ZE Performance Series
New Twin-Screw Extruder for the Chinese Market
KraussMaffei Berstorff GmbH, Hanover, Germany, has developed a new twin-screw extruder series especially for the Chinese market. ZE Performance twin-screw extruders are standard compounding extruders with unparalleled cost-effectiveness through a high degree of automation and maximum ease of operation.
The ZE 52 and ZE 62 Performance extruder sizes are manufactured locally in Haiyan, China, and offer the same convincing benefits of all KraussMaffei Berstorff machines: highest quality, maximum availability, exceptional modularity and unequaled flexibility combined with a low purchase price. All components are produced either directly by KraussMaffei Berstorff or in close cooperation with renowned suppliers. The ZE Performance series is exclusively equipped with in-house developed KraussMaffei Berstorff screw elements.
ZE Performance extruders come with a compact base frame that features factory-defined spaces to accommodate temperature control units, oil lubrication unit and forms the platform for the modular design of the machine. The swiveling control panel gives easy handling and clear visualization of all control functions. On-board display of important extruder information saves time and provides enhanced working comfort.
The processing section is of modular design and can be specifically tailored in terms of throughput rate and application. The ZE Performance barrel housings are perfectly suited for the entire range of standard compounding tasks. Four sizes of different design with an L/D ratio of 4, 8 10 or 12 are available for optimum adaptation to the given application. All barrel housings are characterized by precise temperature control with heating/cooling bores being arranged extremely close to the processing chamber. While cooling is based on cooling water injection, high-performance electric cartridge heaters are used for direct and rapid heating.
The ZE 52 and ZE 62 Performance extruder sizes are equipped with air-cooled or water-cooled motors. A range of specially tailored upstream and downstream systems like various metering and pelletizing units turn the twin-screw extruder into a complete production line.
