Bench top machine

This equipment has been designed for extruding small quantities of hot polymers, for the purpose of making small strands or fibres. The equipment is capable of high pressures and very fine and precise flow rates. Operated by a touch screen, the machine can be run via speed based extrusion or run via selected constant pressure extrusion.

The Extruder can extrude on any angle from the vertical plane to the horizontal plane.

A handy machine for research and fibre making of materials in the laboratory!

For more information, see specifications chart in Product Details.

Optional collection table and windshield (Adjustable)

Syringe Type Extruder MK3 / SE75

High-resolution control of the syringe and using a closed loop stepper motor, a resolution of 18um is comfortably achieved. This allows accurate control of syringe tubes as small as 3mm diameter and operating pressures up to 1100 Bar to be developed. With Syringe/Plunger sizes from 3mm to 12mm diameter meaning you can process materials batch volumes from as little as 0.1cc to 10cc.

(Hot Melt, Variable Temperature Max 300c – Run Via volume or Run Via pressure)
