Global plastics processing machinery supplier Krauss Maffei Extrusion of Munich, Germany has developed an innovative range of 5-layer pipe pipe extrusion machines featuring a single screw extruder combination from their Performance series.
The KM-5L RKW 01-40 will be exhibited at the upcoming Chinaplas exhibition to be held in Shanghai from April 23-26. The machine on show will be combined with a single screw KME45-30 B/R extruder and two KME 3025 D/C co-extruders.
Krauss Maffei's internationally proven pipehead concept was developed to meet the increasing demand for manufacturers to produce complex, multilayer pipes. The pipehead has a modular design based on the spiral distributor principle: the spiral distributors are flow-optimised and have the lowest possible pressure loss, ensuring optimum pipe quality coupled with high production reliability.
Krauss Maffei will also hold an Open House at their production facilities in Haiyan China during the Chinaplas exhibition to educate customers about the economical production of PE pipes with diameters of up to 630mm on an operational extrusion line. A twin screw extruder ZE52 will also demonstrate efficient compounding.
