AIMPLAS organise third edition of compounding workshops
The third edition of the compounding workshop ‘The art of mixing, reinforcing and incorporating additives to plastics’ is going to be held at AIMPLAS’ facilities in Valencia, Spain on 9th-10th May 2018.
Luis Roca, Head of the Compounding Department of AIMPLAS, will lead the workshops discussing the latest innovations in the field of compounding.
This workshop is aimed at companies who want to strengthen their knowledge in compounding, particularly in techniques such as plastics mixing, reinforcing, additivation and co-rotating twin screw extrusion.×
AIMPLAS says the workshop has several objectives, including identifying the essential concepts for optimum mixing in each compound, determining the most appropriate equipment for each process, to be able to design a new compounding process and to be able to control the most important parameters in the production of a compound.
The course will also put emphasise on topics such as screw design, control process, Co-TSE description and troubleshooting.
On the second day, practical training will be carried out explaining the most important concepts for the obtaining of inorganic fillers and glass fibres compounds.
