Through an injection molding process, the Brabender SpeciMold enables an automatic and continuous production of polymer specimens for further material analysis, such as tensile tests.
This novel procedure enables specimens to be produced in one step without interrupting the compounding process. The specimens exactly comply with raw material properties used in production. Unwanted alterations won’t occur since the material does not have to be re-melted.
The SpeciMold can be applied e. g. by formulators, additive manufacturers and compounders for incoming goods inspection. Moreover, it supports R&D laboratories in quality control. According to the user’s specific requirements, it can be connected with single and twin-screw extruders regardless of its manufacturer. Individual injection molding parameters can be edited and the molding tool can be changed for producing specimens with different shapes.
