The new Compact MD series extruder from American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I., is designed specifically for cleanroom and controlled environments. The electrical controls are easily serviced and integral with the extruder frame, providing the benefit of reduced machine width and footprint. Smooth external surfaces and rounded corners allow for quick and easy wipe down. The rotating operator control station can include simple discrete controls or the customer’s choice of three levels of
AKcess touchscreen controls. The Compact Series is offered in 0.5 in. to 1.75 in. diam. The line is also available in a “Modular” variation where the barrel diameter and L/D can be changed more quickly and easily to achieve different output ranges or simply to change materials faster.
