General Information

TwinLab-C: Optimizing compact and cost-efficient materials

With the compact TwinLab-C 20/40 twin-screw extruder, you can analyze a wide range of materials in a space-saving and cost-efficient way.

The newly designed compact extruder offers the possibility of using an L-liner or also a compact liner.

The liner can be opened horizontally, providing an optimal view of the entire process. At the same time, you also have easier access for cleaning, which is additionally accelerated by the easy removal of the screws.

You benefit from a modern project workflow through the possibility of location-independent access by several users with different end devices. The web-based software MetaBridge also offers the option of online updates. Expand your analysis options by accessing measurement results via the integrated correlation software.

Operation via touchscreen is convenient. You can also benefit from helpful features such as an integrated annotation function in the diagram and individually adjustable diagram parameters.

  • Properties and melt behaviour
  • Fusion behaviour
  • Heat and shear stability
  • Plasticizer absorption of PVC-dry blends
  • and much more

The viscosity determines the product consistency and influences the processing properties. Among other things, the gelatinization properties and enzyme activity (alpha-amylase) in flour determine the baking properties:

High enzyme activity, triggered by premature sprouting in wheat or rye, leads to sticky dough which causes problems during processing.

  • Ceramic materials
  • (Full) doughs and whipped masses
  • and much more
  • Plastics industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Rubber industry
  • Cosmetics industry
  • Cement industry
  • Food industry
  • and much more
  • Recipe development
  • Production of samples on a laboratory scale
  • Material testing
  • Quality control during production
  • Optimization of production processes
  • Viscosity measurement
  • Goods receipt inspection

The MetaBridge can be used on any operating system or end device. You can monitor measurements simultaneously from any number of end devices. Similarly, any number of users can access the individual projects. You can easily record your measurement results, after which you have convenient evaluation, printing, and export options.

The MetaStation 4E desktop drive supports you at all process stations:

  • Goods receipt and recipe development:
    • when testing the processing behavior
  • During production:
    • process control of your products
    • Ensuring a stable production process and a constant product quality
  • Goods issue:
    • End product control
    • Ensuring compliance with specifications and the quality of the finished product
  • Research and Development:
    • Formulation development
    • Material development
