Coperion and Coperion K-Tron are system and equipment suppliers, including extruders, feeders, pneumatic conveying and components, who understand the importance of process efficiency. We design, develop, manufacture and maintain systems, machines and components for the plastic, chemical, pharmaceutical, food & pet food, mineral and nonwoven industries.
With more than 30 locations, 2,500 employees and numerous representatives worldwide, Coperion and Coperion K-Tron can respond quickly and offer local support where it is needed. From transferring the raw ingredients from the truck, railcar, bulk bag or silo; batch weighing, feeding and scaling of major, macro and minor ingredients; all the way to the mixing, twin screw extrusion process steps, our systems engineering groups ensure that all aspects of the complete system design conform to the most current process design standards.
Twin screw extruders are ideal due to a combination of large free volume and excellent wear resistance. For the handling of ingredients, the highly accurate volumetric and gravimetric feeders are provided for both batch and continuous applications. Bulk solids material components, such as rotary, diverter and gate valves, as well as bin vents and receivers are used for the transfer of a large variety of materials, including the most difficult to handle ingredients.
