Time-saving and versatile new in-line production procedure
The SpeciMold produces polymer specimen in a single step in-line, not needing several process steps as conventional production procedures require. Thus, the specimen producer saves your time and is gentle to the used material, as it is only melted once in the process.
The specimen have exactly the same properties and characteristics as the extrusion polymer and are, therefore, perfectly suited for further mechanical property tests.
Stay flexible and use the SpeciMold the way you require it. For it is compatible with Brabender single and twin screw extruders as well as with third-party extruders, the injection molding parameters are easily editable, and the injection molds can be changed quickly, giving you a great amount of possible specimen.
The SpeciMold is subdivided into a heated SpeciMold block with a piston and an injection die, and an injection mold which can be opened and closed through a toggle mechanism.
In a classical compounding line, the SpeciMold is positioned between the twin screw extruder and the extruder die head.
The polymer is homogenized, molten and transported as usual in the extruder. Then, the melt passes the SpeciMold block before it is shaped in the extruder die head, cooled down in the water bath, and cut in the pelletizer.
