Extrusion

­

Sagittite was first developed by AIMS to answer the needs of the extrusion market, working closely with both the O.E.M. and end user sectors.

Sagittite quickly became renowned for solving wear and corrosion problems in diverse manufacturing applications.

Extruder by aims - Advanced Interactive Science Ltd

AIMS manufacture a range of barrels and screws for most makes of extruders using powder metallurgy and the HIP process.

Our work with both O.E.M.s and extruder users means we have the knowledge and experience to address your erosion, corrosion and wear issues. We can even extend the service life of OEM parts by up to seven times.

Our components are manufactured to GMP and have full traceability.

The corrosion and erosion generated in food applications have a detrimental effect on screws and barrel liners. Our range of HIP-produced powder metallurgy materials are able to address these issues to ensure high throughputs with consistent quality.

Ideal materials:

Sagittite 10 · Sagittite 20 · Sagittite 21

Pharmaceutical

The wear mechanisms of both corrosion and erosion have a damaging effect on screws and barrel liners to the detriment of the extruder’s performance. Our range of HIP-produced, Nickel-based materials are particularly suited to the corrosive and high wear nature of the raw materials encountered in this industry.

Ideal materials:

Sagittite 5 · Sagittite 10 · Sagittite 15

Petfoods

The corrosion and erosion generated in petfood applications have a detrimental effect on screws and barrel liners. Our range of HIP-produced powder metallurgy materials are able to address these issues to ensure longer service life at higher throughputs with consistent quality.

Ideal materials:

Sagittite 10 · Sagittite 20 · Sagittite 21

The increased use of fillers and additives, such as glass fibres and or corrosive compounds, in the extrusion process causes severe corrosion and erosion. This has a damaging effect on the screws and barrel liners to the detriment of the extruder’s performance.

Our range of HIP-produced powder metallurgy materials ensure longer service life at higher throughputs while retaining consistent product quality.

Ideal materials:

Sagittite 10 · Sagittite 15 · Sagittite 20 · Sagittite 21 · Sagittite 25

Powder Coatings

Over the last 18 years we have also gained the knowledge and experience to be able to considerably extend the service life of previously supplied parts.

Erosion from highly abrasive fillers and additives causes screws and barrel liners to wear, especially in the first mixing section. This wear leads to poor dispersion and reduced throughput. Our range of HIP-produced powder metallurgy materials are able to address these issues to ensure longer service life at higher throughputs while consistent product quality is maintained.

Ideal materials:

Sagittite 23 · Sagittite 24 · Sagittite 25
