Extrusion tooling supplier Guill Tool & Engineering (West Warwick, RI) will highlight its Series 800 two- to six-layer extrusion tooling in booth W5549 at NPE2015. The systems are designed to produce high-quality tubing in outer diameters ranging from 1/8 to 6 in. for automotive, medical and industrial applications.

Guill’s new 800 Series achieves both the consistency and accuracy requirements of the automotive industry as well as the medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food sectors, which often specify a layered construction of tube, hose or pipe, according to the company.

The Series 800 tooling is suited for the extrusion of fluropolymer materials as well as non-fluropolymers and adhesives that work well when combined in layers measuring 0.02 mm thick or less with new head/die tubing end products. All of the inner layers are encapsulated to prevent contamination of the tubing.

“The six-layer’s operational advantages are the compact design with a short axial length," says Richard Guillemette, Guill Vice President. "This minimizes residence time, but also makes the parts lighter, and easier to handle and clean. This ensures that the material and color changes that may be required are done as quickly as possible.”

Other technical benefits of Guill’s Series 800 include:

  • patented spiral engineering for upstream thermal balancing, which creates an equal flow, resulting in extremely close tolerances for thin walls and multilayered, multifaceted products;?

  • split patent-pending single flow within the body of the die;

  • patented FeatherTouch design, which enables smooth, low-effort concentricity adjustment without choking off the upstream or compromising the clamping ?forces needed to create a proper seal;

  • deflectors that yield minimal chamber residence time for the extrusion material;

  • gumspace adjustment for optimal pressure.
