Entek Extruders introduced a new extruder for the medical industry at the Society of Plastics Engineers' Annual Technical Conference, held in recently in San Francisco.
The E-Max 27-millimeter, twin-screw extruder sports a modular design that requires only one power connection. The heating and cooling systems, as well as the Allen-Bradley programmable-logic controller, are mounted under the extruder in water- and dust-resistant enclosures.
Like larger E-Max models, the 27mm extruder features an alternating-current, vector drive system. The controller is equipped with optional Ethernet connection for remote monitoring and troubleshooting.
Entek Extruders, a division of Entek Manufacturing Inc., is in Lebanon, Ore.
