Conair has introduced two new pieces of downstream extrusion equipment — a new servo-driven saw and a “hybrid” extrusion-cooling tank, with integral dry table. These products increase line speed and productivity, while improving product quality and saving valuable floor space. Designed for high-speed pipe extrusion and composite lumber lines, the new CTS traveling cutoff saw features servo drive for speed and accuracy and more substantial bearings and rugged linear rails to stand up to tough duty. The saws come in three sizes to handle pipe diameters of 5, 7 and 9 inches, and profiles as large as 9 by 17 inches. The CTS can make as many as 25 cuts per minute (depending on profile size) and throughput rates as high as 100 ft/minute. Most competitive saws have a top speed limit of less than 50 ft/minute. To accommodate these high speeds, the saw can be built with up to 48 inches of table travel, double what other saws provide. This, plus a new control system with high-speed microprocessors and new software, means no other saw is faster. A space-saving cooling tank/calibration table ‘hybrid’ can cut floor space requirements by as much as 50% compared to an installation with individual components. The unit combines a high-intensity spray-cooling tank with a table to accommodate dry-calibration tooling and is intended for small rigid profiles that otherwise would require a full size tank and separate calibration table. For instance, a new 7-ft hybrid tank/table can be specified in place a separate 4-ft dry table and 10-ft tank. The Conair high-intensity spray-cooling tanks are already space efficient, thanks to turbulent cooling created by a uniform, 360° high-volume spray pattern of water that covers all profile surfaces with extremely small water droplets that efficiently pull off BTUs. Although water is sprayed in very fine droplets, the tank brings a tremendous amount of water to the surface of the profile. While a conventional tank might pump 100 gal/min, the high-intensity tank pumps 360 gal. For more information, call the New Product Hotline at 1-888-486-6601
