Non-continuous tube extrusion
In a non-continuous tube extrusion process, so-called accumulator heads are used. HESTA offers a range of solutions for several areas of application and various machinery types.
In the automotive sector: For suppliers in the automotive sector, we manufacture accumulator heads with one or more strands. It is therefore possible, for example, to place several filler pipes for fuel tanks next to each other. The accumulator heads used have 1 to 3 layers.
For the packaging sector: In the packaging sector, accumulator heads are best for particularly long or heavy products.We therefore offer the possibility to produce long packages measuring up to 1000 mm from unstable materials such as polyamide, or stabilised PET materials. In part, the accumulator head technology is combined with so-called “shuttle machines”.
