Coperion Nanjing to open new plant in China

Extrusion machinery maker Coperion (Nanjing) Machinery will move to a new facility in the Nanjing Jiangning District in September 2015. The company’s current production site will in the future be designated for R&D and Technology use only as per Nanjing Jiangning Government’s plan. With the support of the Government of Jiangning Economic & Technology Development Zone, Coperion was able to find a new plant for manufacturing and production purposes nearby. Construction work started in May 2014 and will be finished in June 2015.

The new Coperion plant in Nanjing with a footprint of more than 15,000 sq m will continue to focus on manufacturing the STS and CTE twin-screw extruder series. In order to serve Coperion’s manufacturing needs the new building is designed with machinery production technology with engineering and manufacturing know-how from Coperion Stuttgart, Germany, and an optimised, tailor-made workshop layout for efficient production. A centre with new German-made CNC machines and centralised air conditioning to ensure the high machining precision will also be integrated as well as new advanced manufacturing machines.

Furthermore, a new quality control centre is being established, equipped with high-precision equipment for 3-dimensional inspection and barrel leakage testing. It is completed by barrel washing equipment, chemical composite analyser, magnetic detector and hardness tester for alignment after assembly.

The Coperion Nanjing test centre, currently equipped with a STS 35 and a STS 50 compounder, will be extended with comprehensive upstream and downstream equipment, including material handling, to provide customer process tests. In order to be able to offer customers a broader variety of application tests and increase testing capacity, a new ZSK 32 Mc18 twin screw extruder with 18 Nm/cm³ torque will join the two existing STS compounders in late 2015 for tests, simulation and scale-up.
