I-Beam Boxed Frame
Our Extruders 2” and up are built from a boxed I-Beam frame design with 6 or more adjustable anti-vibration pad mounts. This design allows the extruder to be easily located on uneven or heaving concrete, and operate with minimal initial setup required.
Gear Box Implementation
Our extruders are constructed with overbuilt name brand gear boxes with as much as 2:1 Service factor with a 2.5 Safety Factor. For example our 3 ½” extruder with a 75Hp BlueMax motor, and the gear box we pair with it is 150Hp continuous use rated gear box with a safety factor of 1.26 that would allow a shock load of 189Hp to sprung on it.
All of our extruders are outfitted with ABB drives. These drives have proven themselves to be very reliable, easy to setup and easy to maintain. There is wide support for ABB drive across North America should one of our customers require assistance.
