Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Revenue [Policy Text Block] Net revenue includes gross revenue less sales discounts, customer rebates, sales incentives, and product returns, all of which require the Company to make estimates for the portion of these allowances that have yet to be credited or paid to customers. The Company estimates these allowances using the expected value method, which is based upon historical rates and projections of customer purchases toward contractual rebate thresholds.
Revenue Recognition, Percentage-of-Completion Method [Policy Text Block] As of June 30, 2020, the aggregate amount of transaction price of remaining performance obligations within the Process Equipment Group and Milacron reportable segments, which corresponds to backlog as defined in Item 2 of this Form 10-Q, was $1,123.7. Approximately 78% of these performance obligations are expected to be satisfied over the next twelve months, and the remaining performance obligations, primarily within one to three years.
Revenue Recognition, Deferred Revenue [Policy Text Block]
Contract balances

The balance of receivables from long-term manufacturing contracts at June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 was $166.2 and $181.1, respectively. The change was driven by the impact of net revenue recognized prior to billings. The balance of liabilities from long-term manufacturing contracts and advances at June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 was $168.4 and $158.2, respectively, and consists primarily of cash payments received in advance of satisfying performance obligations. The revenue recognized for the nine months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 related to liabilities from long-term manufacturing contracts and advances as of September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $104.7 and $113.0, respectively. During the three and nine months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the adjustments related to performance obligations satisfied in previous periods were immaterial.
