Process Engineering School by KraussMaffei

ColVisTec is happy to be part of the New Process Engineering School at KraussMaffei. We will give a lecture on the subject of inline process monitoring using spectroscopic methods.


  • Understand compounding processes on twin-screw extruders.
  • Grasp the design of a twin-screw extruder in a material-specific context.
  • Recognize opportunities for process optimization and identify sources of error.
  • Apply materials science approaches to formulation and process engineering.
  • Comprehend material testing in theory and practice, enabling well-founded assessments of product quality.


  • Machine Technology: Covering the entire process from raw material handling to granulate filling, including selection, designs, and concepts.
  • Plastics Technology: Exploring the physics and chemistry of plastics, additives and fillers, recipe formulation, and material properties.
  • Process Engineering: Delving into extruder design, establishing correlations between process and measured variables, screw design, and scale-up methodologies.
