Extrude To Fill, LLC manufacturers machines and tooling for molding parts which displaces conventional injection molding with the introduction of a revolutionary technology.
The traditional injection molding process is little changed from the 1950s and relies on high pressures and the shearing of materials to generate frictional heat to melt materials being processed. To generate and contain these excessive pressures, the equipment and tooling require significant mass which leads to higher initial capital outlays and results in many undesirable consequences such as higher energy consumption and inconsistent processing controls.
Our technology significantly reduces these requirements and provides a means to produce high quality, consistent parts on demand even if you have little plastics experience.
X2F® machines cost less to purchase, less to tool, and less to operate, requiring less-skilled labor and less training. Plus, it operates on 110V or 208V single phase power and uses just 0.5 – 1.5 KW/HR. The traditional work center cost structure is radically transformed.
and highly-filled materials
Get uniform and optimum melt flow viscosity—without material degradation. X2F® uses electrically generated heat to directly heat materials to the precise recommended temperature in a static state, without shear inducing screw movements.
Uniform Part Density
pressure to all cavities
X2F® molding systems eliminate the massive pressure spike experienced during the Stage 1 injection cycle of the conventional process. Our patented technology builds to the desired pack-and-hold pressure and the dynamic feedback system provides real-time monitoring to ensure the target part pressure is achieved and held.
Molding on Demand
to meet changing demands
Stop compromising part production to accommodate the conventional molding machine! X2F®’s patented technology features static material preparation and this means no purging at start-up. With a 5 minute warm up the X2F machine molds parts continuously in competitive cycle times or when you want them, on demand!
