Extruder ideal for medical use

Issue: May 2018

Medical extruder US Extruders’ new compact, single-screw medical extruder can manufacture medical tubing and catheters, drug-infused polymer extrusions and micro tubing. It has swappable barrels available in 0.5-inch, 0.75-inch and 1-inch sizes, along with a servo drive that provides superior speed control. Featuring a wash-down design with stainless-steel exterior surfaces, it uses a medical version of the ProControl touch-screen control system by ProSystems Integration. The HMI control system stores and manages recipes, acquires and reports operational data and offers alarm analytics. Alarms can be categorized according to severity and set to record, signal or shut down. The electrical enclosures in the extruder’s integrated control cabinet serve as the machine base.

What’s new? The extruder, which US Extruders plans to make available later this year.

Benefits Clean-room suitability.
