The Xflow series from Zwick Roell of extrusion plastometers introduced last year by Zwick/Roell AG, a worldwide leader in materials and component testing solutions, has received a strong market response across a wide range of applications.
The Xflow series includes the Aflow system, designed for high throughput use; the Mflow system, intended for typical quality assurance applications and the compact Cflow system, according to Florian Liebert, XFlow series marketing manager.
“The various models within the Xflow series are rapidly becoming the leading choices among customers looking for the ideal extrusion plastometer solution for their specific application,” Liebert said.
For customers who value operator convenience or who have a high testing rate, the Aflow system represents the optimal choice, Liebert said. Aflow features include automatic parameter control, stepless load adjustment up to 50kg and rapid residual material extrusion post-test.
Aflow features also include uniform pre-compacting and labor saving cleaning at the push of a button. Multiple instrument operation is supported with up to 6 instruments on one PC.
The Mflow system was developed to meet the needs of R&D, QA and goods inward check, Liebert said. The modular design of the Mflow enables easy upgrading and retrofitting.
Among the most popular features of the Mflow is the equipment’s flexibility. Mflow can be fitted with extrudate cutters, a displacement tranducer for MVR measurement and a weight-lifting unit.
The Cflow system is designed for applications where space is at a premium. Cflow offers precise temperature control and the option of manual or automatic extrudate cutter.
The entire Xflow series is compatible with Zwick’s industry leading testXpert® II software via a USB-enabled connection.
