Chicago, IL – June 15, 2000 – Guill Tool & Engineering Company of West Warwick, Rhode Island introduced its new model 815 Micro-Bore Crosshead to attendees of the NPE 2000 tradeshow. Representatives of the Medical and Fiber Optics industries were impressed with the many Guill features built into this crosshead.
The 815 heads are manufactured as Ultra-Low volume. This design eliminates scorching and stagnation by reducing material residence time in the crosshead. The 815 crosshead is currently available in single, co, and triple extrusion. Spiral flow designs are available and we also offer multi-layer configurations up to five layers. The quick change tooling we employ means minimal downtime during production. The 815 Micro-Bore Crosshead, along with all Guill designs, include our patented Flow Splitter. The Flow Splitter provides a reduced extrudate memory set, elimination of dead spots, and low material inventory.
Accuracy is the hallmark of the 815 Micro-Bore crosshead. Our Ultra-fine concentricity adjustment provides unmatched accuracy down to tenths of an inch. The many unique Guill features employed in this product allow wall tolerances as thin as .0002″.
