Screw and Barrel Wear Measurement

This webinar will explain the procedures for conducting wear measurements on extruder screws and barrels which should be an integral part of your preventive maintenance program. Techniques and tooling are described for obtaining an accurate picture of the condition of your machine, critical for proactive replacement of components prior to failure. A review of wear tolerances will also be presented. This is a must-see webinar for all maintenance personnel involved with extrusion.

Understanding Extruder Barrel Metallurgy

This webinar will review the standardized test methods used for measuring abrasion and corrosion-resistance and explain how different alloy chemistries provide protection against abrasion and/or corrosion. The presentation will cover surface treatment and heat treatment options, through-hardened steels (wrought, cast and PM) and manufacturing methods for extruder barrels (solid, lined, HIP, cladding) along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. The presentation will explain the many choices available for high performance replacement barrels to reduce the cost per wear and increase component lifetime.
