EXTRUSION: Self-Adjusting Pullers

Unit opens on its own to accommodate pipe/profile size.

Belt and cleat pullers from CDS Machines, Montreal, can now be equipped with a new feature in which the top-beam conveyor arm automatically self opens to accommodate the size of the pipe or profile. Compared to fixed systems, this feature is said to enhance flexibility and facilitate start-up by eliminating part slippage, crushing, and machinery damages that can occur during string-up or product changeovers.
