The German extruder manufacturer Leistritz Extrusionstechnik has upgrades its popular ZSE MAXX series extruder based on end user feedback. The result is the ZSE 27 iMAXX featuring a new, more user-friendly design that was on display at the recent K Show.

At first glance, the ZSE 27 iMAXX is missing a control cabinet. It was eliminated by installing the whole extruder electrics including the water-cooled frequency converter into the base frame. Thus, the extruder not only saves space but also gets more mobile. "A further novelty is that we used a water-cooled Siemens motor," explains Fürst. "It is smaller, but supplies the same power."
Another feature is the closed dual supply water-circuit. Its inlet and outlet, as well as the COAX valves, are integrated into the supply frame. The closed water circulation system allows for reduced water consumption and is independent from water quality. "We inserted an inspection window to be able to monitor the safety coupling," says Fürst. "The inductive sensor can easily be exchanged via the screw joint underneath the window - without having to dissemble the whole motor."
