A complete powder coatings system capability by Baker Perkins meets rising demand from the industry for single-source, integrated lines.
Systems are based on Baker Perkins’ MPX range of twin-screw extruders, purpose-designed for powder coatings. Baker Perkins is then joined by partners providing specialist technology for each part of the process, to offer full, industrial-scale continuous lines for high-quality powder coatings with capacities reaching 2,900 kg/hour.
Baker Perkins ensures that the capacities and capabilities of all individual units are matched, that mechanical and electrical interfaces are optimized, and that a centralized control system covers the whole fully automated line. Control systems provide clear, at-a-glance visualization of the process, including current status of all major components and parameters.
Continuous processing gives productivity and product quality improvements, overcoming many of the drawbacks of traditional batch processing alternatives that require time, effort and investment. Continuous processing reduces many process stages to one, lowering investment, energy, labor and space requirements with negligible waste.
In addition to the extruder, a complete process line comprises mixing, weighing and feeding the mix before the extruder, and cooling, flaking and grinding after the extruder.
Baker Perkins works with a number of different partner companies, who can supply all the pieces of equipment required to put together a full process line. Each of our partner companies specializes in their particular technology, so customers are assured of excellent performance throughout the process.
