Rod and Plate

Complete Turn-Key Extrusion Lines for Rod & Plate

Extrusion of engineering polymers such as Polycarbonate, Polyurethane, Nylon, PEEK and Acetal requires an in-depth understanding of special processing methods.

The combination of high processing temperatures and volatile polymers means that the entire extrusion operation must be under complete control at all times.

Boston Matthews design and manufacture the complete extrusion line for the production of Rod(s) and Plate.

     



Semi-Finished Products

The ability to successfully extrude Acetal, PA, POM, PB, PE & PEEK Rod& Plate has made Boston Matthews the preferred machinery manufacturer to the world’s leading producers of Semi-Finished Products

A Complete Solution

Boston Matthews has designed and developed extrusion lines specifically for the production or Plate or Rod. We understand the processing requirements, expected outputs and quality required to successfully extrude Plate or Rods.

A complete single-source solution.

Void Free Extrusion

Technology developed by Boston Matthews ensure the quality of Rod & Plate produced is void free with the highest quality surface finish – ready for trouble free post extrusion operations.

Energy Efficient Production

Energy costs are very important and so Boston Matthews incorporates the latest technology to maintain the highest quality of Rod or Plate production as well as ensuring the line is economical to run.

Total Line Control

The SMART control system is colour touch-screen enables you to have total control over the entire extrusion process. Access to production data and security level setting places you in complete control over production and provides you with vital data.

Polymer Processing Expertise

Boston Matthews has over 50 years extrusion line design and manufacturing experience and has achieved many "firsts" during this time.

Boston Matthews are experienced with the polymers associated with the production of Rod & Plates to ensure the correct Screw Design and Die Head Technology is used to produce the highest quality at all times.

Rod & Plate Sawing

Integrated into the extrusion line is a powerful rod/plate saw to ensure the final rod or plate is accurately cut to the desired length ready for the post extrusion operations. Swarf removal systems and rod/plate handling systems are also available.
