Smart Production Solutions for the Extrusion of Battery Compounds
Research into new Industry 4.0 solutions for the production of lithium-ion batteries, Coperion as a research partner of the Technical University of Braunschweig As a project partner, Coperion GmbH, Stuttgart, supports the Technical University of Braunschweig in the research of smart production solutions in the extrusion of battery compounds. The overriding aim of the "DaLion 4.0" project (data mining in the production of lithium-ion battery cells) is to develop new Industry 4.0 approaches for the production of lithium-ion batteries and to use the findings for more efficient and more effective manufacturing. To this end, concepts for cyber-physical production systems are being developed and integrated into the production of battery cells. Continuous production with Coperion twin screw extruders The research project is divided into various areas of activity and is supported by several industrial partners. One key aspect of this research is the investigation and conversion of the mixing process of the electrode slurry from a batch process to continuous extrusion. The continuous extrusion process using a twin screw extruder

Chemical Recycling of Mixed Plastic Waste Coperion Supplies Twin Screw Extruder to Ghent University for Chemical Plastic Recycling.
Chemical Recycling of Mixed Plastic Waste
Coperion Supplies Twin Screw Extruder to Ghent University for Chemical Plastic Recycling. Due to its intensive dispersion and devolatilization output, Coperion’s ZSK twin screw extruder is extremely well suited for energy-efficient chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste. Stuttgart, June 2021 – Coperion is supplying an extrusion system to Ghent University in Belgium for comprehensive research and development tasks in chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste. Coperion designed this laboratory system, built upon a ZSK 18 MEGAlab twin screw extruder, especially for chemical recycling of post-consumer waste within a throughput range of 1-10 kg per hour. Along with the extruder, it includes a feeder from Coperion K-Tron as well as a vacuum unit. Plastic waste, especially packaging waste, is generally a mixture of materials with a high degree of contamination. Recycling this raw material is usually difficult, as sorting and cleaning of waste is in many cases neither economically viable nor technically feasible. Chemical recycling is a promising process

How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling®
How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste
APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling® Stuttgart, October 2020 – For its innovative, solvent-based plastic recycling process Newcycling®, APK AG in Merseburg, is relying on the high-performance ZSK extruder technology and technical process expertise from Coperion. Using the Newcycling® process, multi-polymer and multi-layer plastic packaging, that previously could not be recycled, can now be separated and processed into homogeneous regrind using ZSK twin screw extruders. In contrast to chemical recycling, the polymer in this process remains unchanged and does not require energy- and cost-intensive re-polymerization. Newcycling®, therefore, is highly efficient from a cost and from an environmental perspective. Thanks to the innovative, solvent-based Newcycling® treatment, as well as the excellent devolatilization performance and gentle material handling in the ZSK extruder, the quality of the recyclates is close to that of virgin product. Plastic Waste as Challenge and Opportunity The amount of plastic

Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials
Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders
While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials Free-flowing bulk-solids handling can be tricky. You need to ensure a uniform discharge while maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials. Coperion K-Tron has thoughtfully engineered a line of vibratory feeders that achieve high accuracy via patent pending technology. Chemical Processing spoke with Urs Helfenstein, R&D mechanical engineer, Coperion K-Tron, regarding what makes the K3 vibratory feeders different from other feeding technologies. Q. What factors affect the selection? A. With vibratory devices, there are very different technologies available. For example, there are electric drives, which create a lot of noise. There are pneumatic devices, but pressurized air is an expensive power source. There are rotating masses to create vibration or oscillation. In this case you have moving parts, which means maintenance issues. We went down a new road and examined how masses are balanced. Shock absorbers are essential when it comes to

Extruder with Remote Commissioning and Modernization Coperion’s Solution for Extruder Service in Challenging Times
Extruder with Remote Commissioning and Modernization
Coperion’s Solution for Extruder Service in Challenging Times Stuttgart, August 2020 — Coperion successfully achieved the complex modernization of a ZSK 250 high-capacity extruder completely utilizing remote processes and support. As this recent example shows, Coperion has successfully evolved its modernization efforts to utilize the Coperion ServiceBox, an integrated system for online monitoring and failure recording in extruders and compounders, as well as communication methods like video and telecommunication to complete customer requests. This ZSK 250 extruder modernization package encompassed both a control software update as well as mechanical overhauls on the system. A significant throughput increase was achieved on the extruder by modernizing the gearbox, mounting a new coupling, installing a ZS-EG side devolatilization and updating the EpcNT control, including a rebuild of the control cabinet and monitor. Coperion’s three member team, based in Stuttgart, Germany, worked directly with the customer to ensure proper software

Profitable Recycling and Upcycling with ZSK Extruders How to recycle and upscale profitably
Profitable Recycling and Upcycling with ZSK Extruders
How to recycle and upscale profitably This producer of recompounds uses rejected parts accumulated from plastic components manufacturing as primary raw material and processes it into recycled, new-product-quality plastic compounds. After a major fire in their production area in 2017, this plastics company decided once again to rely on ZSK twin screw extruders from Coperion. Those three ZSK 45 Mc18 twin screw extruders have been in successful operation since early 2019, and with their high throughputs and their reliability, they have fulfilled every requirement that the company needs for their innovative business plan. Technology for First-Rate Compounds In manufacturing technical plastic parts, typically there is approximately a five percent rejection rate. The company purchases this production waste, then examines the precise composition and varietal purity. Once they pass quality control, the single-variety plastic parts are ground, fed into the compounding process and pelletized. The result is pellets
