-Purpose Posi-Melt XL
TM
Features of the PM Posi-Melt XL
Meter depths designed for maximum
throughput.
Average of 45% more exposure to the
barrel wall for more efficient melting.
Stepped design adds a high degree of
mixing to the melt stream.
Extended melting lengths compared to a
standard GP design.
More thorough melting while using a low
compression design.
Large leading and trailing flight radii for
pressurized flight channels and no mate-
rial contamination.
Positive feeding pressure, designed to
feed even the hard to feed materials.
Low RMS value for better solids convey-
ing.
Consistent recovery times on all screw
sizes.
Feed lengths based on resin type and
application.

Channel volume controlled by previous
channel meter depths for low pressure
loss.
Disruption of melt stream with exten-
sional strain, relaxation and cross flow
for distributive mixing.
SMQI of at least 6.0 times better than
a GP design.
XL MIXING SECTION
The revolutionary Multi
TM
-Purpose Posi-Melt
TM

screw is the Ultimate Multi-Purpose screw for tough
injection molding applications. The XL
TM
design adds
a high degree of additional melting and mixing to the
polymer making this design one of the most advanced
designs in the world. Repeatability and melt homoge-
neity are the basis for high productivity from an
injection unit. From a process engineering perspective,
the control variables that help us determine the
correct injection screw design are: Resin type,
Residence time, Swept volume, Plasticating rate,
Screw torque, Cycle time, Melt temperature and Melt
homogeneity. When the application demands precise
color match with residence times lower than 90 se-
conds only an advanced design such as the XL will be
able to deliver a quality molded part (see fig. 2).

Better melting and mixing at a cooler processing tem-
perature means higher quality molded parts, (see
results graph) greater yields and increased profits!
