Brabender® GmbH & Co. KG remains, after more than 90 years, the leading supplier of instruments and equipment for testing material quality and physical properties in all fields of research development and industrial production in the chemical and food industries. The wide range of instruments consists of laboratory extruders and drive units, as well as measuring mixers and different test equipment for sample preparation, moisture content and online measurements. To ensure optimum support for customers in China and in other Asian countries, Brabender has been collaborating with Melchers Techexport GmbH for over 40 years.
Rheological measruing and testing instruments for the plastics- and rubber/caoutchouc industry as well as for the general chemical- and food industry.
Plastograph EC plus
The economical torque rheometer for mixers and extruders
The Brabender Plastograph EC plus is a table-top torque rheometer for applicational investigations or processing tasks in laboratories and simulation. Connected with a measuring mixer or measuring extruder head, it allows measuring raw material quality in advance before it is used in production.
The measured values (torque, speed and temperature) are relating to the material behaviour and allow conclusions about its rheological properties.
The device is equipped with a 3.8 kW drive motor, which provides 200 Nm torque and maximum 150 min-1 speed.
Universal torque rheometer for all kinds of process-technical investigations or processing tasks in laboratories and simulation
With its 16 kW drive power, the Brabender Plasti-Corder Lab-Station provides 400 Nm torque and 350 min-1 speed. Different kinds of measuring mixer or measuring extruder heads can be attached.
It is used for raw material and recipe development, material testing, quality control parallel to production, process optimization as well as laboratory-scale production of samples for further investigations.
According to the customer’s specific application, different die heads, mixer blade geometries and extruder screws are available.
In-line sample production presented live at Chinaplas
By means of the Brabender SpeciMold, compounders can take a sample of a newly modified formulation that was compounded on any lab scale single or twin screw extruder while the remaining process is continuously running.
Quickly and in one step, specimens from polymers with or without fillers can now be produced immediately. The polymer is only melted once, preveting unwanted alterations of material properties.
Voted the most innovative product presented at K2016, the Brabender SpeciMold has been honoured with DirectIndustry’s iNOVO Award.
Brabender will present this in-line sample production process live at Chinaplas 2017.
Through an injection molding process, the Brabender SpeciMold enables an automatic and continuous production of polymer specimens for further material analysis, such as tensile tests.
This novel procedure enables specimens to be produced in one step without interrupting the compounding process. The specimens exactly comply with raw material properties used in production. Unwanted alterations won’t occur since the material does not have to be re-melted.
The SpeciMold can be applied e. g. by formulators, additive manufacturers and compounders for incoming goods inspection. Moreover, it supports R&D laboratories in quality control. According to the user’s specific requirements, it can be connected with single and twin-screw extruders regardless of its manufacturer. Individual injection molding parameters can be edited and the molding tool can be changed for producing specimens with different shapes.
