A new high-speed haul-off with a C-shaped frame for the tractors and a clear, hinged window on one side allows complete access for easier start-up, especially with delicate profiles, such as five-material automotive gaskets. The unit was developed by SMS Extrusionstechnik GmbH in Germany, part of Battenfeld Extrusion Technology, which is represented here by American Maplan Corp., McPherson, Kan. It was demonstrated at an open house in Germany last summer running drip-irrigation pipe at up to 80 meters/min. Other applications include crosslinked-PE/aluminum-composite pipe for under-floor heating, which the haul-off runs at up to 60 m/min. Options include push-button release of clamp pressure to change belts rapidly.
