Custom Compounding

The Process

Our custom-tailored screw configuration program provides cost-effective versatility. Computer visualization depicts the relationship of the screw elements to the extruder barrel, permitting engineers to place the screw elements strategically in order to maximize control over the process. The program allows Niche’s technical staff to quickly and accurately specify a screw that meets the unique mixing requirements of specific projects at the highest possible throughput rate.

Our technical staff has vast experience developing application-specific equipment required for custom polymers. Process technicians are assigned to projects to oversee the actual production and ensure the compounded pellets satisfy customer specifications.
