Reliability and accuracy of TSE simulations
Producing high technical polymers
A reinforced PP with natural fibbers
During the extrusion workshop organized by the Fraunhofer, experiments were performed on a 27 mm diameter extruder. The goal was the adjustment of parameters in order to produce a PP compounds, reinforced by natural wood fibers.
The Woodforce dice pellets has been used for this demonstration with a standard PP grade. The adjustment consisted in regulating the temperature of the material and optimize the residence time. Indeed, those two process parameters are a key factor for the processability of the Woodforce material.
4 set of different operating conditions are presented on the hereafter curves.
Controling the temperature
Controling the Residence Time
High reliability for technical products
As a result, this comparison is the opportunity to establish the very good capability of Ludovic in identifying and anticipating the key parameters for optimizing the quality of technical products.
Simulations performed with the Ludovic software allows to :
