Milacron India inaugurated its Extrusion Open House at the Ahmedabad facility recently. It included the demonstration of an extrusion line in live production of cPVC pipes. At the event, Milacron received two orders for India-built pipe extrusion systems from local customers. The orders were for complete systems and included extruder, controller, die/head, cooling/sizing tank, puller, cutting/saw and accumulation table. The first system will ship before the end of 2015 and the second system is scheduled to ship in Q1 2016. Speaking at the event, Brian Marston, VP & GM, Global Extrusion Business, stated, “The conical twin screw counter rotating extruder producing cPVC pipe is one of our most popular extrusion technologies and we anticipate a strong demand for these machines in India and surrounding regions”. The three-day event catered to the needs of India’s growing construction industry. The extruder produced ¾ inch cPVC pipes and an injection moulding machine cPVC line Servo 150 was engaged in the production of cPVC fittings.
