SmartExtruder+

Sealant & Desiccant Application System

About SmartExtruder+

GED’s SmartExtruder+™ delivers the exact amount of sealant to the right location throughout the production shift. Its precision gear pump eliminates pressure spikes and reduces inconsistencies due to material viscosity, air pressure or ambient temperature. From easy set-up, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting with no downtimes, the extruder provides material savings and consistent high quality. Improvements to this edition of the GED Extruder include upgrades to pneumatic plumbing (for a better response time of the dispense valves) and the ability to adjust parameters (if one of the side heads is lagging or leading) to align the start/stops/skips. Over 15 years of improved hardware technology is incorporated in the new control platform, including new encoder based dispensing that eliminates the need for timers inside the controller, resulting in a much tighter dispense tolerance for starts/stops/skips. Apply sealant and desiccated matrix to within 0.1 g/ft. of desired thickness for improved quality and cost savings, and eliminate fluctuations in the material application from air pressure, material viscosity, or ambient temperature changes.
