One of the highlights from Sulzer Chemtech, the leader in separation and mixing technology, at Foam Expo Europe will be its compact aixfotec twin-screw extruder and its key components. This allows manufacturers to build a continuous process for the production of low-density, expanding or expanded foams of various shapes and forms, including profiles, sheets, pipes and beads. A wide range of polymers can be used, such as polystyrene, polyester, polypropylene and polylactic acid.

Many industries and applications can benefit from this technology, including packaging for food and other materials, construction and building materials, automotive, furniture and bedding manufacture.

Sulzer also offers laboratory models of the aixfotec extruder, suitable for research and development projects that require efficient production of low volumes or specialized products. In addition, the company can deliver fully customized pieces of equipment as well as provide assistance during the installation, commissioning and start-up of the equipment.

During the Foam Expo Conference, Daniele Tammaro Polymer R&D and Applications Engineer at Sulzer Chemtech, will join the round table discussion on “Reimagining Foams and Examining (New) Processing Technologies They Require”. The panel will take place on Wednesday, September 11 from 13:45-15:00.   

Visitors will also be able to discuss with Sulzer Chemtech’s experts the individual products presented as well as how the company can provide custom, turnkey solutions and services that satisfy the challenging needs of the foam manufacturing industry.
