Applications

The extrusion process lends itself to many, diverse applications utilizing a broad range of materials. Useful for bulk or continuous production, extruders create objects of fixed cross-sectional profile, either simple or complex, that can be rolled, cut or pelletized to meet customer requirements. Since input materials or ingredients are mixed and formed using only compression and shear forces, brittle or difficult materials are easily handled and processed into finished products. Die and cutter design are critical for quality final results, shaping the material into required profiles, allowing for its behavior and flow under specific conditions, whilst imparting surface characteristics and finishes.

Common EXTRUSION APPLICATIONS

  • Laboratory

    Processing small batches for short runs, testing, education and training.

  • Purification and Filtration

    Extruding substrate blocks for the chemical cleaning of air and water.

  • Food

    Molding cooked and cold-formed consumables of all sizes, colors, shapes and textures.

  • Pet Food

    Manufacturing dry food or kibble, semi-moist pet food products and treats.

  • Polymer and Plastics

    Producing high-volumes of continuously formed items, from piping to film.
