Global compounding extruder deliveries pick up pace

In a sign that global investment is picking up in the plastics sector, Taiwanese compounding extruder supplier Sino-Alloy Machinery Inc. (Taoyuan) has scored a number of successes of late in delivery of equipment to Asia, the Americas, and the Middle East.

Sino-Alloy extruder on show at Taipeiplas is bound for Brazil.

Speaking to MPW at the recent Taipeiplas show, managing director Mike Chen said a leading pipe extruder based Turkey recently took delivery of a 92-mm twin-screw extruder for pipe compounds, while another extruder went to Japan for manufacturing nano compounds.

In the Americas, a sheet extrusion processor took delivery of a 700-kg/hr twin-screw extruder for talc-filled PP compounding in July last year, and two more are slated for delivery this coming April. Further south, thermoplastic elastomer compounder FCC (Campo Bom, Brazil) is soon to take delivery of a 600-kg/hr PSM72A corotating twin-screw extruder.

Business is also picking up closer to home for compounders. Sino-Alloy-affiliated Polyalloy Inc. (Taoyuan) says last year it was down to extruding only 500 tonnes/month of compounds at the time of the market trough. The company has capacity of 2000 tonnes/month for a variety of commodity and engineering plastic compounds. A recovery in the electronic sector, however, has seen output double to 1000 tonnes/month of late. —[email protected]
