Why should you view this course?

To adjust to the new standards and customers' demands (in automotives, E&E, home appliances...), you are required to produce more formulations. And while doing so, you need to ensure that the scraps are kept to the minimum and a good balance between productivity & quality is achieved. 

Looking to get practical tips to control your compounding process better? Join this course and:


1. Learn the key concepts to start understanding & controlling your compounding process (co-rotating twin screw extruder machine set-up, screw design, pelletizing, material feeding, cooling...)

2. Achieve a good balance between production and quality by standardizing the way of working (reduce scraps)

3. Meet the demands of today's consumers (in automotives, E&E, home appliances...) & get to profits sooner.
Essential Concepts for Optimal Compounding

Who should view this course?

Compounders, masterbatch producers who want to master compounding process to meet today's demands + improve productivity & quality. 

Companies (extruders, engineers, technicians...) that want to set up a compounding line in their facilities.
