Hard core:

our processing units

Minimum wear costs through optimum wear protection. 

You are successful because you keep pushing the limits of what is possible. We accompany you with increased processing parameters for higher output, hard fillers and reinforcing agents for low raw material costs and better product properties as well as natural fibres and recycling material for environmental protection.

The requirements for wear protection are increasing. One more reason to choose WEBER quality.

 

    You have the choice

  • Standard: our standard solutions feature low purchasing costs and reliable wear protection.
  • Wear protection: our models with wear protection offer the highest level of protection for maximum application reliability.
  • Individual: on request, we supply individual solutions for your application, allowing you to benefit from the best possible wear behaviour and purchasing costs.

Perfect couples:

for the combination of different wear protection solutions, we attach  great importance to a “smooth” relationship.

High tech – made in Kronach

The latest system technology for unique quality

We have used our decades of experience with the tried and tested PTA armouring process to now set new standards with regard to process reliability and quality using state-of-the-art laser technology as well as optical and thermo-sensitive control technology.

Controlled heat input and targeted temperature guiding in the core and on the surface are the key to optimum layer quality. Perfect linking, low melting.

The processing of WPC materials very often leads to corrosive and abrasive wear patterns due to the material components. The use of bimetallic cylinders with TC wear protection layer and armouring of the screw profiles with a material containing vanadium carbide increases the service life of the processing unit many times over. It is the WEBER standard for WPC extruders today. TC and Cr coatings are used successfully particularly for increased corrosive action on flanks and screw root.

 

In the manufacturing of window profiles, the formulations are mainly divided into those for the Central European area and those for hot climates. These formulations have a substantially increased titanium dioxide content which leads to an increased wear rate. The use of processing units with wear protection has proven successful in these applications. Bimetallic cylinders with TC wear protection layer and screws with VC profile armouring are normally used for this.

 

The processing unit is under particular stress when fluoropolymers are used. The single screw extruders used are therefore equipped with a fully hardened screw and a special bimetallic cylinder.
