Big Area Additive Manufacturing, or BAAM, is attracting entrepreneurs and machinery developers.
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.
As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.
Kuhne adds pulling, cutting and conveying units.
Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.
American Kuhne's 16-mm micro extruder is designed to process fluoropolymers for miniature medical devices.
Across all extrusion technologies, expect to see new standards in speed, quality, flexibility, and efficiency in both energy and material usage.
Machine building to move to York, Pa.
Designed for medical tubing, the Modular Micro Extruder from American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I.,provides the versatility to quickly and easily change barrel and screw diameters and feed-section configurations.
The Graham Group, York, Pa., last month announced it had bought controlling interest in American Kuhne (AK), the Ashaway, R.I.-based manufacturer of extruders, screws, and integrated extrusion systems.
New Backdraft extruder from American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I., has a reverse-air cooling system suited especially to blown film that removes heat and undesireable air currents from the extrusion area for optimum bubble stability while also improving energy efficiency.
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.
A new coextrusion line from American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I., features one 12-mm and two 16-mm microextruders mounted on a common base.
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.
Kuhne GmbH blown-film technology will now be available to North American processors through sister company American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I.
American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I., has introduced a gearless extruder aimed at medical tubing.
Because of their use in critical applications, processors of medical tubing have little or no room for error.

The new Compact MD series extruder from American Kuhne, Ashaway, R.I., is designed specifically for cleanroom and controlled environments.
This NPE show won’t have a lot of extruders on the floor, either running or static. Instead, look for videos and announcements of new technology. You will also find lots of ingenious peripheral devices to improve output and quality and save resin. Some will do all three, and cost less into the bargain.
