Former produces almost all types of barrels used in injection molding or extrusion processes. While the injection barrels must be resistant to high injection pressure, extrusion barrels may require the use of degassing type barrels to take volatiles out and the use of grooved feeding systems for difficult-to-feed materials. Our designs meet these requirements, correct material selection and the proper hardening, coating technics will provide optimum lifetime efficiency.
Feeding grooves are used in most of today’s extrusion applications. With the use of “Soft” or “Hard” feeding grooves, benefits such as higher throughput, stable and higher mold pressure generation and more efficient feeding of high viscosity materials are obtained. FORMER produces grooved feeding barrels with various channel profiles and in straight or spiral forms.
