1 WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager North American Distributor:Extrusioneering International, Inc.
2 WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager Screw design for co-rotating intermeshing twin screws:Design/layout elements to align with barrel openingsDocument configuration for archiving, reporting
3 WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager Limited availability of OEM screw design softwareExco (Coperion), TEX (JSW)Configured for OEM machines onlyMust have graphics, export and archiving capability
4 WinTXU™ Twin-Screw Extruder Configuration Manager Cost of one screw design ‘error’Kneading block mistakenly positioned within vent portError occurs since graphic image not availableLost production to identify errorDowntime to reconfigure screw (estimate 4Cost of materials (scrap produced to identify ‘error’)WinTXU can pay for itself if one ‘error’ is avoided !
11 …or select custom shaft (specify actual shaft length or number of barrels/spacer plates and let WinTXU calculate length of shaft)
12 Assemble barrels by double-clicking on list or icon (also can drag-and-drop)
13 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
14 Cumulative barrel, shaft and screw lengths displayed here Rotate screws to see animation
15 Input all operating conditions to be stored, printed with screw
17 You can change units used for displaying operating conditions
18 Input all details for die, breaker plate and screens
19 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.)
