There’s no better time than now to purchase the capital equipment you know you will need before the end of the year. By taking advantage of the Section 179 Deduction and Bonus Depreciation you will enjoy significant savings from your equipment purchases. This is a use-it-or-lose it write off that ends December 31, 2017, so get off the hump and place your orders now to ensure delivery before the end of the year.

Section 179 at a Glance for 2017
2017 Deduction Limit = $500,000
This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2017, the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service between January 1, 2017 and the end of the day on December 31, 2017.
2017 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,000,000
This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true “small business tax incentive”.
Bonus Depreciation: 50% for 2017
Bonus Depreciation is effective through 2019. Businesses of all sizes are able to depreciate 50% of the cost of equipment acquired and put in service by December 31, 2017. It is generally taken after the Section 179 spending cap is reached and is available for new equipment only. Bonus depreciation will phase down to 40% in 2018 and 30% in 2019.
Here is an updated example of Section 179 at work during this 2017 tax year.

The above is an overall, “simplified” view of the Section 179 Deduction for 2017. For more details on limits and qualifying equipment, as well as Section 179 Qualified Financing, please visit www.section179.org

What to Expect from Lancaster Products High Shear Mixer Sample Testing

Our last post focused on our experience in concept testing and how it applies to our high shear mixer sample testing process. This post will dig in a little deeper and provide insight into the breadth of data we provide to our customers when they commission Lancaster Products to provide sample testing for them.

Over the past 30 years, we have collaborated with our customers to perform proof of concept testing in our K1 laboratory mixers for thousands of materials samples. The desired outcome of the testing is customer dependent but typical requirements are along the lines of pelletizing/granulating to specific size ranges and desired yields, mixing to achieve homogenization, or reduced reaction times of existing processes. Outcomes provided are 1) proof of concept in achieving the desired product, and/or 2) optimization of the current mix processes. Our engineers perform the tests in our controlled laboratory, log all key information in our database, and share all data with our customers for future reference. Below is a list that summarizes some of the information we collect during every test run we perform:
