Rubber industry only had Hot Feed Extruders until 1950’s. Then came the Cold Feed Extruders and other variations as we see them today.
Rubber extruders have a varied field of application. So, when you come across a rubber profile, strip, hose, cable, wire, cord coating, tire tread, v-belt, tube, or blank remember that they are only a few handful of products manufactured using extrusion process.
Life today is mostly spent trying to catch up with latest developments. However, in the process the basics and fundamentals are sometimes overlooked. So, in this Knowledge On-The-Go Special Supplement, we bring to you a ‘collector’s edition’ on Extruders and Extrusion incorporating the fundamentals.
I hope you find this special supplement informative.
