  • Extruders from 50 mm to 180 mm (30D) mounted on base frame, pre-wired and ready for connection
  • SMB extruder screw with

    • performance and flow optimized barrier zone for universal application, including LDPE / (m-) LLDPE, PP, PA, EVOH, EVA, PS, and PET
    • feed-effective spiral shear section and highly efficient crosshole mixing section
    • maximum wear resistance through tungsten carbide coating of screw flights

  • AC gear motor or gearless torque motor
  • Hopper section with temperature controlled smooth feed bush
  • Bimetal feed barrel with tungsten carbide based wear protection
  • Electric heating and air cooling
  • One or two melt pressure probes and one melt temperature probe
  • Screw extractor
