OCS to present innovative & customer-specific solutions at this month's Expo

After the cancellation of last year's trade fair, the time has finally come. OCS GmbH will present itself with expert solutions for quality control and assurance at this year's Polymer Testing and Compounding World Expo in Essen, Germany, from 28 to 29 September 2021. Innovative, customer-specific and modular. These are the buzzwords to attend. This event brings together professionals from the polymer and compounding industry for two days of networking, knowledge sharing and innovation topics.

Laboratory analysis as well as online process monitoring and optimisation

No matter if impurities that show a colour deviation from the product, metal defects or the classification of upper and lower size as well as the abrasion of pellets - with OCS devices you can find every raw material defect and every irregularity that appears. For this purpose, they are equipped with innovative camera technology and special lighting systems. Furthermore, they are individually adapted to the requirements of the products to be produced by the raw material manufacturers or compounders.

They can be used both as laboratory systems for quality control and assurance and directly in production as online systems for real-time monitoring of polymer quality. For this purpose, a continuous online measurement is made and an immediate process optimisation can be realised by the operator. The quality of the raw material can also be defined. Faster classifications and approvals of the products can be guaranteed, which ultimately results in better service for the customers. At stand D578 in hall 3, OCS GmbH will present the OCS Pellet Scanner PS25C, which can be used as a laboratory or online device. A special feature is the optional sorting unit on this device, which simultaneously separates contaminated granules from pure granules.

Inspection Standards in the Polymer and Cable Compounding Industry

The polymer and compounding industry is striving for production integrated and standardised analysis concepts to perform measurements in real time. Especially in the production of polymers and compounds for the cable industry, the quality of the raw materials is extremely important. The product quality of the raw materials is significantly improved by online quality control and assurance. On the occasion of the technical conferences during the trade fairs taking place, OCS GmbH will present lectures which will give more details on the standardisations.
