Komax offers the HELICAL extruder family to all customers who are looking for maximum efficiency with significant energy savings and incredible production outputs, high technological content and the excellent quality of materials.
This technology has been developed by Komax for more than the last 10 years, to provide a higher material flow than versions with smooth cylinders and those with straight grooves with the same diameter.
Thanks to this significant increase in production output, we have been able to achieve several records in the form of energy saving.
The development of the extruder, in terms of the design of the screw and the cylinder, has been continuous and has allowed us to confirm this technology for the processing of the most commonly requested thermoplastic compounds present on the market such as PVC, PE (HDPE, MDPE, LDPE), PP, PU, PA, TPV… also including flame retardants such as HFFR and LSOH.
HELICAL model extruders are characterized by a helical groove along the entire length of the barrel.
