Guill Tool & Engineering Co. of West Warwick, R.I., said its Microbore Series 912 crosshead and in-line dies are designed for precise, very low-volume medical microtubing applications.
According to Guill Tool, the medical industry has had problems with weld lines in small tubing, caused by an uneven flow of polymer through the extrusion head or die. That can cause breaking, dead spots and weakness in the tubing.
Guill's Spiralflow material distribution systems eliminate those problems by achieving 95 percent or better concentricity and holding precise tolerances.
Microbore tooling offers Guill's patented Feather-Touch concentricity adjustment. An optional SealRight mechanism makes maintenance and cleaning easier and faster.
All Series 912 dies include a multiport Spiralflow splitter, with an optional Taperlock version.
