The 900 Series runs in a range of 1-5 layers simultaneously and from 0.005" (0.127mm) – 8.0" (635mm) diameter hose or tubing for all types of OEM, medical, food service, automotive, industrial, wire and cable applications.
West Warwick, RI – The Series 900 of inline tubing dies from Guill Tool & Engineering Co., Inc. offers improved extrusion performance and capabilities to customize at standard, off-the-shelf prices.

The series is applicable to extrusion of hose or pipe ranging from 0.005" (0.127mm) to 8.0" (635mm) in diameter for all types of OEM, food service, automotive, industrial, telecom and medical applications in polymer or rubber.

The Series 900 technology offers these key benefits:

• Achieves concentricity or “product roundness” which greatly reduces material usage compared with other types of extrusion tooling
• Spiderlesss inline-designed heads results in no spider lines and allows room for more air -- thus eliminating cold legs, which can inhibit product output
• Runs 1-5 layers simultaneously
• Engineered for a multitude of applications -- including special fluropolymer applications

A key Guill technical highlight of the Series 900 is a patent-pending FeatherTouch™ adjustment in the die holder and a cartridge-style ball assembly that does not require the loosening of retaining screws to make adjustments. Additional unique benefits of the Series 900 include Guill’s Seal Right Systems, a positive seal, which eliminates leakage between deflectors, along with easy self-alignment that reduces operator error during assembly and is adaptable to a variety of specific extruder layout configurations.

“This series offers a standard platform design of the head with specific characteristics that are unique to individual applications included at no additional charge in the cost of the tooling. This is a tremendous benefit to a company that requires precision tooling with custom benefits at a standard off-the-shelf price. That certainly helps our customers’ bottom line,” said Bill Conley, Guill Sales Manager.
