Guill's Series 819 EZ is specially engineered for the tiniest applications required by today’s medical applications.

A new low-volume, precision MediFlow extrusion die, the Series 819 EZ, is designed for use by OEMs and medical and industrial manufacturers for fast, easy cleaning. Advanced tubing products are sometimes as fine or even finer than that a single human hair, which means the residue left in the chamber can create unnecessary and unwanted downtime. The Series 819 EZ from Guill Tool & Engineering addresses these concerns with easy cleaning and fast reassembly of the tooling.

With the Series 819 EZ’s two-stage bolt system with patented FeatherTouch, adjustment is easy with excellent sealing capabilities, says the company. The removal of the die holder offers quick and total cleaning of the body and the diverters. After cleaning the die, reassembly is simple with only one part having to be replaced.

The Series 819 EZ is specially engineered for the tiniest applications required by today’s medical applications, including the latest minimally invasive arthroscopic surgical procedures. It has a minimum concentricity and wall thickness tolerances of just 0.0002 inch, and the die is able to extrude products at sizes from 0.005-0.250 inch.

“With Guill’s extrusion technology reaching new and greater finite precision, easier and faster cleaning is more important than ever before for users to avoid waste and eliminate the unnecessary downtime that can spoil OEM/medical makers’ exacting production,” says Bill Conley, technical sales manager for Guill.
