American Kuhne introduces modular microextrusion system at MD&M

The system will include American Kuhne's newest AKcess Level II control system that includes a 19-inch widescreen that can be mounted anywhere on the line. The AKcess Level II control system incorporates 3D graphics and includes mobile access via iPhone, iPad, Android and other tablet devices.[image_0_right]

The company offers modular extruders that enable barrel and screw "modules” to be changed quickly and easily. Modular microextruders are offered in 13 mm (1/2”) and 16 mm (5/8”) sizes. These machines are ideal for very low output applications where conventional size medical extruders such as a 25 mm (1”) machine can not be used because the long residence time in the barrel will degrade the polymer. These machines are available in 20:1 L/D and 24:1 L/D. All microextruders include pressure control and servo drive systems. Melt pumps are available as an option.
