Electric motors for extrusion machines. The power of Kolmer

Materials can be given certain forms using a technique called ‘extrusion’. For example, when a plastic profile is made, plastic granules are heated and pushed through an extrusion mould under pressure. This requires a fairly large force, a force that electric motors for extrusion machines can provide. Then the plastic is cooled by water and Bob’s your uncle!

Extruders – Industry

Energy-efficient electric motors for extruders. The power of Kolmer Within your company or organisation, innovation, greater operational reliability, lower maintenance costs and energy efficiency are probably high on the agenda. Do you work with extruders or extrusion equipment? Then we, at Kolmer Electric Motors, have an energy-efficient solution for you: replacing the direct current (DC)…

For several applications

A good example of extrusion is a PVC tube. By gradually adding granules, the machine squeezes the PVC into the desired shape as it were. After cooling, the tube is ready. These tubes are produced in various diameters using extruders with electric motors.

Not only plastic can be extruded, but also metal and even food. Italian pastas are made on a large scale using this extrusion process. In the preparation of these pastas electric motors are used in the making of the dough. The dough will then be led to the extruders via a hopper, which is a large funnel. A cutter at the exit cuts the dough at the desired length and the end product is ready to be prepared for a meal.

Energy efficient extrusion process

Kolmer Electric Motors supplies electric motors for extrusion machines that can be used in various production processes, such as metal and plastic but also plastic foil. The electric motors used in this type of process run for many hours and are often of the high-power variety. In consultation with you, we would like to investigate a further optimisation of the machine and in which way an energy-efficient electric motor could make a difference. After all, energy is a very costly factor in the extrusion process.

Kolmer supplies electric motors of 315kW for extrusion machines for aluminium profiles, but also electric motors for the manufacture of spiral cords for the neat and orderly bundling of cables. Whatever your application, thanks to our large stock we can respond to any question with a tailor-made solution.

Our approach

As every organisation is unique and each application different, we always focus on your wishes and requirements where electric motors for extrusion machines are concerned and do so in close consultation with you. We not only supply standard electric motors for extruders but also design and produce custom-made motors in mutual consultation. Thanks to our knowledge, expertise and experience, we can design and develop solutions for a wide range of applications.

If desired, we can first send you a 3D model of our standard motor, so that you can judge for yourself whether this motor might be suitable for you or whether we need to come up with a tailor-made solution. Even when presented with a challenge for a not so obvious electric motor, we can’t wait to get started!
