The OEC Lab Extruders are the ideal small batch extruder for practical and realistic solution for all industries. These Lab Extruders can process a wide variety of material and verifies performance expectations of production extruder. The Lab Extruders are widely used for R&D testing and low-volume production requirement.
There are virtually unlimited die configurations available. These Lab Extruders can be outfitted with optional system controls and cutting equipment. The customization is endless when it comes to the OEC Lab Extruders.
1. Same quantity of material used to do multiple tests
One of our clients produces its own master batch and has a constant requirement for new formulations and colours. They used to process all this in their 45mm compounding unit, which would easily gulp up 50 kgs in order to process the required parameters for the compound.
They came across our lab extruder and started using it. Their usage of materials dropped down considerably from 50 kgs to just 5 kgs, giving them ample time to adjust the parameters and try on new formulations in the same 50 kgs material.
2. Money saved
They process materials which cumulative cost of around Rs. 550/kg.
50 kgs of materials would cost Rs. 27,500/- for a single trial, apart from electricity required to operate and the space utilization of the machine.
With our Lab Extruder, the total cost of the same trial came to around Rs. 2,750/trial, saving around Rs. 24,750 or 90% of the cost. Apart from the material cost, the cost of processing also decreased as compared to heavy load requirement of 45mm extruder.
