Adapter Pipe for Extrusion Die Repair
Cliff Industrial offers a full service of extrusion die repair, such as the below adapter pipe for an extrusion die. Extruders have a bolt on a threaded adpater that attaches to the back of an extruder. A threaded rod runs through the adapter by turning the extruder on slowly. A nut or flange bloted to the opposite end of the thread rod prevents the rod from turning. As the extruder rotates, the threaded rod is slowly turns into the extruder, pushing the screw out. Each end of the adapter pipe had threads, but after years of use and over tightening, the threads stretched and would not turn properly. Cliff Industrial turned down the major O.D. of the threads to get it to start. After, it was threaded in the final position we welded the flanges on.
