Guill Tool, a global manufacturer in extrusion tooling technology, announces a new design for its high-production rotary models, both inline and crosshead style. A 2X increase in speed, with models running to 1000 RPM depending on the application, are now available in the Guill line of patented rotating tip & die designs. By rotating the tooling in relation to the material flow, a rotary head increases the wall strength of an extrusion, thereby allowing a thinner wall with less material and the corresponding cost savings for the user. Typical applications for rotary heads include medical and multi-lumen tubing plus various high-end extrusions with interlocking layer or multiple striping requirements.
Features offered on these new rotating extrusion dies include counter-rotating tip & die, co-rotating tip & die, rotating die with conventional tip, rotating tip with conventional die, crosshead or inline, multi-layer, striping, certain profiles and optional quick-change cartridges that minimize cleaning downtime.
By using rotary dies, extruders can realize a cost savings due to the elimination of secondary processes, cosmetic enhancement of the end product with the elimination of weld or parting lines, plus reduction or complete elimination of ovality.
Guill Tool offers its new high-speed rotary models as turnkey packages, complete with die cart, tools and all accessories for installation and maintenance.
