UBM Boston is New England’s largest gathering of Medical, Manufacturing, Electronics, and Plastics engineers, product developers, designers, and executives. Guill had the pleasure of displaying a booth at UBM Boston this year. Over the course of the two days the conference takes place on (this year it was April 13th and 14th) it was a pleasure to see the people who had gathered and the innovations they each brought to the table.
Here are some pictures taken from our Twitter throughout the event. Follow us there for more up to date news and coverage from similar events.

Guill had the pleasure of running a booth at this years Medical Design & Manufacturing West at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The Guill booth featured extrusion tooling to build both multi-lumen and multi-layer medical tubing as well as the Bullet II.
This convention showcases the most up to date, cutting edge technology and its medical uses. We really enjoyed the opportunity to talk with the press, colleagues, and other interested individuals.

In December of 2015 Guill Tool debuted Series 824, a co-extrusion crosshead designed for irrigation tubing with an emitter tool. This new stainless steel crosshead features balanced flow design with spiral technology that improves flow characteristics at all extruder speeds. Dual feed ports provide concentric compound flow, while the splits flow from one extruder to feed the inside and outside layers via a manifold assembly. Series 824 is adaptable to all popular extruders currently on the market. Quick-change tooling and a toolkit for disassembly and re-assembly are provided with the unit.
Bill Conley, sales manager for Guill, comments, “On this project, the customer challenged us with an application that required precise placement and bonding of preformed emitters within the extruded tubing without melting them in the crosshead.”
For more information view our news post on Series 824 at Guill.com here.
This past November Guill Tool introduced Series 725, a co-extrusion crosshead design for tray cable applications in low-volume, adjustable center work on PVC over PVC. This series was developed by Guill Engineering and a customer, to convert a production line from a Tandem line with two heads a distance apart into a co-extrusion line with a single head applying both layers of PVC in a single operation. The efficiency and improved profit potential from such a configuration is substantial.
Additional features of this new crosshead include multi-port spiral flow, easy disassembly and restart, positive seals for leak elimination, adaptable to all extruder brands, maximum thru-core of 1.750″ and maximum die ID of 2.000″, a fixed first layer and second adjustable layer, the patented Guill Feather Touch concentricity adjustment, vacuum port and the ability to accept two extruders from the same side via the heated manifold assembly.
Like all our products, Series 725 comes with a tool kit and detailed operator’s instruction manual.
