongside Baker Perkins’ technologists to supply data to enable smooth, uncomplicated commissioning of new equipment or development of new products.
