Guill Tool & Engineering has introduced the Series 2000 – a new generation of tooling for extruding plastic and rubber that provides significant cost and labor savings from reduced waste material. Outstanding product accuracy with consistent product flow – are keys to the success of this tooling compared with other tooling available on the market today.
The new Series 2000 tooling system offers users excellent material distribution and consistency, which is enhanced by a specially designed, patent-pending combined die and reservoir system – a first in the industry. With this ultra-precise tooling – material flow from the die to the compound is delivered in the exact amount required for each quadrant of the profile. In addition, a special co-extrusion capability enables the simultaneous extrusion of multi-materials.
By using computational analysis software, Guill has developed a new, more precise tooling system for polymer and rubber applications — from automotive to textiles.
According to Bill Conley, Guill’s sales manager, “With Guill’s advanced flow analysis software, the output of polymer is actually shaped long before it gets to the tip of the die. With this technology, the polymer cannot return to its original shape. We calculate the amount of required material throughput for your profile and design the polymer flow channels to meet these requirements. Once the tooling has been engineered, we run the design through our complete all-flow analysis software to ensure that our calculations are accurate.”
Manufacturers of profiles and seals in various shapes and sizes have long experienced polymer variations that have forced them to slow down the extrusion process – i.e., run at reduced production speeds – in order to accommodate an inconsistent material distribution flow.
The new Series 2000 was engineered to help resolve these problems — resulting in greater product consistency with reduced waste material and improved tolerance and accuracy at increased production speeds.
Today, Guill Tool also manufactures tips, dies, and breaker plates using state-of-the-art computerized CNC machining and EDM equipment. Engineering services using the latest CAD systems are available for custom designing extrusion tooling products: crossheads, tips, clamps, flanges, air wipes, forming rolls, spiderless inline dies, dies, swing gates, breaker plates, special equipment and sizing dies.
Guill Tool received ISO certification in 1995 — the first major extrusion tooling company worldwide to meet those international standards. The company has long been recognized as one of the leading established designers and manufacturers of custom extrusion tooling for all types of applications including: wire, cable, fiber optics, medical tube, wood composites, automotive tube, plastics compounding, custom applications, rubber, profile, industrial pipe, hose & tube, blow molding, food and packaging.
The company also encourages and provides education and training for the extrusion industry with plastic and aluminum model heads, fully illustrated operating manuals for step-by-step assembly and disassembly, training videotapes, as well as classes on the care and cleaning of extrusion tooling.
Founded in Rhode Island in 1962 by A. Roger Guillemette, the company was established as a job shop supplying tips, dies, crossheads and replacement parts to the wire and cable, plastics and rubber industries in New England and eventually across the US and Canada.
