This compact, two piece, front loading, fixed center crosshead was primarily designed for extruding profile and multiple conductor products.
The tip and die set, specifically designed for each product, is captured in the bore of the crosshead by a threaded cover. Plastic is introduced between the two plates and then split 180° before approaching a predetermined ramp and metering flow area of even proportions. This flow design ensures that the desired extrudate is stable and repeatable each time the job is run.
Fix Center Design: The tip and die plates are precision aligned and pinned together to form a fixed center tooling set.
Instant Changeover: Remove cover, existing tip and die set, install the tip and die set for the next job, replace cover.
