Pipes and profiles can be extruded by a new range of single-screw extruders offered in four sizes, covering the medium-output range from 50 to 500 kg/hr, with the supplier boasting the lines offer consistently high specific throughput at every screw speed. The new uniEX single-screw extruders from battenfeld-cincinnati can run a broad range of thermoplastic materials from PVC and polyolefins to thermoplastic elastomers and engineering plastics.
The uniEX joins the twinEX twin-screw extruder series and the solEX single-screw extruder series for high-speed applications.
With a 30L:D processing length, cincinnati-battenfeld says the machine design has been optimized on the basis of some 3000 extruders installed worldwide and numerous proven screw geometries. Screw diameters of 35-, 45-, 60- and 75-mm are available.
