Nordson introduces plasticizing unit for high-speed molding of thin-wall packaging


During NPE2015, Nordson Corp. will showcase in booth W6263 a high-rate plasticizing unit that incorporates an innovative screw design, which will produce enhanced-quality melt at rates that make possible shorter cycles in injection molding of high-speed, thin-wall packaging.

The Nordson Xaloy Quantum plasticizing system includes a barrier screw designed to increase the rate of plastication for unmelted material while minimizing shear forces on polymer that is already in a molten state. Along with the innovative screw, Nordson supplies a custom-designed poppet-style non-return valve, whose free-flowing channels prevent polymer degradation and whose rapid shut-off ensures shot-to-shot consistency.
