KraussMaffei’s extrusion division launched its high-performance ZE BluePower series certainly not in a strictly chronological order, but following a consistent approach. For the third time in a row, these twin-screw extruders will be among the highlights showcased at K 2019 in Düsseldorf from October 16 to 23. While the medium-size models were introduced six years ago, followed by the laboratory machine three years later, the time has come for the launch of the large-size version. The four big compounding extruder variants for throughput rates of 2,500 kg/h and more will be available immediately after the end of the exhibition. As the ZE BluePower series now comprises tailored extruders for any type of application and offers at the same time enormous process-engineering benefits, it will replace all previous twin-screw extruder series.
“Since its market launch in 2013, the ZE BluePower has gained a strong foothold in the market for a wide range of compounding tasks as well as for reaction and degassing applications. This series stands out for unparalleled output rates, short set-up times and maximum cost effectiveness,” says Matthias Sieverding, President of the Extrusion Technology Segment at KraussMaffei. “The new series is designed for large national and international compounding companies with high production capacities where maximum reliability in 24/7 operation is a must,” continues Sieverding.

Extensive information on the new series will be available at the KraussMaffei booth B 27 in hall 15 during the K 19 exhibition. “The results obtained in first trials using a high-filled polypropylene formulation with 50 % of an only 1 μm fine talc were perfectly in line with our expectations and furnished ample proof of the outstanding performance of this innovative and trend-setting machine concept,” says Matthias Sieverding.
