Experiments, MDPE10 -

One of our recent developments in the extrusion testing lab has been a stationary testing unit version of our MDPE10. What we hoped to achieve with this unit was a more rigorous and exhaustive test program that could monitor and log data in real-time under different extrusion conditions. This would in turn give us a more developed understanding of ideal parameters for melt flow and output for any given polymer, thereby optimizing efficiency.  A brief description of how some of these factors play out during extrusion in a screw and barrel system such as on the MDPE10: The barrel is...

We are excited to announce the latest addition to the MD lineup of extruder accessories: the Material Conveyance Unit! It’s okay, you can call it the MCU for short, all of us at the lab do too. The MCU was born from the need to keep our large format printers supplied with pellets through the course of long prints. Unlike a conventional filament-driven desktop printer that could run even an overnight print on a single 1 kg spool, these printers could require 5 kg, 10 kg, or an even greater supply of pellets to successfully complete a twelve-hour print. Such...
