In July, our collaborative paper with RWTH Plastics Institute IKV on the "Numerical design of distributive mixing elements" was published online.

We are now proud to announce that the patent on the resulting geometry was released this month. Our shape-optimized design improves distributive mixing by up to 25 %, paving the way to more cost- and material-effective extrusion.
