This course, while very practically oriented, is dominated by lecture-style presentations, supported by a single practical demonstration. This “applied" extrusion course, which we have presented in Thailand since 2011, takes a different approach, providing participants with an understanding of the theory of the extrusion process, combined with pilot plant exercises demonstrating how the principles are applied across different products and extruder types. Introductory sessions cover relevant extrusion theory, followed by discussion in which the product formulation, and screw configuration/process parameters are “designed”.

Five different products are made on three different types of extruder (long barrel single screw, twin screw, and collet extruders) during the three-day course.
