Unmatched mixing performance

Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer effectively handles liquid and powder mixing, gas dispersion and Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) while reducing time, energy and costs. In many applications the Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer provides a faster and more efficient mixing than conventional methods. It combines high blending precision with minimized mixing times and up to 50% reduction in energy requirements. Based on rotary jet head technology, it can be used in tanks between 100 and 800,000 liters in size. Read More

Series 725 co-extrusion crosshead from Guill Tool

Guill Series 725 Guill Tool introduces Series 725, a co-extrusion crosshead design for tray cable applications. With all stainless steel construction, Series 725 offers machine builders and end users many advantages, including the patented Guill Seal Right system of self-aligning tapered deflector and body design. Series 725 was developed in partnership with a customer, to convert a production line from a Tandem line with two heads a distance apart into a co-extrusion line with a single head applying both layers of PVC in a single operation.

Beyond micro: nano injection molding is finally commercial

PE July Blog After nearly 30 years of R&D, nano molding may be too small to see, but it’s real. Nano details that are so small they can’t even be seen under a microscope are being injection molded. They’re read by electron microscopes or by defraction using a laser pointer. Molded nano features include invisible logos on parts to prevent counterfeiting, functional surfaces like radar deflection, and hologram-like iridescence. Read More
