    Continuous Production of Hot Melt Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (HMPSA)

    Using Coperion's ZSK twin screw extruders to produce hot melt adhesives allows the use of a wide range of different recipe components and ensures consistently high product quality without batch-to-batch variations. The ZSK twin screw extruder in modular design and individually configured to the product group combines various process steps in one machine: plasticizing/masticating, mixing, homogenization, venting and devolatilization.

  • Coperion_semi-automatic-strand-conveying_SCP_835x470px Play video

    Semi-Automatic Strand Conveying Pelletizer SCP

    The Semi-Automatic Strand Conveying Pelletizer SCP of Coperion Pelletizing Technology ensures the automatic transfer of strands from the extruder die head to the pelletizer. The SCP automatically guides the extruded strands via a cooling water chute and downstream conveyor belt into the feed mechanism of the pelletizer. The semi-automatic start-up mechanism facilitates the start-up operation, while any possible machine malfunctions caused by broken strands are avoided by the system's ability to rethread the strands.

  • Coperion_ZS-B_easy_1025x577px Play video

    Coperion side-feeder ZS-B for quick clean down times

    Coperion has completely overhauled its ZS-B side feeder unit. The new ZS-B easy permits much faster dismantling from the ZSK extruder process section and the twin screws can be changed very simple. Time for cleaning e.g. for recipe changes decreases obviously.

  • Coperion_FET_1025x557px Play video

    Coperion Feed Enhancement Technology (FET)

    In the patented Feed Enhancement Technology (FET) the feeding zone of a Coperion ZSK extruder or of a side feeder ZS-B is equipped with a porous, gas-permeable wall section to which a vacuum is applied externally. The resulting gas extraction increases the material intake capacity in the processing of feed limited products by up to 100%. The results of the FET technology are considerable increases in the throughput rate and greater cost effectiveness of the compounding plant.

  • Pfizer CMT with Coperion K-Tron Feeders Play video

    Coperion K-Tron contributes feeders to new Pfizer CMT

    Coperion K-Tron Niederlenz, Switzerland, supplied two feeding systems comprising five feeders each to Pfizer Manufacturing Deutschland GmbH in Freiburg, Germany, as part of a project to expand their existing plant and switch to continuous production.

  • Coperion - 60 Years ZSK Play video

    ZSK turns 60

    The ZSK twin screw extruder, the “forefather” of all twin screw extruders, celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. Werner & Pfleiderer, known nowadays as Coperion GmbH, delivered the first co-rotating, closely intermeshing ZSK twin screw extruder in 1957 – exactly 60 years ago. Since then, the ZSK extruders have undergone a transformation that was inconceivable 60 years ago.
