Boston Matthews Inc. of Norwood, N.J., has introduced an extrusion line for making medical polystyrene pipette tubes.
The line extrudes, sizes, dries and accurately cuts the PS tubes without marking or shattering.
Direct-drive using an alternating current Vector motor ensures a clean, brushless operation and maximum transmission of power.
Sales director Simon Brookes called styrene extremely tricky to cut without causing damage. It is essential that the tubes be accurately cut to tolerance without any imperfections or swarf, as the tubes are subjected to several completely automated post-extrusion processes, he said.
