ECH 12-16 3D-web.jpg

Description

Our Crosshead ECH 12/16 main applications include insulation or jacketing of small and medium size conductors or cables.

Excellent concentricity can be achieved with this fixed centred head. The distributor of this head is conical shaped. An additional radial disk type distributor is used in case the head is configured to do also striping or skin extrusion. For single layer extrusion, a dummy distributor replaces the striping or skin extrusion distributor.

The entry for the auxiliary extruder is on top of the head. The high performance of the head is achieved by combining close tolerances on all parts and unique distributor geometry. The conical and radial distributors are designed in such a way that no special tools are required to install or remove them.

The ECH 12/16 can be equipped with extrusion tooling of several other crossheads. Dies from crosshead series 12/14 and 14/20 can be used without any adapter. Adapters are available for dies type 4/6 and wire-guides type 4/6 and 7/12.
