The Most Reliable Performance in Polymer Compounding Extruders

NFM’s extrusion technology has been used for polymer compounding for over a half-century. Offering both the intermeshing screw technology of our TEM series, and the non-intermeshing design of our WE series extruders, NFM can offer the polymer compounding system that’s best suited for your application.

Polymer compounding is all about adding the highest level of value to your compounded products at the lowest level of operational cost. As a leading manufacturer of intermeshing twin-screw extruders, non-intermeshing twin-screw extruders, and full polymer compounding turnkey systems, we are uniquely qualified to support your process requirements.

Available Equipment Includes

  • TEM Series Co-Rotating Intermeshing Twin Screw Extruders
    • High shear capabilities for superior melting of multiple polymer streams
    • Intensive dispersive mixing for excellent homogeneity
    • Flexibility of screw and barrel configuration design for various feed streams
  • WE Series Counter-Rotating Non-Intermeshing Twin Screw Extruders
    • Low shear and high surface renewal for superior washing & venting
    • Wide feed openings and downward screw motion for excellent feed acceptance
    • Long L/D ratios permit multistage additions
    • Reduced wear due to minimize rubbing surfaces in the non-intermeshing design
