Extruder solutions for manufacturers of PVC multiple-layer pipes


The problem:
Plastic industry under pressure

Long-lasting supply bottlenecks and increasing raw material prices put more and more pressure on the manufacturers of multiple-layer pipes made of PVC. In response, they often switch to other raw materials and low-cost fillers.

But this is the safe option in a downward spiral. Such short-term pseudo-solutions lead to reduced output, instable production and massive wear on the machine.


The solution:
IF-screw technology by WEBER

To stop the downward spiral and to be able to survive in the market, manufacturers of plastic pipes need a long-term and sustainable solution. The solution is the IF screw technology made by WEBER. The unique screw design for counter-directional twin-screw extruders offers:

  • Economical extrusion
  • Low raw material costs
  • Improved product quality

Manufacturing Execution System – Control production digitally and centrally

Modern production technology is only one step. To remain competitive in the long term and to grow stronger, the manufacturers of plastic pipes must rely on innovations in the entire production process. 

WEBER NEXXT365 was developed sepcifically for the plastics industry. The software solution simultaneously acts as MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and overriding line control. Using the web-based application, you can control the production process and centrally gather all pieces of production and machine data in one place – and you will always stay on top of things.
