    At Coperion we strive to be responsive to the needs of our customers. To make sure users of ZSK twin-screw extruders thoroughly understand the technology and are kept abreast of the latest technical advances, Coperion has developed in-house courses specifically for the ZSK Twin Screw Extruder System. The objective of these courses is to provide process engineers, operations supervisors and operators with an understanding of the fundamental and practical aspects of the design and operation of the ZSK.

    ZSK 101 TRAINING COURSES - 3 DAYS

    ZSK 101 is a three-day course which takes an in-depth look at twin screw extrusion process design. It includes sections on process unit operations (feeding, melting, mixing, etc.) scale-up, compounding, modeling and materials of construction. A full course outline is shown attached.
