GL – Single Screw Extruder
Gearless (GL) single screw extruder series with high-torque drive concept
The gearless (GL) extruder series offers an alternative drive concept. A frequency-controlled, high-torque AC motor is used to drive the screw, with the screw and the motor’s output shaft forming a single line. The high-torque AC motor has a high degree of efficiency at all levels – even under partial load. Since the drives of the GL extrusion line operate without gears, all those energy losses caused by a gear transmission system, such as flange loss or heating, are also eliminated.
- Water-cooled, high-torque AC motor for low energy consumption
- Reduced number of drive components
- Compact design
