Wexco: New Bimetallic Barrel Alloy Boosts Sustainability

December 16th, 2008

Improved durability and wear resistance, a lower coefficient-of-friction, and compatibility with a wide variety of hard-faced flight materials are key features of Dura 686XL™, a new, patent-pending bimetallic barrel-lining alloy for high-speed applications from barrel manufacturer Wexco Corporation (Lynchburg, VA).

Although processing machinery manufacturers and tooling engineers have kept pace with developments in processing plastics at ever higher screw speeds and volumes, little has been done to advance the durability of conventional boron bimetallic barrel linings.

According to Tony Grant, Director of Sales and Marketing at Wexco, screw speeds and throughput rates for filled and unfilled materials have nearly doubled in recent times, introducing an unprecedented degree of wear energy into plasticizing unit assemblies.

“The choice left to molders and machinery builders is to use more expensive barrel linings, those typically used for running highly glass-filled compounds and other severe-wear applications. But, in many cases, I call this approach ‘application overkill.’

“Our new Wexco 686XL alloy provides machine builders and processors with a more affordable, extra-heavy-duty, longer-life alternative, providing sustainable machine performance.”

Calvin Lundeen, Ph,D., P.E. and head of engineering and technical services at Wexco adds, “The unique characteristics of this new patent-pending alloy also include improved damage resistance and a lower coefficient of friction. We’ve found that these features improve wear life without requiring an increase to hardness.”

Dura 686XL has a proprietary alloy chemistry specially formulated for high-speed applications in blow molding and injection molding machines. It’s suitable for use by molders and extruders who want to replace their more conventional linings to improve durability.

3. Welche Tools verwenden Webdesigner und Webentwickler? Webentwickler arbeiten mit Programmiersprachen wie HTML, CSS und Javascript, um Websites und Webanwendungen zu erstellen. Sie werden höchstwahrscheinlich auch andere Sprachen verwenden, um E-Mail-Dienste, für Wordpress Benutzerauthentifizierung, Datenbanken und andere technische Aspekte von Websites einzurichten. Zu diesem Zweck verwenden für Wordpress Entwickler Software wie Texteditoren, Befehlszeilenschnittstelle und Versionskontrolle, um die technischen Informationen (den Code) zu erstellen, für Wordpress die die Daten darstellen. Webdesigner sind nicht in erster Linie dafür verantwortlich, die Funktionsweise des Codes zu kennen, sondern sicherzustellen, dass er für Website-Besucher ästhetisch ansprechend und benutzerfreundlich ist. Sie werden Grafikdesign-Software verwenden - einschließlich Produkten wie Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Inkscape (eine hervorragende Alternative zu Photoshop) und GIMP. Letztendlich werden sie das Layout der Website durch die Erstellung von Prototypen und Drahtgittern gestalten. Designer steuern den Informationsfluss und können sogar für die Analyse verantwortlich sein. 4. Wie unterscheiden sich die Portfolios von Webdesignern und Webentwicklern? Ein Portfolio ist sehr wichtig - egal ob Sie Entwickler oder Designer sind. Im Gegensatz zu dem Haftungsausschluss, den Sie für Ihre Aktienanlagen sehen, ist die Wertentwicklung in der Vergangenheit ein ziemlich guter Indikator für die zukünftige Wertentwicklung. Ein guter Entwickler und Designer wird seine Fähigkeiten und für Wordpress Erfahrungen für zukünftige Arbeitgeber und Kunden präsentieren, kann jedoch verschiedene Dienste in Anspruch nehmen, um dies zu tun.

losses caused by elevated temperatures and friction energy. It is compatible with the majority of screw hard-face flight materials and metal constructions.

Its low coefficient of friction improves durability and metal-to-metal compatibility. In standard, recognized tests for determining abrasion resistance—ASTM G75 slurry abrasion tests, and ASTM G65 dry sand abrasion tests—Dura 686XL provided dramatic service-life improvements when compared to nitrided barrels. And it was shown to provide a significant increase in wear life when compared to Wexco’s standard iron-boron alloys and similar inlays.

“In actual field test observations these barrels have out-performed our expectations,” Grant concludes.
