Our mini-extruder has a volume of 15ml has a temperature range of room temp to 350C. It also has a water cooling jacket to aid cooling and temperature accuracy. The extruder can be fit with fibre and tape dies for the direct extrusion of fibres and tapes. Normally Nanoforce extrude a strand and chop, then post press using, a hot press (for example) to produce the desired sample. The machine has computer telemetry giving data indicative of the viscosity, which (can be) proportional (or at least related) to the mixing efficiency.
