WEST GROVE, PA. (June 25, 12:45 p.m. ET) — Miller Edge Inc. recently installed a custom American Kuhne Inc. extruder that can be used for in-line or co-extrusion positioning.
Miller Edge makes stopping devices for motor-driven doors and gates, as well as safe-guarding products for machines or perimeters. Their website said that their products are also used in automated manufacturing plants.
“The machine arrived on time and the start-up was very easy and fast, we had the machine in full production within two days of it arriving at the plant,” said Kris Tejeswi, plastics engineer at Miller Edge, in a news release.
The West Grove-based company did not return calls seeking further information.
The American Kuhne extruder can pivot 45 degrees about a fixed point, and comes with specially designed wheels and a pivot mechanism. The feature allows Miller Edge to position the extruder depending on the use and allows greater flexibility.
American Kuhne tested the extruder at its Ashaway, R.I., location prior to shipment to allow full drive calibration and programming, tuning of temperature controllers and confirmation of screw performance.
