To optimize and automate the process and to ensure a better quality of the extruded profile/tube, Colmec has created a new solution, the TGS extruder coupled with the CTEf (Conical Twin Feeder) unit. The TGS extruder is made with a new feeding area in which a conical screw unit is installed. The screws of the CTEf are able to receive the compound in any form of batch, strip or others and push it inside the extrusion screw at a constant and controlled pressure.
The advantages of this new extruder with conical screw feed are:
- Automatic feeding without operator supervision
- Control of the supply pressure
- Absence of air bubbles within the extruded profile/tube
- Better and consistent profile quality/extruded tube
For cleaning operations, the feeding unit is easily removable from the extruder.
