Measurement and control company hires hose and tubing veteran Chris Johnston.
Unit reportedly provides a no-noise cut.
Calculating polymer flow is fairly straightforward when designing a die for a simple round profile, but as the shapes get more complicated these calculations can get extremely challenging. Here’s what you need to consider.
Newly installed Davis-Standard extrusion lines address swab-stick demand.
Demand for building products is thriving, and profile extrusion houses are looking to expand capacity. The question they—and possibly you—face is to simply add more single-profile lines or “go dual.” Here’s what you need to consider.
Aimed at PVC pipe, profiles, and wood plastic composites, among others.
Said to be engineered to minimize operator involvement and use of hand tools, thereby improving safety.
Processors add three new Davis-Standard silicone extruders to increase production of tubing line.
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.
Modular sytems can extrude 4- to 26-in. pipe and has capability up to 48 in. in lengths of 500 ft or more.
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.
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.
Here is review of popular extrusion cutting technologies, strengths and limitations of each, and common problems and solutions.
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.
