Smart manufacturing analyzers save plastics processors time, improve quality


Advanced Polymer Monitoring Technologies Inc. (APMT; New Orleans, LA), a spin-out company based on Tulane University technology, has released two products for polymer and biotechnology applications. APMT entered into an exclusive license agreement with Tulane for a number of patents and patent applications invented by Prof. Wayne F. Reed, Director, Tulane Center for Polymer Reaction Monitoring and Characterization (PolyRMC).

APMT develops, manufactures and distributes products and services for the real-time monitoring and control of polymer reactions across all synthetic and natural polymer sectors from R&D through high-volume industrial production.

The underlying technology for APMT's automatic continuous online monitoring of polymer reactions (ACOMP) product line, was developed in Prof. Reed's lab over the past 16 years. The commercialization of this technology allows polymer producers to monitor fundamental polymer properties continuously during the manufacturing process, enabling more efficient control over the quality of the product and the use of production, feedstock and energy inputs.
