At the heart of the machine is Alpine's patented X-Die.On each of the five extruders, the screw is direct-coupled with the drive shaft of a two-stage gearbox and is turned by a water-cooled, asynchronous AC motor.
"OEMs tasked with designing a highly optimised and tightly integrated machine or device will find KBM motors to be an excellent choice due to their unique design which inherently improves mechanical compliance, reduces parts count and improves performance through the use of powerful direct-coupled electro-magnetics with a light weight and compact form factor," the company said.
The machine, built on a single-piece cast machine bed, includes direct-coupled digital drives, which help deliver rapid traverse rates up to 60 m/min and acceleration up to 6 m/s sq.
