Product category: Single screw extruders

Extruder with long helical grooves

The series Helibar uses the technology of the same patented name which consists of a grooved extruder with two main differences. It uses a monobloc barrel and the grooves are present on nearly its whole length. These grooves are arranged helical. This technology appeared in the beginning of 2000 and combines the advantages of the smooth and the grooved extruder, namely an important specific flow volume and a large universality considering the different polymers. The Helibar extruder is longer than the extruder of the other series and they are coupled systematically to screws so called barrier screws. This series exists in different Versions: C version for the coextruder- mobile machines, U for the principal extruders, so called universals extruders, and P for the principal extruders for polyolefine.

Product category: Single screw extruders

extruder grooved feeding zone

The series Arc uses a barrel in two parts: A grooved barrel sleeve with a length of 3-6D and a smooth barrel with approximately 25D. These extruders appeared in the beginning of the year 1980. They should achieve a higher flow volume with the same diameter of the screw. In general they are longer than the extruder with a smooth barrel and they are linked to screws so called barrier screws. Due to the fact that they are less universal than the extruders and coextruders of the series Elipse, the machines of the series Elipse are mostly used for Polyolefine (PE and PP) as well as for soft material (soft PVC, TPE). The grooves can be straight (in the axis of the machine) or generally helical.

universal extruder smooth barrel

The series Elipse uses a smooth or slightly grooved barrel. Originally it is the first extruder which appeared in 1950. They have the advantage of being universal (for each kind of polymere that is known) and being of an interesting cost for a given screw diameter, however the maximal flow volume is limited. Komax offers these machines optional with slightly grooved barrels. Slightly grooved means that the size of the grooves is smaller than the size of the granulate material. Consequently it is not about an increase of the mass but of the stability. In some cases this technology is essential for a correct extrusion. This series is available in two versions, as a C version for the coextruder (mobile machine) and as an E version for the extruder which are mainly fixed.

About us

Company details

Komax is specialized in the development and production of single screw extruders and coextruders as well as in the configuration of extrusion lines ready-for-use.

Always listening to our customers, we are willing to have the newest technology for our extruders and coextruders. Due to the human environment of our society, we are able to listen and respond to special wishes of our customers. According to that we can develop specific machines und processes as requested.

Komax aligns its development with 3 decisive aspects:

Compact machines: space and weight saving is the base of our conception. Our machines feature always more functionality and at the same time a smaller floorprint and less weight.
High performance: constant increase of the specific flow volume, adjustment of the screw to the polymer, we try everything to achieve the best results with our extruders
Reduced consumption : reduction of the consumption of energy and water through the usage of specific motors, heat insulation, and the systematic usage of electro valves in the water circulation (closed loop control)

Established in 2003 by Sacha Kottmann, Komax became well-known on all 5 continents because of its extruders. At the beginning Komax has been specialized on extruders and coextruders of small diameter with smooth barrel (series Elipse) but soon they developed extruders from diameter 20 mm up to 90mm with the technology of grooved barrel sleeves (series Arc). Since the beginning of 2006, Komax offers complete extrusion lines for pipes and technical profiles. Originally Komax has been established in the ancient accommodations of the company Manurhin in Mulhouse. But very soon they were increasing and in 2008 Komax moved to Wittenheim, in the surrounding area of Mulhouse, where they established themselves in the ancient accommodations of roaster Warca. After long negotiations, Komax received the patents right for Helibar ® in 2010, which opened them the doors to the machines with a high flow volume. The series of the extruders were completed in the following years because of the modification of the technology Helibar ®

The series of the single screw extruders and coextruders from Komax consists of 3 series. Each series uses a different technology which depends on the barrel.

Series Elipse: Smooth or slightly grooved barrel
Series Arc: barrel in two parts with grooved sleeve
Series Helibar: monobloc barrel with long helical grooves

To ensure the durability and efficiency of our extruders, we only choose components with an excellent quality and we are particularly careful with the construction of our extruders.
