New Extrusion Head Provides Easy Cleaning, Tooling
Guill Tool introduces the Bullet, a new extrusion head with fixed center design, multi-port spiral flow design and gum space adjustment. The tool also includes an added feature of no fastening hardware, so cleaning and restart is easier and faster than any conventional head on the market currently, the company says. The Bullet allows quick tooling changes, as the tips remove from the back and the die removes from the front of the unit. The absence of fastening hardware eliminates leaking, as does the taper body and deflector design pioneered by Guill. High- and low-volume applications are suitable for this head and are accommodated with the simple, easy changing of just one component. A vacuum chamber and kit for assembly and disassembly are included with the unit. Optional keyed tooling capability offers machine designers and end users quick orientation, so the overall unit design enables faster disassembly, proper cleaning and restart, allowing the line to become more profitable.
