The planning of the process part of MARIS co-rotating twin-screw extruders concerns a group of functional modules composed of barrels and, at their inside, of transport and kneading elements at variable geometry, which are mounted on shafts for the motion/shear transmission.
The concept of the functional modules originated from the necessity of achieving a perfect correspondence between the extruder hardware component and the process phases that can be identified with whatever compounding or reactive extrusion.
The equipment capacity to meet with the process requirements can be found, first of all, in the technicians ability to precisely establish the physical or physic-chemical phenomena occurring inside the machine, both in qualitative and in quantitative terms.
The functional modules composing the compounding extruder can be detailed in the following way:
High level hardware and software.
In order to allow the customers to exploit the high technological content of its extruders, Maris has developed sophisticated control systems. The company has always been attentive to the use of high-quality hardware and software systems, in line with the high quality standards of machinery employed.
Particular care is taken with the insertion of its production lines within the modern industrial contexts, where each component has to be placed on line and has to be able to communicate with the connected devices such as the automatic systems for raw material moving, feeding, granulation, packing …
The network connection includes the possibility to communicate with the plant management systems in order to grant a constant analysis of production data.
A tailor-made product.
Technological fruits Maris, with its co-rotating twin-screw extruders, is proud to be 100% owner of its technology. This is possible thanks to the fact that all fundamental parts are manufactured internally, with high level production and quality processes. The demonstration of this is the production of screw construction elements, in its entirety, the barrel sectors and, above all, the manufacture of their own gear-boxes.
Particular attention is paid to the search for new construction materials to be used in order to improve the performance of its extruders.
The result is extruders, whose strength is their versatility, allowing their use in a wide range of production layouts, typical of the most varied productions linked to compounding.
Maris makes productive versatility its strong point in order to provide its customers with tailor-made solutions.
