Bausano twin-screw extruders powered by Multidrive technology in the US and Canada

The Italian international leader in the design and manufacture of customized extrusion lines for processing of plastic materials, Bausano announced the introduction of its next generation lines of twin-screw plastic extruders in the US and Canadian markets. With world-renowned “made in Italy” quality and unrivaled technological innovation, Bausano two renewed product lines - MD Plus and MD Nextmover - are best suited for several types of extrusion, pipes, granules, wood plastic composites (WPC), profiles and materials used in the medical industry.

 

Bausano twin-screw extruder lines are noteworthy for their unique, patented Multidrive transmission system, a careful study of interpenetrating and counter-rotating screw geometry and the newest motor generations and tools for consumption analysis, all of which combine to deliver high levels of efficiency, durability, reliability and sustainability.

 

“Our extrusion lines are the result of advanced engineering that combines innovation with more than 70 years of know-how in plastic transformation processes. Our Multidrive system has increased the efficiency and the service life of our machinery, undoubtedly setting a new high standard in the extrusion industry for both. 

Our approach to design and development, production, assembly and testing steps ensures the highest technical and functional quality standards, and we are very excited to introduce our next generation lines of twin-screw extruders to the US and Canadian markets”, said Clemente Bausano, vice-president of Bausano.

 

Bausano Multidrive technology is the result of the company many years of research and experimentation. With a unique design that substantially reduces stress on motor shafts, gears and screws thanks to the tightening torque strain being distributed on two pairs of motors, Multidrive delivers higher power on screws equal to the power delivered to increase precision and reduce energy use. Compared to traditional systems, Multidrive innovative distribution of motion also reduces the likelihood of faults due to excessive stress on mechanical components, which ensures a longer average service life of the machine - motors are managed by a single static frequency converter, an instrument capable of ensuring constant rotation and perfect synchronism, without using any additional devices.

 

The MD Nextmover line features an all-new Digital Extruder Control 4.0 system with a capacitive, multitouch, panoramic screen. It performs continuous screening of the system by processing reports and graphs in real time to easily and precisely analyze extrusion parameters and consumption. MD Nextmover also includes an innovative 

Smart Energy System for contactless cylinder heating. By using an alternating electromagnetic field, the new system delivers a significant reduction in wear-and-tear while delivering energy savings of up to 35%.

 

Both twin-screw lines also feature special multi-stage thrust bearings, which are designed to triple the dynamic load and enable the extruders to handle high volumes of production. For smaller lines, Bausano has developed Multidrive 2x2, which features a single pair of motors to reduce overall dimensions while optimizing gearbox operation.
