Strangpresse was formed to develop and commercialize fully controllable thermoplastic pellet-fed extruders with throughputs ranging from 20 to 150 lbs./hr. with extruder weights ranging from 55 to 156 lbs. serving the AM industry. Extruders are designed with superb melt quality over a full range of rpm/outputs, providing excellent control when moving from one axis to another, low fiber breakage, high flow, and rapid response times. Deployment from either a robotic arm or gantry crane affords exceptional unit mass-to-output ratio for inertia considerations. Design includes patents: Posi-Melt screw technology and Posi-Stop nozzle eliminating extrudiate dribbling, drooling, resulting in high quality near net-shape prints. Throughputs exceeding 500 lbs./hr. are in final development stage. Market segments being served include aerospace, aviation, automotive, marine, and industrial tooling, for molds, fixtures and dies. Our team has over 70 years of thermoplastic extrusion industry experience. Oak Ridge National Lab has licensed us to manufacture a multi-diameter orifice deposition nozzle which provides high quality/high resolution prints.
