Product overview

Xplore is the pioneer in microprocessing and shaping instruments that offer high quality, reliable and reproducible results of highly viscous compounds in R&D. This guarantees a more cost-efficient, speedier recipe (formulation) development and shorter time-to-market.

Our tabletop micro compounders are designed to mimic the mixing behaviour of large, co-rotating, twin-screw compounders while offering precise control of temperature, mixing intensity and mixing time. Sample volumes range from 2 ml (the smallest in the world)* to 15 ml and even 40 ml, so researchers can easily and quickly produce high-quality test samples with small volumes, thus cutting costs and winning costly R&D time.

Our shaping instruments are of the same high quality and consist of injection moulders, fibre lines, cast film lines and a 3D filament line that are compatible with the Xplore micro compounders and extruders and several other types of extruders.
