Energy-Efficient Use of Drives
Process-Oriented Design of the Main Drive for the Extruder
Manufacturers of standard extruders sometimes incorporate oversized drives into their machine designs in order to be able to cover a wide range of requirements. In times of high energy prices, however, this is no longer economical. An extruder should be equipped with a drive package that is matched to the gearbox and the ‧processing unit. But what are the requirements governing the design of the drive system?
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
