slide2

WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager

Screw design for co-rotating intermeshing twin screws:

  • Design/layout elements to align with barrel openings
  • Document configuration for archiving, reporting
slide3

WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager

  • Limited availability of OEM screw design software
    • Exco (Coperion), TEX (JSW)
    • Configured for OEM machines only
    • Must have graphics, export and archiving capability
slide4

WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager

  • Cost of one screw design ‘error’
    • Kneading block mistakenly positioned within vent port
    • Error occurs since graphic image not available
    • Lost production to identify error (estimate @$350/hr)
    • Downtime to reconfigure screw (estimate 4 hours @$350/hr)
    • Cost of materials (scrap produced to identify ‘error’)

WinTXU can pay for itself if one ‘error’ is avoided !

slide5

WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager

  • WinTXU database
    • All co-rotating intermeshing, modular twin-screws
    • All barrel types (including custom designs)
    • All screw types (including custom designs)
slide6

slide11

…or select custom shaft (specify actual shaft length or number of barrels/spacer plates and let WinTXU calculate length of shaft)

slide13

Assemble screw configuration from component library (either click on component name or drag and drop using mouse)

Inventory feature keeps track of elements on-hand, warning message when you exceed inventory level

slide19

Export screw configuration (with or without operating conditions, with or without element identification) as bitmap images, then paste into any Windows application (i.e. PowerPoint, Word, etc.)
