Single-Screw Extruder for a Wide Range of Applications
Flexible machine for pipe, profile, tubing, sheet, and more.
The SV350 from Milacron is billed as a robust and flexible single-screw extruder for pipe, profile, tubing, sheet, fiber, and wire and cable applications. The SV350 is a stock machine making quick delivery possible. It’s available in sizes ranging from 2–4.5 in. with a 24:1 L/D ratio. Milacron both designs and builds full extrusion systems in-house, maintaining complete control of precise equipment needs.
All things being equal, PET will outperform PBT mechanically and thermally. But the processor must dry the material properly and must understand the importance of mold temperature in achieving a degree of crystallinity that allows the natural advantages of the polymer to be realized.
A lot of things must be in place to achieve what I like to call efficient extrusion.
Tips and Techniques: Boosting Extrusion Productivity - Part III of III: Trim Your Material & Energy Costs
Material cost is the largest cost factor in most extruded commodity products, so processors should be motivated to reduce these expenses.
