MPX19 benchtop extruder upgraded with remote support

Baker Perkins’ MPX19 benchtop twin-screw powder coating extruder for academic, laboratory and development work has been upgraded with remote software support.

This enables Baker Perkins engineers to log in to a machine anywhere in the world for fault-finding and software updates. It is particularly appreciated at facilities such as Universities, where there may not be software engineer support.

The MPX19 incorporates features that replicate the range of Baker Perkins’ production scale extruders, and ensure reliable scale-up to their outputs. Applications include examining process problems, extending product lines, and developing new processes. The MPX19 is also an ideal tool for companies moving from batch to continuous processing that need to establish the processing parameters necessary to match their existing product.

The clam-shell barrel and segmented screw assemblies that are features of all Baker Perkins extruders enable different screw configurations, process settings and formulations to be tested and assessed quickly by stopping the machine and opening the barrel to view the state of material being processed.

Adjusting and testing the formulation, process parameters and screw configurations are all uncomplicated. Automatic start-up and shut down minimize the time needed between runs.

Control system functionality matches that on production machines. There is a full recipe management system with a 50 formulation capacity, and full data logging.

An electrically heated / water cooled barrel gives tight temperature control; a chill roll is included; and barrel lengths can vary from 15:1 to 40:1 L/D, with multiple process zones for a variety of applications.

Industry 4.0 ready

All Baker Perkins powder coating extruders are Industry 4.0 ready. Industry 4.0 harnesses data from all the machines, devices, sensors, and people in a manufacturing operation and enables them to communicate with each other via a local network or the Internet to make informed and timely decisions.
