Bausano Introduces Next Gen Twin-screw Extruders

Bausano, Turin, Italy, a designer and producer of customized extrusion lines for the transformation of plastic materials, has announced the introduction of its next generation lines of twin-screw plastic extruders in the US and Canadian markets. With “Made in Italy” quality and technological innovation, Bausano’s two renewed product lines – MD Plus and MD Nextmover – are best suited for several types of extrusion, pipes, granules, wood plastic composites (WPC), profiles and materials used in the medical industry.

Bausano’s twin-screw extruder lines are noteworthy for their unique, patented Multidrive transmission system, a careful study of interpenetrating and counter-rotating screw geometry and the newest motor generations and tools for consumption analysis, all of which combine to deliver high levels of efficiency, durability, reliability and sustainability.

Bausano’s Multidrive technology is the result of the company’s many years of research and experimentation. With a unique design that substantially reduces stress on motor shafts, gears and screws, thanks to the tightening torque strain being distributed on two pairs of motors, Multidrive delivers higher power on screws equal to the power delivered to increase precision and reduce energy use. Compared to traditional systems, Multidrive’s innovative distribution of motion also reduces the likelihood of faults due to excessive stress on mechanical components, which ensures a longer average service life of the machine – motors are managed by a single static frequency converter, an instrument capable of ensuring constant rotation and perfect synchronism, without using any additional devices.

The MD Nextmover line features an all-new Digital Extruder Control 4.0 system with a capacitive, multitouch, panoramic screen. It performs continuous screening of the system by processing reports and graphs in real time to easily and precisely analyze extrusion parameters and consumption at each stage of the production cycle. MD Nextmover also includes an innovative Smart Energy System for contactless cylinder heating. By using an alternating electromagnetic field, the new system delivers a significant reduction in wear-and-tear while delivering energy savings of up to 35%.

Both twin-screw lines also feature special multi-stage thrust bearings, which are designed to triple the dynamic load and enable the extruders to handle high volumes of production. For smaller lines, Bausano has developed Multidrive 2×2, which features a single pair of motors to reduce overall dimensions while optimizing gearbox operation.
