Measuring Extruder (ME20/ME25/ME30/ME40/ME45)

The OCS Measuring Extruder (ME) is used for the production of polymer films for laboratory and small series production. The extruder is equipped with a flat film die and, if necessary, a downstream OCS Modular Film Analyser to enable further quality measurements. The system is controlled via a touch panel to set up device parameters and recipes. In addition, the optional Remote Control Function allows the Measuring Extruder (ME) to be displayed and controlled from various locations. Another feature is the automatic turning system, which allows easy cleaning of the extruder barrel, die and screw. The extruder then automatically returns to its exact setting position to simulate the same condition as during production.
