TwinLab-C 20/40

TwinLab-C 20/40 is a stand-alone twin screw extruder. The drive contains an integrated motor. Due to extensive configuration possibilities, the solution can be used for a wide variety of materials. The directly driven extruder is designed for use in material development, -testing and smallest production.

Your advantages

  • Space-saving & cost-efficient: Compact solution with wide range of applications
  • Enhanced options: Use of a replaceable L-liner & compact liner possible
  • Improves your analysis conditions: Process monitoring via horizontally split liner, 6 openings for raw material addition
  • Easy to clean: Horizontally folding liner, optimized screw configuration for easy removal
  • Modern software: Easy and flexible data access via a web browser or the built-in touch screen
  • Connectivity: Support for third-party solutions (ERP, LIMS)
  • Individualizable: Configuration adjustable to your individual needs

TwinLab-C: Optimizing compact and cost-efficient materials

With the compact TwinLab-C 20/40 twin-screw extruder, you can analyze a wide range of materials in a space-saving and cost-efficient way. The newly designed compact extruder offers the possibility of using an L-liner or also a compact liner. The liner can be opened horizontally, providing an optimal view of the entire process. At the same time, you also have easier access for cleaning, which is additionally accelerated by the easy removal of the screws.

You benefit from a modern project workflow through the possibility of location-independent access by several users with different end devices. The web-based software MetaBridge also offers the option of online updates. Expand your analysis options by accessing measurement results via the integrated correlation software. Operation via touchscreen is convenient. You can also benefit from helpful features such as an integrated annotation function in the diagram and individually adjustable diagram parameters.

Cross-product benefits


The DirectTemp technology is the key factor for precise temperature control. In order to achieve high accuracies and low latencies by measuring the temperature in the sample, Brabender uses specifically designed temperature probes with high thermal conductivity directly attached to the removable measuring container in the measuring mode or places temperature probes directly in the sample.


Brabender devices with this function have a built-in computer and a touch display. This allows our customers to directly and easily start operating our devices without any IT experience. Combined with other Brabender technologies such as EmbeddedHC, this results in a very compact device setup.


Brabender’s cross-device software solution provides a consistent user experience between all Brabender units. The MetaBridge comes with various data evaluation functionality, preimplemented standards and customizable measurement methods in order to meet application specific requirements. Regular updates improve and expand your device and let you automatically benefit from the latest trends and developments.

MetaBridge Connect

The MetaBridge Connect technology provides various data exchange interfaces and flexible connectivity features. Data sharing between all Brabender MetaBridge devices in one network allows for smart workflows and process efficiency. Moreover, the integrated web-based software interface (WebAPI) connects and automatically exchanges data with natively connected database systems and / or 3rd party laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) or ERP solutions.

MetaBridge Correlation

MetaBridge Correlation is an optional software package for performing correlation studies across multiple data sets. It allows for comparison of multiple measurements and parameters in a tabular and in an interactive graphical view. Particularly for quality control purposes, the compliance with a pre-defined tolerance is automatically evaluated and highlighted.

MetaBrigde Database

The MetaBrigde Database represents a local data center in the customer network and a basic laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) for Brabender devices. Connected Brabender devices transfer measurement results automatically into the central MetaBridge database. Besides of the backup functionality, statistical analysis and crossdevice correlations between multiple data sets can be performed.

MetaBridge ExtMB

The ExtMB software belongs to the MetaBridge family and is our optimized version for the laboratory extrusion process. Here, all sensor data is summarized in an interactive measurement and this further enhances your understanding of your product.

MetaBridge labfolder

labfolder allows you to store, manage and search your measurement data in one central location, independent of the instrument. Brabender MetaBridge instruments have an automated built-in connection to labfolder. It’s never been easier to get started with lab digitization.
