Project of the month June 2018:Complete coextrusion line for the production of medical tubes

Overview ME 30/5x25D + ME20x25D in coextrusion version with downstream

The task:

Extrusion line for use in a clean room consisting of three single-screw extruders, one calibration unit, online measuring and testing equipment and a haul-off / cutting unit for the production of over one hundred different mono- and coextruded tubes made from 26 different thermoplastic materials.

The solution:

1.) Three mobile single screw extruders, Ø45, Ø30 and Ø20mm, the entire electrical system of which is centrally located in two fixed control cabinets. These cabinets also accommodate the electrical system of the entire downstream line composed of a cooling section, online measuring and testing technology and a haul-off with a built-on rotary cutter.
