EXTRUDEX – extruder with guillotine and measuring unit

segmenting station including non-contact length measurement

EXTRUDEX is a manufacturer of extruders and cutting devices. EXTRUDEX extruders are mainly used in the automotive and medical technology sectors as well as in the cable industry. EXTRUDEX uses ELOVIS SLM systems for length testing and documentation following cutting devices. In the application shown here, PU pipes are manufactured.

Typical application data:

  • Measurement of PU-tube after cutting, before sorting / packaging
  • Production speeds: typically up to 15 pcs/sec or 120m/min
  • Cutting system without SLM system: only random sample inspection possible, accuracy: +/- 0.5mm/m
  • 100% measurement with non-contact length measurement SLM, typical accuracy: 0.1mm/m
  • Amortization: 2 months, integration of the measuring system into Weerth Anlagentechnik

Material examples:

  • PU-tube, precision tube
  • Diameter: from 6 mm to 40 mm
  • Length range: 50 mm x 400 mm
  • Tube-material: PU

EXTRUDEX machines, which are extended by non-contact length measurement:

  • Extruder and downstream equipment
  • Cutting machines and segmenting stations
  • Guillotines
  • Precision saws
  • Double rotary cutter
