Twin Lever Gate
Wed, 08/04/2004 - 8:16am
This twin lever gate can reduce die change time by 75% or more. The quick opening gate can be fitted on any size extruder and can be used in plastic, rubber, and food extrusion applications. Available on the company's new extruders, it can also be retrofitted on most brands of existing extruders. The unit features two clamshell halves mounted on levers, that when opened move the clamshell halves out from under the barrel so that resin being purged out of the barrel doesn't collect in the clamshells.
