Guill Extrusion Head Features No Hardware

WEST WARWICK, RI | Guill Tool & Engineering announces The Bullet, a new extrusion head with fixed center design, multi-port spiral flow design, and gum space adjustment, plus the added feature of no fastening hardware, so cleaning and restart are said to be easy and fast.

Allows quick tooling changes, as the tips remove from the back and the die removes from the front of the unit. Company says the absence of fastening hardware eliminates leaking, as does the taper body and deflector design pioneered by company.

High- and low-volume applications are suitable for this head, and a family of crosshead designs is available, and users can specify the “caliber,” i.e., the maximum die ID.

A vacuum chamber and kit for assembly and disassembly are included with the unit. Optional keyed tooling capability reportedly 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.
