Control cabinet construction for special machines and system automation

A year and a half ago we took over one of our control cabinet supplier and successfully integrated them into our company. Since then, the control cabinet construction with its 5 employees and its own control cabinet design has developed very well and is able to offer third parties various solutions for a wide range of applications. On the one hand, existing systems can be brought up to date in terms of control technology, and on the other hand, contract manufacturing of control cabinets and system controls can be carried out.

The perfect solution for your control cabinet tailor-made and manufactured in-house. 100% fit for your industrial systems! Control cabinets and control technology from Extrudex Engineering. From the circuit diagram with ELCAD / EPLAN P8 to equipping the control cabinet with high-quality components to documentation and testing of the control cabinet connections. With control cabinet construction from Extrudex Engineering, you receive the highest quality from a single source.

  • Consistent engineering through ELCAD / EPLAN P8
  • Custom-made products / series production
  • High-quality components from well-known manufacturers
  • Safety-related control
  • System testing according to DIN VDE -0701 / 0113 + 0100
  • Control cabinet builder as an extended workbench

Have we aroused interest? We look forward to receiving your inquiries!

 

Refurbishment of machines for greater sustainability

The video shows an Extrudex extrusion line desinged for the production of medical tubes made of W-PVC. The line dates from 2006 and was refurbished and brought up to standard 2024 in the Extrudex – factory for our customer.

This example demonstrates the sustainability of our solutions and long-term economic viability of Extrudex machines and extrusionlines.

If you are interested in bringing your existing machine technically up to date or renewing the machine control system, please contact us

 

PP - TPV extrusionline

EXTRUDEX extrusionline for the production of tubes made of PP - PPS and TPV. This movie presents a running EXTRUDEX extrusionline designed for the production of tubes developed for automotive purposes made of PP and PPS. Line is outlayed for mono-tubes made of PP in the range of 16,0 mm O.D. – 28,0 mm O.D. Line-speed at O.D. 19,0 mm is 15 m/min. At a later stage line can be extended by integration of a knittling machine to production of knittling tubes (TPV-innerlayer-TPV) up to 40,0 mm O.D.

The quality of tubes is constantly controlled by measuring units transmitting digital signals to electronically controlled vacuum-calibration bath type VB 300 ensuring state of the art process stability and excellent product quality. Complete line is controlled by control Extru command EC 400/19.

Extrusion line of medical tubes made of FEP, PFA and PVDF/and other.

This short film presents an Extrudex extrusion line designed for the production of medical tubes made of FEP, PFA and PVDF/and others with wallthicknesses of 0,15–0,75 mm and Outer Diameters up to 8 mm.

  • For all products critical diameter tolerances of +/-0,025 mm are achievable.
  • Extrudex extruder, type EN020-25D with grooved feeding zone with layout for a wide spectrum of different raw-materials with output from 2-7 kg/h and a maximum linespeed up to 100 m/min.
  • installed Vacuum-calibration bath with EVS (electronic vacuum system) controls Outer Diameter by using a frequency controlled vacuum-pump with venturi-system.
  • For best possible performance VB 300 is driven by digital data from Wallthickness and Diameter Measuring system integrated into line control.
  • This setup allows best in class quality production of medical tubings.

E.g.for FEP processing following process data can be realized:

Product-OD: 1,80mm +/-0,03 mm
Wallthickness: 0,30mm +/-0,01 mm
CpK: 1,67
Linespeed: 15-25 m/min

 

Extrusion line designed for the extrusion of tubes made of PUR; TPU; TPE.

The movie shows an Extrudex extrusion line designed for the extrusion of tubes made of PUR; TPU; TPE.

  • This protective hoses are required in the automotive industry with a wall thickness of 0.3-0.8 mm and outer diameters up to 32mm
  • The combination of an EG060-30D smooth tube extruder and a melt pump ensures an optimal mass discharge with a deviation of less than +/-1% of the setpoint.
  • The line is adaptable to a wide variety of plastics with a maximum throughput of 80-100 kg/h at a line speed of up to 80m/min.
  • The vacuum-calibration bath, type VB 300 with EVS, regulates digitally the vacuum to maintain the outer diameter in the required tolerances.
  • The vacuum-calibration bath with EVS grants a very high product quality by using a frequency-controlled vacuum pump and the Venturi system to the set point.

 

The following series of pictures shows our packaging and loading of our machines.

We proudly informe about our delivirey of 4 x Helibar ® HB 080-36 D and 4 x Helibar® HB 110-36 D extrusion units destinated to one of our important customers in North America. This machines are designed for the extrusion of 550 kg/h HDPE (HB 080-36 D) up to 1.000 kg/h HDPE (HB 110-36 D).

The reasons why our customer decided to take our patented Helibar® solutions are:

  • Significant lower energy-consumption with savings up to 35 % less kW/h/kg material compared to standard
  • Smaller screw & barrel sizes for same throughput compared to standard
  • Lower processing temperatures compared to standard
  • Fast change of colors
  • Worldwide technical support by Extrudex
  • Wide spectrum of different thermoplastic materials like HDPE, LDPE, PP, PC, PA, PET, PMMA, PS… can be processed on Helibar®


Haul-off and cutting unit BC034 and tilting table AT300 in medical execution

Those pictures show our haul-off and cutting unit BC034 and tilting table AT300 in medical execution. Both machines are designed for one of our famous German costumer producing medical devices. Both of them are made of stainless steel and meet the requirements of clean room production.

The BC034 is designed for haul-off and cutting of tubes made of different thermoplastic materials with OD from 0.5 mm up to 12.00 mm and is also suitable for soft tubes.


30th anniversary we could celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mr. Thomas Veiel.

Mr. Veiel joined our production on February 01, 1993 as mechanic. Since the beginning he convinced his superiors and colleagues by his reliability and exemplary work performance. In April 1998, Mr. Veiel passed the examination for master craftsman in precision mechanics with distinction. Today, Mr. Veiel is responsible for manufacturing and is the trainer of the industrial apprentices at Extrudex. We are looking forward to mastering the upcoming challenges together with Mr. Veiel and wish him continued happiness and good health.
