Little coextruder, big energy savings.
Having no gears saves space in a crowded circle of seven or nine extruders. Gears also waste energy as frictional heat, which dissipates in the plant and can disrupt the bubble. Synchronous torque motors are water-cooled and dissipate 37% less energy than standard DC motors or 30% less than AC motors, Addex says. Baumuller is developing a larger motor for a 90-mm Addex extruder. Addex: (781) 344-5800 * PTDirect: 274WX
