Evergreen Alpha Now Even More Compact

Press release date: July 29, 2014

On the market for over twelve years with more than 750 units sold: alpha – the standardized single screw extruder for technical profiles and small pipes. battenfeld-cincinnati, Bad Oeynhausen/Vienna, offers its best-selling machine model with several technical improvements from now on.

In contrast to their predecessor models, the revised alpha extruders are now equipped with a new, extremely compact drive system, which offers the benefit of small dimensions and substantially reduced oil requirements. Thanks to the smaller drive unit and a redesigned sub-structure, the extruder has also become even more space-saving.

Other improvements in the alpha extruders include the high-quality frequency converters built in for even more accurate regulation of screw speed and torque, and the temperature controllers. The latter stand out by their high precision, are equipped with a fast self-tuning function and have an integrated on/off function as well. The new alpha extruders are particularly user-friendly thanks to a warning light in traffic-light colors. The green light signals that the extruder is operating trouble-free, orange stands for conditions requiring the machine operator's attention, red indicates a need for immediate intervention.

The improvements cover all models of the standardized alpha single screw extruder range, which are available as cash-&-carry products worldwide at a uniform price and for delivery at short notice. All other features of these technologically advanced proc-essing machines have remained unchanged, so that they can also continue to be used as multi-purpose extruders or co-extruders.
They are available in the sizes alpha 45, 60 and 75 with either smooth or grooved feed zones.
