EXTEND FEATURE






The STREAM-ALIGN™ WATER TROUGH SYSTEM™ now has an EXTEND feature designed specifically for the medical extrusion industry.
This feature provides a full 10 inches of travel moving the through away from the operator, giving the needed room to adjust, clean or change tooling with ease. 
All items mounted on the monorail stay aligned and then are easily brought back to the starting position with no misalignments.

FEATURES:

  • 10 inches of travel
  • Precision motorized action
  • Precise return to home position
  • Maintains precise alignment of roller, air wipe and laser during all movement
  •  

    THIS FEATURE IS KEY FOR:

     

  • Multi-lumen Extrusion -  You need to look at the tooling and move mandrels:

    1. Tooling can be easily adjusted when the trough section is out of the way
    2. Allows for direct / head on viewing and essential access to the die and mandrel
    3. Safer for extrusion staff – less risk of burns and damage to tooling
    4. Get the tube in spec faster with less frustration
  • Tooling Changes -  You need to remove a die and mandrel easily:

    1. Larger space to operate means a faster tooling change
    2. Less chance of damage and dropping do to more free access
    3. Reduced injury risk for burns and strains as no heavy equipment needs to be moved to get access to die and head
    4. Alignment of line effortlessly restored after tooling change
  •  

  • Machine Breakdown -  You need room to safely remove and clean hot parts:

    • No need to move equipment to break down heads and adapters
    • Breakdown process made safer
    • Reduce cycle time

  • Equipment Reconfiguration -  You need a system that accommodates fast equipment changes:

    • Accommodates changes to centerline position due to co-extrusion set up or a different die head used
    • No need to shift heavy extruders or downstream equipment to create alignment
    • Easily position trough and centerline where you need it
