New Series’ Precision Engineering Ensures Closer Tolerances and Thinner Walls
Guill Tool & Engineering has extended its new 200 Series extrusion system to handle sizes of up to 20” in diameter and up to 2” wall size thicknesses.
The new 200 Series is a self-contained extrusion system weighing as much as 7,000 lbs., with a patent pending mounted track with a cart for easy handling and maintenance of the Series 200. A key benefit to users is that the cart system is engineered to tilt the die on-the-fly in order to compensate for the catenary (sagging) effect caused by gravity as the extrusion product exits the equipment.
This is an extremely large and heavy extrusion system. Yet it offers excellent labor-saving benefits for cable, pipe and tubing manufacturers that are required to produce large-walled tubing,” said Bill Conley, Guill Tool’s Technical Sales Manager.
“The self-contained track support system enables one person to easily disassemble, clean and re-assemble the system by sliding the modular plates in and out of position, with no lifts and no rigging equipment,” Conley concluded.
