Troester: Technology for hose production and mixing

K 2019
Troester Hall 16 Stand F40

For more than 125 years, Troester GmbH & Co. KG, Hanover, Germany, has been developing and manufacturing innovative and reliable machines for the rubber industry. AT K 2019 process and manufacturing specialists will be on hand to discuss the latest developments with visitors at stand F40 in hall 16.

One of the products Troester will be presenting is a 90 mm compact extruder and a cross head that centres automatically for making hoses in superior quality. This machine has already gained a firm footing on the market and was the basis for the company’s latest development: the automatic centering double crosshead. According to Troester, the double crosshead allows the production of two layers simultaneously, each centred by servo-hydraulic systems that operate independently. Combined with a Sikora X-ray machine, the system automatically regulates the centricity of the layer(s).

To complete the portfolio for hose production equipment, a straight extruder head was developed which also centres automatically. From now on, customers can choose between automatically centering straight heads, crossheads and double crossheads to improve the quality of their production and products. Further benefits this new technology entails are material efficiencies, better product tolerances and quicker set-up times.

As a member of the Troester Group, X-Compound will also be on the stand to present its kneading technology for uninterrupted production of HFFR, PVC or XLPE compounds. The Swiss subsidiary specialises in planning and constructing machinery for processing plastics which involves steps such as conveying, melting, dispersing, mixing and degassing.
