Packaged, quick-install 3.5" extruder runs strong and long with 100 hp DC drive, bi-metallic barrel, and flame-hardened, chrome-plated screws
April 2006 - Hard-working and affordable "answer" machines, Akron Milacron PAK 350 single-screw extruders combine quick "plug and play" installation with custom configuration to specific applications, then run long and strong with 100 hp DC drive, bi-metallic barrels, and flame-hardened, chrome-plated screws. Shown at NPE Booth #1702, the 3.5" 24:1 L/D PAK 350 extruder arrives fully assembled, pre-wired and tested for fast installation, dependable performance and easy maintenance. Broad choice of screws and gear box/torque selections allows performance-matching to a wide range of custom profile, pipe, tubing, sheet and coextrusion applications. Available in six machine sizes with 2" to 6" diameter screws, PAK family extruders provide a complete packaged solution to processing rigid and flexible PVC, PE, PP and many other materials.
The quick-install PAK extruder is ready to run after simply pulling power, connecting water and drain lines, and leveling.
Proven engineering and stout, quality construction provide high dependability. Rugged, reinforced frames maintain proper barrel alignment, minimizing screw and barrel wear. Long-life bimetallic barrels come complete with rupture disc, while a heavy-duty integral roller bearing extends service life.
The PAK 350's 100 hp DC drive provides a reducer rating of 220 hp at 125 rpm screw speed (AGMA II). A unique drive sleeve insert accepts nearly any style screw shank, speeding integration into existing operations.
Superior, user-friendly design allows easy access to barrels and heaters without removing the hopper, and a 4-bolt swing gate enables quick tooling changeover. Extruded aluminum heaters are provided for longer life, and ammeters monitor each heating zone for burnout. Digital instrumentation, including a melt temperature indicator, allows easy setting and readout capabilities. A large, cast-in water jacket in the feed throat provides efficient cooling.
Akron Milacron PAK extruders are ideal for efficient extrusion of custom shapes, pipe, sheet, automotive moldings, wiring harnesses, wire and cable jacketing, medical tubing and other health-care applications. The PAK series of single-screw extruders is backed by Milacron's total package of sound technical expertise, service and support.
All PAK 200, 250, 350, 450 and 600 extruders have undergone the most stringent, detailed inspection and testing. The larger PAK 450 (4.5 in. screw) and PAK 600 (6 in. screw) extruders are designed for compounding, sheet, profile, scrap reclaim and more rigorous processing operations. A low-boy model for blown film also is available.
