The open house will feature a running medical tubing extrusion line including American Kuhne's newest generation of compact modular extruders, a Guill Tool head, LaserLinc ID/OD/wall gauging, and a Conair Medline puller/cutter.
Registration for the open house is free. Accommodations are not included with registration but Kuhne has arranged for reduced rates at a local hotel. Processors attending the K show and staying elsewhere likely will either drive directly to the plant or take a train to nearby Siegburg and catch a taxi from there. From Düsseldorf there are connections about twice hourly, with the ride lasting between 40 minutes just over an hour, depending which train you take. For more information regarding transportation go to http://www.kuhne.de/ or contact Achim Raschke at Kuhne. Steve Maxson at American Kuhne also is a point of contact for the event.
During the open house the company will be running a tubing extrusion line including its newest generation of medical extruder. Kuhne says the modular design of this extruder is such that barrels and screws can be quickly changed for fast product changeover or to change the barrel/screw diameter and/or L/D. The die on this line will be a Guill Tool spiral-flow crosshead with feather touch concentricity adjustment. The extrusion line will be running with a LaserLinc ID/OD/Wall gauge and control system as well as Conair's MEDVAC precision vacuum sizer and Medline Taper Tube puller/cutter.
