Geometric Transition Extrusions

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Fort Wayne, IN, offers geometric transition extrusions manufactured of high consistency rubber (HCR) silicone. HCR silicone’s unique green strength, the strength of rubber in its unvulcanized state, allows for highly complex geometries in continuous extrusion processes. Used with a geometric transition extrusion process, such as Trelleborg’s GeoTransTM, HCR extrusions can change cross-sections dramatically, opening up new possibilities in a wide range of medical devices, including wound drains, catheters, and hemodialysis tubing.

Extrusion Capabilities

Plastic tubing manufacturer NewAge® Industries, Southampton, PA, recently invested in new extrusion equipment to help ensure that the company continues to produce braid-reinforced plastic hose, engineered for fluid and gas transfer. The company replaced a few of its extruders to avoid a catastrophic breakdown and to stay current with machinery and software. The replacements were made before problems with the extruders could become commonplace and potentially lead to potential production and inventory problems.
