EuMBC Information

Polymer Engineering & New Technology

Research topics in the field of compounding and extrusion include process development (allowing completely new mixing processes with twin-screw extruders) and material development (generating improved material properties on the basis of new material).

Screw configurations, new dosing, granulation and degassing techniques have been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology. The Institute works on the implementation of completely new technological concepts and processing ideas.

For example, the Institute has introduced ultrasound in the screw area of an extruder to improve the dispersion of particles in the melt and significantly increase degassing.

Interesting topics that you may want to see in practice.

EuMBC has accepted the kind invitation from the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology. A visit of the Institute is planned during the next EuMBC Plenary Session on the 26th and 27th of May.
