An Eye on Every Detail: Service at Coperion
Customer relies on modernization – and gains a competitive advantage.
Always motivated on the job: Our service experts were faced with the task of bringing a ZSK 177 twin screw extruder made in 1996 up to the state of the art. The aim of this modernization: to considerably improve the quality of the product manufactured with the extruder and to gain a competitive advantage for our customer as a result.
No problem for the Coperion Modernization Team and our local representative on site. Following intensive examination and assessment of the actual condition of the machine the experts drew up a detailed project plan: from the design and production of the necessary new components, the machining of the existing components, and the conversion of the extruder on site right up to recommissioning.
Coperion implemented this plan step by step. The screw shafts with coupling and accessories were changed as were two barrels of the processing section. These were re-designed and manufactured at Coperion especially for the project. Other existing barrels were shipped to Coperion “just-in-time” for their modification. This gave our customer a great advantage, namely minimum machine downtime.
The customer was delighted with our modernization package. In addition to the improved product quality he also benefits from the maximum productivity and operational reliability of his extruder.

New filters and cleaning systems – extended delivery program from Coperion.
Every filter is different – but always just as the customer needs. This is the motto under which we present our new filter program which meets the customers’ demand for greater cost effectiveness.
The filters of the FD series have a dual function: They can filter and separate simultaneously. Thanks to their integrated water trap they have separation factors of 99.97 % and can be used as safety filters to protect machines and products.
The Jet Cleaning System is the optimum solution for filters which need to be cleaned regularly: dimensions, quality and arrangement of the cleaning nozzles are adapted exactly to the intensity and frequency of the cleaning air shots. The result: maximum cleaning, low compressed air consumption, long useful life of the filter elements and a drastic reduction in filter costs and running costs.
