GLYCON SERVICES

Innovation Lab

Glycon has recently re-designed their screw design laboratory, now designated as the "INNOVATION LAB", to facilitate testing of the processability and performance of new environmentally friendly polymers.

Feedscrew Rebuilding

Feedscrews have the ability to be rebuilt to allow for multiple uses once the feedscrew has been worn beyond its processing capabilities. Glycon can help to bring the screw back to original specifications.

Formulating fresh ideas, defining new ways of doing things, sponsoring progress: the people of Glycon never stop looking for new ways to help our customer

Product & Process Development

As processors gear up for production on a new project, Glycon’s dedicated Innovation Lab has the resources to help optimize screw performance, testing several different designs and then zeroing in on the best melting and mixing combination. Or, if a molder is having a problem with splay or burning, or if an extruder is not getting proper mixing or sufficient throughput, technicians at the Innovation Lab can reproduce these problems under controlled conditions and quickly find ways to attack the problem through the application of the latest screw and processing technology.

Rebuilding Services

Glycon experts can help extend the life of costly meltstream components. Feed screws can be repaired to match original performance specifications. Barrels can be resleeved to original dimensions.  All done quickly and with the highest standard of quality.

Preventive Maintenance/Installation

Glycon can assist with setup and maintenance of your feedscrew and related meltstream components. We can also design a maintenance program to reduce downtime and keep your systems operating as efficiently as the day they were installed. And we can train your maintenance personnel or implement the program ourselves.
