KraussMaffei Berstorff has developed a high-end extrusion line for making sealing profiles for the automotive industry and makers of other technical profiles.
The line is designed to run polypropylene and thermoplastic elastomers. The company used its experience in extrusion tools and production lines for sealing systems developed by Berstorff in Hanover, Germany, teamed with single-screw extruders made by KraussMaffei in Munich that had been used for tubing, window profiles and sheet extrusion.
Because of a modular design, the machine can be tailored to specific applications from conventional mono-extrusion to hybrid profile production lines with a flock-tape system or steel inserts.
The company's U.S. operation, KraussMaffei Corp., is in Florence, Ky.
