Werner & Pfleiderer Extruder History
In 1945 Rudolf Erdmenger started a “High-Viscosity Technology” group and developed the fully self-wiping profile for co-rotating intermeshing screws. This was the inception of the ZSK twin screw extruder, which remains functional over a wide range of viscosities or frictional properties of the processed material.
We are not the Werner Pfleiderer OEM, but we do service their products. If you would like to contact the Werner Pfleiderer OEM you can contact them at:
