Hose manufacturers can benefit from intelligent line control and closed-loop systems
Nuremberg, Germany – Troester is showcasing its latest advances in rubber extrusion technology, combined with intelligent line control and closed-loop systems at the DKT expo.
Over a decade ago, Troester developed an automatically centring crosshead, which has hose manufacturers worldwide. The unit is designed to deliver enhanced end-product quality, materials efficiencies, low set-up times and the “minimum possible“ product tolerances.
In Nuremberg, Troester is highlighting the next development steps, with the introduction of its automatically centring straight extruder head and double crosshead.
The double crosshead allows the production of two layers simultaneously, each centred by servo-hydraulic systems that operate independently.
According to the company, each gramme of material saved can sometimes lead to “drastically lower” production costs.
Troester customers can choose between automatically centring straight extruder heads, crossheads, and double crossheads to improve quality of production and of products.
The automatically centring extruder heads, it adds, can be used for existing extruders as a stand- alone version or in conjunction with Troester extruders within a whole system.
