Brabender offers instruments and equipment for the determination of material quality and physical properties. Those are applied in research, development and production in the worldwide plastics and rubber industry, among others. Mixers, extruders and other equipment as single units or complete test lines are available for a broad range of applications. Guaranteeing highest product quality, the research, development and production of instruments and application software take place exclusively in its headquarters in Duisburg (Germany). Brabender provides its customers with a comprehensive advice and support, e. g. in the field of material testing, process optimization and sample preparation on a laboratory scale. The company also owns a technical applications laboratory in which customers can also test the instruments themselves. The Brabender service staff is in the field worldwide and makes sure that the durable instruments are working continuously and satisfactorily.

TwinLab-C 20/40: Perfect compounding system on a small scale
The compact twin-screw extruder is the ideal companion for the development of recipes and processes.
Possible applications: feasibility studies, material developments in research institutes and industry, analysis of material behaviour during a process, developments in the field of recycling, quality control, production of samples or test specimens
Applicable for: compounding samples with or without fillers or additives, e.g. from thermoplastics, technical plastics, thermoplastic elastomers, ceramic materials or metal oxides.
The TwinLab-C 20/40 offers the greatest possible flexibility for various applications, including a wide range of die heads and modular screws. The tests can be performed with different L/D ratios. The openings can be flexibly equipped with dosing systems, thermocouples, pressure transducers, liquid/gas pumps or a vacuum pump.
MetaStation 4E: Compact torque rheometer for the laboratory table
The new MetaStation 4E allows fast and uncomplicated measurement of the rheological properties of the material to be investigated. In conjunction with an extruder or mixer measuring attachment, it determines the processing and plasticizing behavior.
Its use for trials has clear economic advantages over machines that are otherwise used in ongoing production. After all, compared to large-volume machines, only a fraction of the raw material quantity is consumed.
Application possibilities: recipe development, material testing, incoming and outgoing goods inspection, quality assurance during production, process optimization, sample production at lab scale.
