QC<sup>3</sup>-43MM

  • Designed with Customer Input to Provide What Compounders Need and Want:
  • Quick Change, Quick Clean, and Quality Control
  • Quick Change: Allows for fast, easy screw-set changeovers. New self-alignment feature takes the worry out of installing the screws into couplings, and new design allows screws to only be installed one way – the correct way.   Guards come off quickly, and go back on the same way.  All necessary tools for changeover and maintenance are mounted at point-of-use on the extruder.
  • Quick Clean: New extruder frame design deflects dust and keeps machine clean under the hood, and Stainless Steel and powder-coated surfaces look great today and 10 years from now.  Optional device allows for fast, easy barrel cleaning.
  • Quality Control: All QC3™ twin-screw extruders are engineered and built at ENTEK’s headquarters in Lebanon, Oregon U.S.A. Top-quality components manufactured here in our shop give years of top-quality performance.
  • Better Compounding: Increased production rates (33% higher output shaft torque) with 200HP/1,200rpm motor and increased screw OD/ID for compounding the most challenging formulations.
  • Ease of Use: SMART controls feature enhanced graphics, recipe library, trending software, and web-based connectivity for remote troubleshooting.

Products Overview

ENTEK Extruders DivisionENTEK provides extrusion solutions worldwide. We pride ourselves on partnering with our customers to improve their processing capabilities. In addition to our state-of-the-art twin-screw extruders, we can provide turnkey manufacturing plant operations support, and complete extrusion systems with all upstream and downstream equipment. We also supply a full line of replacement wear parts (screws and barrels) for ENTEK and non-ENTEK extruders.

Complete Extrusion Systems

ENTEK provides complete extrusion solutions, taking responsibility for the entire production line. In addition to providing twin-screw extruders, ENTEK can also design, deliver and install your entire extrusion system, from raw materials in to finished products out.

Manufacturing Plants

ENTEK provides complete, turnkey engineering support to develop and operate highly efficient plants for a wide variety of processes and materials. Our highly-trained engineering department can assist with every stage of site selection, plant design, and construction.

Over 30 years ago, ENTEK began as a turnkey manufacturing plant in Lebanon, Oregon, producing highly-filled sheet for the automotive battery market.

Twin Screw Extruders

ENTEK’s twin-screw extruders are designed for maximum flexibility. Taking full advantage of co-rotating technology, ENTEK’s screw geometry, metallurgy and manufacturing discipline allow for industry leading material mixing and productivity in multiple areas of processing. The design of the extruder frame, number of barrel segments, control system hardware, high torque/high speed motor and gearbox combinations, and material feed options can be modified to meet or exceed your requirements.
