The industry leader in high performance feedscrews.
Celebrating over 40 years in business, Glycon is an innovator in the design and manufacturing of feed screws, barrels, non-return valves, tie bars, feed throats and other melt stream solutions for injection molding, extrusion and blowmolding. With a unique combination of standard products and custom engineering capabilities, Glycon helps plastics processors increase material throughput, shorten cycle time, improve mixing of color and additives, and generally enhance product quality and plant productivity.
Here at Glycon, we have a wide range of feed screws, barrels, non-return valves, feed throats and other meltstream solutions for injection molding, extrusion and blowmolding machinery.
A seasoned team, deep in engineering experience gives us the ability to design and develop leading edge solutions.
Glycon technicians are in the field almost every day performing services that help customers optimize productivity and reduce scrap rates. In addition to manufacturing new feedscrews, we rebuild and repair feedscrews and also reline barrels and feed throats.
We optimize screw performance by testing several different designs on your material and then zeroing in on the best melting and mixing combination for your application.
Glycon offers a complete range of feedscrews, barrels, non-return valves, mixing screws, feed throats, end caps and nozzles for injection molding, extrusion and blow molding machinery.
With the rapid growth of the focus on the environment, BIOPLASTIC TECHNOLOGY has become a critical component of the future of the plastics industry. Glycon has recently re-configured their screw design laboratory, now designated as the "INNOVATION LAB", to facilitate testing of the processability and performance of new environmentally friendly polymers.
As processors gear up for production on a new project, Glycon’s dedicated Innovation Lab has the resources to help
GLYCON CORP. (founded in 1978 as Great Lakes Feedscrews) has been successfully designing and manufacturing feedscrews for plastics processing machinery
