Growing demand for its patented G2 and G3 product lines has prompted Carolina Color Corp. (Salisbury, NC) to purchase a new extruder from NFM/Welding Engineers Inc. (Massillon, OH). The TEM Series extruder, on display at the recent NPE (pictured), uses a co-rotating, intermeshing twin-screw manufactured by NFM/Welding Engineers under an exclusive North America TEM license from Toshiba Machine Japan. The new extruder will give Carolina Color’s Delaware, OH, operation expanded capabilities.

“We have been relying on NFM for our extrusion equipment for both of our plants for the past 15 years because these machines are very reliable and capable of extruding the highest quality material we need for our G2 and G3 product lines,” commented Jeff Smink, COO of Carolina Color. “Also, their service and the knowledge of the engineering staff in compounding color is second to none. Without this partnership with NFM, we would not have been able to develop these technologies and grow our company as fast as we have since the launch of G2 in 2008.”
Paul Roberson, President, NFM/Welding Engineers, stated, “The partnership with Carolina Color over the years has been important for the growth of both companies. Our companies have both learned how to improve our products and processes since the launch of these game-changing color technologies. We are looking forward to the new growth of Carolina Color since its purchase by Arsenal Capital Partners late in 2017.”
