KraussMaffei’s combination of two 90-32/P twin-screw extruders with a KMD 50 K/P as coextruder provides a compact, double-strand system for extruding core-technology window profiles, with throughput of over 900 kilograms an hour.

The configuration takes up floor space measuring just 2.5 m by 5.4 m.

To save space, the main switching cabinet for each unit stands at the end of the unit and only small switching cabinets with the necessary control zones and operator panels take up space near the die. Attaching the converters for the water-cooled AC motors above the gearbox also saves space.

The switching cabinet for the coextruder is mounted on rollers and can be moved aside to allow access to the main motor. The unit is not only mechanically flexible; the control system is also configured for extra flexibility, allowing the two main extruders to be controlled together or separately by a defined master.
