Processors add three new Davis-Standard silicone extruders to increase production of tubing line.
Said to be engineered to minimize operator involvement and use of hand tools, thereby improving safety.
Veteran tubing guru Alpert to be part of machine builder's technical and customer support, including product development and system testing.
Enables use up of to 20 calibrators in the cooling system.
Custom Profile started almost 30 years ago with one employee and one extruder, and has evolved into an international processing business with three plants serving a variety of markets. And plans are in the works to expand further.
Modular sytems can extrude 4- to 26-in. pipe and has capability up to 48 in. in lengths of 500 ft or more.
Instead of turning down a job or farming out cutting to another company because of downstream bottlenecks, Eagle Elastomer can now handle all extrusion process functions in-house.
Advances in downstream extrusion equipment have boosted production control.
Using a slit-die viscometer connected to a lab extruder can generate accurate data on melt viscosity at various shear rates and temperatures, a useful QC tool in processing.
Billed as ideal for large-diam. pipes, new extruder provides processor with higher output and better quality while consuming less power.
The ProfilControl7 S from Pixargus, Würselen, Germany, in an inline gauge that reportedly makes it possible to inspect the complete wavy structure of corrugated tubing gaplessly.
Unit automatically and securely straps finished coils of small-diameter extruded tubing.
Just a decade ago, roughly 10% of HDPE corrugated pipes made by Advanced Drainage Systems used recycled material. That number is 65% now, and growing. Here’s how this processor became a pioneer in this field.
Novel system uses compressed air to dry profiles without damaging or distorting them.
Here is review of popular extrusion cutting technologies, strengths and limitations of each, and common problems and solutions.
Flexible hinge on multi-manifold EDI Ultraflex Die from Nordson reportedly delivers uniform weatherable layer for PVC siding, saving more than $55,000/yr in capstock cost alone.
Machine builder expediting shipment of Ultra line of extruders as tube makers ramp up production for ventilators resulting from Coronavirus.
New technology from Novatec packages next-generation multi-pass tank, novel gauging technique, and enhanced coilers to boost rates to 1000 ft/min or more without tube-quality issues.
The more you know about what happens in a screw, the more you’ll be able to work with your supplier to optimize design.
New system can detect flaws in pipe areas deemed undetectable previously.
Series comes with a range of standard features. Customization also available.
