MICRO EXTRUSION MACHINES & SYSTEMS
Machines & Systems by Rondol
“We created Rondol Industrie in Eastern France in June 2012 as a research group with the objective both to miniaturize extrusion equipment and to develop machines fitted to Pharma and Biotech standards.
Since 2012 we have redesigned and changed materials for machine parts, incorporated temperature control on all process (for fragile materials with narrow range from melting to degradation), simplified the cleaning system in between lots, and made the machine « vertical » (to divide by 5 its footprint and cope with white room capital intensity per m2). The result is a patented machine "All in One" (with easy plug in/out of ancillary devices) that we prototyped at Paris School of Physics in 2015, installed as an industrial first at Gatefossé US early 2017 and launched at AAPS in San Diego last November.
In parallel to our initial objective on Pharma and Biotech applications, our customer focus has allowed us to discover or further develop other applications for extrusion at the microscale: high temperature polymers (Arkema, France), zips copping with extreme temperature conditions (YKK, UK and Canada), cable joint moulder system (Nexans, Norway), 3D Printing filament (Greenwich University, UK) and powder compounds for other 3D technologies (Lorraine University, France) . Our plan for 2018 is to expand our technical and maintenance support from EU based to both EU and North America based and to continue to develop and implement improvements to our machines as the industry makes suggestions for improvements. You will find all our available machines & systems on this website and we of course look forward to developing new ones with you.”
