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.”
