STEER Engineering Launches Twin-Screw Extruder ALPHA 40 S for Plastic Industry

Delhi, February 11, 2009: STEER Engineering, a globally acknowledged force in polymer processing machinery headquartered in Bangalore , announced the launch of ALPHA 40 S, a revolutionary Twin-Screw Extruder for the plastic industry. It allows supreme processing capabilities at amazing screw speeds. Alpha 40 S was unveiled by the Visionary Dr. Babu Padmanabhan - Founder and CEO of Steer Engineering at the PlastIndia 2009 in New Delhi.

The extruder is conceptualized and designed out of India for the needs of fast changing market requirements of emerging economies.

"ALPHA 40 S is the culmination of efforts by STEER Engineering to enable the tremendous growth in the plastic industry across the emerging economies globally. It is the result of a vision to participate and lead in changing the landscape for the polymer compounding industry with intensive product development. The ALPHA 40S provides industry the best combination of state-of-the-art technology, future-proofed architecture while being cost effective", said Dr. Babu.

The entire Extruder Processing Zone (EPZ) is based on the modular design concept. All the barrels can be de-assembled by means of the special quick clamp system. The screw shafts have been designed with split construction comprising of a safety shaft and adapter and the Continua (TM) splined shaft. Continua Spline avoids stress concentration in both Screw Shafts and Screw Elements, thereby increasing torque carrying capacity.

"Our product strategy is to provide the world's best performance/price ratio line of extruders, with open interfaces, high throughput, lower energy costs, client specific feature, offering customers service creation ability and ease of management. The key technical accomplishment is STEER's success at developing a high performing extruder based on a modular architecture", added Dr. Babu


STEER ENGINEERING Private Limited is a leading solution provider in the field of polymer compounding and plastics extrusion.

STEER was established in the year 1993 to manufacture Screw Elements for Twin-Screw Extruders, using Computer Aided Engineering. Since then, STEER group has grown to be a globally acknowledged leader in the Polymer Compounding Industry.  Over the years, STEER has steadily increased its product portfolio, infrastructure and human resources.

It is the goal of STEER to contribute to sustainable and environmentally friendly materials development in the developing world, as well as in the developed world where the environmental footprint has to be urgently minimized. For more information:
