New extrusion software enables rapid screw and barrel layout design

Extrusion technology company Entek (Lebanon, OR) recently introduced a software program that allows customers to quickly and easily design screw and barrel layouts for its co-rotating twin-screw extruders.

The software includes several built-in features designed to provide users with the ability to specify, and provide a drawing of, exactly what they need for their applications, according to the company. Among the features:

  • Drag and drop functionality on all components, including barrel sections, screws, metallurgy and more that customers need to specify;

  • automatic calculation of remaining space on screw shafts;

  • safeguards to prevent putting certain elements where they do not belong;

  • easier part ordering, as complete part numbers are furnished within the program;

  • and easy save within the program or export to an Excel file once design is complete.

Interested parties can view and use the screw design program at http://screwdesign.entek.com.

Entek manufactures turnkey production extrusion systems, twin-screw extruders and components for natural fiber-plastic composites, pelletizing, custom compounding, specialty sheet lines, food and medical applications. For more than 30 years, the company has also innovated in the design and production of microporous battery separators for lead-acid and lithium batteries.
