Mono Clamp System:

NFM’s exclusive designs offer manual or hydraulic clamps that provide quick and easy access to the die area. Optional single or double hinges are available for further ease of removal and switching of dies. Designed for extruder pressures up to 65 MPa (10,000psi) with single point adjustment of clamping force.

 Composite Thermal Barrier: 

For temperature sensitive materials, NFM offers thermal barrier plates constructed of composite materials, which minimize thermal transfer between the feed and processing barrels of the extruder. These barrier plates prevent premature melting of additives, and other temperature sensitive materials, which otherwise may cause bridging and freeze-off of the extruder feed throat.
