MIAMI - Plastec U.S.A. Inc. introduced a line of pipe extrusion equipment at the Pl sticos de las Americas exposition, held April 10-12 in Miami. Plastec, a distributor of extrusion and processing machinery in Latin America and the Carib-bean, said its private-label Eagle Extrusion Downstream Equip-ment is made under an exclusive agreement by Hyde Plastics Equipment of Joshua, Texas.
The line includes a vacuum tank, puller, saw and dump table. The vacuum tank holds the shape of extruded pipe while cooling the extruded plastic. The puller then moves the pipe to the saw where the pieces are then transferred to the dump table for loading on a pallet.
Ernesto J. Sosa, vice president and marketing manager, said Plastec already has sold some of the new Eagle equipment to customers in Latin America. The firm also plans to manufacture equipment for pipe, fencing and profile extrusion.
