CPM Extrusion Group launches an online portal

Issue: June 2018

CPM Extrusion Group, Traverse City, Mich., has launched its Extrusion Knowledge Center, an online portal interested users can use to access a library of archived training webinars.

Although CPM has been presenting free monthly twin-screw extrusion training webinars since 2013, the company now is making the training available online where more than 35 webinars can be downloaded or viewed online for a modest fee, the company said.

Topics for CPM’s 2018 webinar series include Twin-Screw Extruder Barrel Temperature Control, Side Feeding Technology, Twin-Screw Extruder Shaft Design and Accuracy in Extruder Scale Up. The company will continue to offer free monthly webinars.

The Extrusion Knowledge Center is designed to provide 24/7 access to the company’s learning portal for those customers who need it most, said Adam Dreiblatt, Century’s director of process technology, who is leading the e-learning effort. Each webinar is broadcast three times per day to correspond with European and Asian time zones.

“There is no shortage of twin-screw compounding extruders around the world, but the training and knowledge to operate, maintain and troubleshoot is missing,” he said. The Extrusion Knowledge Center can be accessed online at  www.cpmextrusiongroup.com
