LIT 106 - High speed extrusion line for thin wall pipes with drip tape system

T.H.E. high performance extrusion systems are designed to produce irrigation pipes fully automatic, with highest dripper inserting and punching frequency, perfect carbon black distribution as well as a high degree of inline quality control and automation. These achievements are possible due to the latest technologies in Laser punching, dripper sorting and state of the art process technologies.

Some of these lines are designed to produce at speeds of 250 m/min and an inserting frequency of 2500 drippers/minute. To achieve such performances, solutions were developed which combine mechanical and electronic features, requiring good technical knowledge, both in maintenance and operation. More than 20 patents were filed during this time. These lines are used by pipe producers with important market share and very high production volume.

*) depends on labyrinth design and wall thickness


Special features:

  • Simultaneous production of the labyrinth and the pipe
  • Wide range of labyrinths (0.5 0.75 1.0 1.5 l/h) can be produced
  • Quick and easy change of the mould for the labyrinth
  • The same labyrinth with 10cm water outlet spacing can be used for 20-30-40-50cm etc.
  • Outlet spacing by simple programation of the laser slitter for the adaptation of outlet slit distance
  • Process control with product recipies and reel label printer
  • Different inline quality checks (option)
  • Cooling water cleaning system (option)
