The cold fed ram type extruder is said to give a very high level of process repeatability.
Features: Injection unit has 5 or 10 cavities; blowing wheel module has 2 molds; 5:1 ratio between injection and blowing cavities; continuously turning extruder screw for melt homogeneity; low-cost tooling (shell molds, one set of tools).
Session 8 on troubleshooting will focus on product geometry, extruder operation and compounds.
Independent table-top extruder is a compact, self-contained system with a 1-hp motor and worm gear reducer.
Also, the material may still not be suitable for bulk storage and handling and may not feed well at the extruder. Rubber-insulated wire and cable producers often find it necessary to just live with the inconveniences associated with strip fed materials.
Motionless mixing elements include Thermogenizers specifically for extrusion, which deliver homogenized melt streams to the die and have mixing capacities independent of extruder output.
Patented warm-feed system predensifies, size reduces and prewarms scrap before it enters the extruder. This minimizes heat history, resulting in low-material degradation.
American Maplan showed a 75mm, 34:1 sheet extruder using a four-motor direct drive from Knoedler.
Achieving better bimodal polyolefin compounds is the object of Coperion's ZSK-NT (new tandem) twin-screw, which pairs a short (20:1), high-speed (350 to 700 rpm) twin-screw for melting the resin with a long (24:1), slow (80 to 150 rpm) twin extruder for mixing.
This is evident in the fact that when the injection plunger is operating and the shut-off valve between the extruder and plunger is closed, the plasticating extruder must be stopped, since the melt has no place to go.
Ram (preform) extruder auxiliary devices will be highlighted, including shear head, cavity transfer mixers and gear pumps.
Davis-Standard is showing the first North American-built extruder with a gearless permanent-magnet torque motor (from Siemens) on its new EMDD (Electric Motor Direct Drive) extruder.
