Single-point concentricity extrusion tooling.
A single-point concentricity extrusion crosshead uses micro-fine adjustment screws for precise concentricity adjustment. The precision of concentricity reaches 0.008" or finer per revolution. This single point concentricity adjustment is said to be the company's unique innovation for the extrusion of thin-walled jacketing and precision ID/OD tubing. One adjustment bolt controls 360[degrees] of adjustment.
Features of the single-point crosshead are said to include a patented cam-lock deflector for quick changeovers, with a residence time of one minute at .5 pound/hour material flow, optimized usage with extruders measuring 1/2" and 3/4", and a maximum die ID of .250".
Additionally, the company's single-point crosshead is said to offer great flexibility to its users. It not only accepts both vacuum and micro-air accessories, but is also said to be ideal for pressure and sleeving applications. Fluoropolymer designs are available upon request.
With more than 55 years of experience, the company is said to be recognized as the extrusion technology leader in the design and manufacture of extrusion tooling for numerous applications, including medical tube, multi-lumen and multi-layer, profile products and fiber optics. Also included is extrusion tooling for automotive hose and tube, industrial hose and tube, pipe, blow molding, blown film, food, packaging, pelletizing, rubber and silicone, wire and cable, and wood composite.
