Feddem, manufacturer of co-rotating twin-screw extruders, has extended its range of MTS machines to include a new size, with 82mm screw diameter, which it is exhibiting at Fakuma. The FED 82 MTS frame size has a new, powerful gearbox with a torque density of over 16 Nm/cm³ and drive power of 800 kW. Feddem says the new compounder is ideally suited to the manufacture of larger production batches of engineering plastics and, depending on the product formulation, a throughput of two to four tonnes/hour is possible. Designed according to the same principle as all other machines in the product family, the FED 82 MTS also has screws without kneadingblocks, ensuring gentle processing of engineering plastics, and offers the same operational versatility.
