Comprehensive product range

Compounding Machines

The ZSK MEGAcompounder co-rotating twin screw extruder from Coperion is a superior product at the highest technical level for the processing of polyolefins. It combines the total results of 50 years of system and processing competence. Its modular design principle allows optimal adaptation to every process. With our many years of know-how we configure the ZSK MEGAcompounder and the system auxiliary equipment to your individual process requirements.

Process Equipment

Our unique know-how covers all process stages, from material transfer to accurate feeding of both primary resins and challenging powder additives, as well as packaging of the end product.  Coperion and Coperion K-Tron offer years of experience in the control of resin velocity and temperature to reduce product damage as well as the design and supply of specialized equipment to provide unmatched product homogeneity. We develop and manufacture key components required throughout the overall process such as single and twin screw feeders, Smart Flow Meters, weigh belt feeders, rotary valves, bag dump stations, a variety of discharge and diverter valves and much more. These components set standards at high pressures and with regard to wear protection. Their development is backed by our extensive experience in plant engineering.
