What is extrude machine?

An extrusion machine is one equipment which force or pull unformed material through a shaped die to form designed shape. it is used to complete the extrusion process. The extrude machine are used mainly in the plastics, metals, and composite-forming industries. 


Basically , one extruder machine consist of tubular barrel, a revolving screw, and a ram or plunger within the barrel. Sometimes, an extruder machine also has a hopper at the top ,from which your raw material can be fed to the screw, ram, or plunger. while one die at the other end is used to create your ideal shape,either pellet,tape ,strip etc.


Extrusion machine is when a material inlcuding pellets, dry powder, rubber, plastic or even food is heated ,it would pushed through a die and get finished material . 

A die is essentially a mold which shapes your material as it is forced through the small opening to the other side. It’s one of the most common ways to produce sheets and strips of stock metal, plastic and rubber shapes.


There are many kinds of extrusion machines.  For example, plastic extruders are designed to shape plastic materials in pipe extrusion, profile extrusion, and sheet extrusion applications.


Depending on the material would be used for,  an extrusion machine may form the material cold or hot with some types of materials being completely melted prior to extrusion. When it come to extrusion technology, there are two basic types: hot and cold.  Take hot extrusion machines for example,it can create plastic, rubber, metal of raw materials that have been preheated. While cold extrusion machines do not have this function.  


And as its quantity of screw, we also have single and twin screw extrude machhine .The extrusion machines are both well producing sheet, pellets, PVC pipe, vinyl siding etc. 


Our extrude machine are widely used in many industries ,it is appliable for many material, such as 

Filler Masterbatch, Color Masterbatch, Additive Masterbatch, Biodegradable Plastic, Cable Compounding, Engineering Plastics Reinforcing (GF),

PVC Compounding, Polyolefin Compounding, Reacting Direct Extrusion, Thermoplastic Elastomers,

PET pelletizing and other plastic such as PE, XLPE, WPC.
