Nordson Introduces "Polymer Processing Systems" Group
K 2013 marks the debut of Nordson Corporation's Polymer Processing Systems group of products and solutions, a new worldwide offering providing a broad range of technologies for melting, conditioning, dispensing and giving shape to plastics.
As the result of a series of strategic acquisitions since the last K show, Nordson now manufactures precision melt stream components starting with the screws and barrels for extrusiona and injection molding and proceeding downstream to the dies used to produce film, sheet, coatings and pellets. In between are a diversity of critical components such as filtrations systems, pumps and valves.
The companies that are part of Nordson's new Polymer Processing Systems group are:
- Kreyenborg GmbH, Münster, Germany
- BKG Bruckmann & Kreyenborg Granuliertechnik GmbH, Münster, Germany
- Nordson Xaloy, New Castle, PA/USA
- Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries, Chippewa Falls, WI/USA
- Verbruggen, Temse, Belgium, belonging to Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries
"Our strategy is to bring together complementary companies to optimize polymer processing efficiency and quality that serve our OEM customers, ultimately helping them to deliver the highest value and system performance to their end users", says Peter Lambert, senior vice president of Nordson Corporation.
