Development of an Extrusion for the Continuous Pre-Cross-Linking of Solid Silicone Rubber

The blow molding of solid silicone rubbers is possible with a defined pre-cross-linking of the material. The pre-cross-linking allows the extrusion of the parison without strong drawdown and the forming with compressed air into a hollow body. The objective of this contribution is the development of an extrusion die for the continuous pre-cross-linking of silicone […] more...

The melt filter for film extrusion and PET processing (Reference: Ettlinger)

Melt Filters

Maximum filtration, minimal melt loss

The continuously operating ERF and ECO melt filters from Ettlinger, Königsbrunn, can be incorporated into almost any extrusion line. At the heart of both filter types is a rotating filter drum with conical perforations through which the contaminated melt flows from the outside to the inside. more...

Energy Efficiency of Rubber Extrusion

Potentials and limits of rubber extruders with high rotational speed screws

The increase of rubber extrusion lines efficiencies, while, at the same time, ensuring high product quality, can be achieved by optimizing energy efficiencies, or by stepping up throughputs by means of increasing the rotational speed of the screw. more...
