The Kagayaki machine features 125,000-rpm spindle speed.
SmartBarrel can be installed when a new machine is purchased or when refurbishing a screw and barrel. Ports are drilled where the worst wear can be expected, and the plugs, machined from material similar to the barrel, are installed in the hole, protruding slightly from the interior surface. Final finishing of the barrel surface ensures that the plug is flush. Periodic measurement and correlation with process data let you know when the wear is making a serious impact on productivity and energy costs.-RN
