Item # 1005, Vertical AKcel Extruders
Available from American Kuhne
American Kuhne was built on a culture that embraces customization. Cost effective customization not the "we don’t want to, but we’ll do it for a price" customization that is so common in our industry. Since our inception we have developed more new and innovative extruder designs than any other single screw extruder supplier including well established companies that have been in business for over 100 years.
When there is no floor space left and you need to add a co-extruder, going vertical is typically the only choice. Vertical extruders require special design considerations for safety, function, and maintenance. The engineers at American Kuhne have the experience to custom engineer vertical extruders to your exact requirements.
Vertical extruders can be mounted to the primary extruder base, to the floor or to the ceiling of your manufacturing facility. They can have a single vertical axis of movement or they can move in multiple axis.
Extruders 2.5" and larger can be mounted vertically to save valuable floor space. They can have mechanical height adjustment or electrically powered height adjustment.
Vertical co-extruders can be cantilevered to reach over obstacles and other machinery in order to properly connect to the process.
