The new Compact MD series extruder from American Kuhne is designed for cleanroom and/or controlled environments.

Providing reduced machine width and reduced floor space, the units have low profile control panels that enables the operator’s unobstructed view across the clean room production area.

The ergonomically designed rotating operator control station can include simple discrete controls or the customer’s choice of three levels of AKcess touch screen control solutions.

The Compact series extruder is also available with an option to include the entire main frame and safety guards to be made entirely of stainless steel in place of standard painted steel. The Compact Series is offered in 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) to 1.75 inch (44 mm) sizes.

The Compact MD extruder is also available in an optional “Modular” variation where the barrel diameter and/or L/D can be quickly and easily changed to achieve different output ranges and/or simply to accelerate changeover and cleanout time.
