Battenfeld Cincinnati launching single-screw gearless extruders

Vienna-based extruder maker Battenfeld Cincinnati will launch the GL version of its solEX series of single-screw extruders.

The “GL” stands for gearless — a new drive system that does not use a gearbox. Instead, the high-torque motor more energy efficient than the standard motor-drive combination. Other benefits include low noise and vibration, and virtually no maintenance requirements, company officials said.

Getting rid of the gearbox also gives the GL a smaller footprint.
