What is an extruder?

An extruder is an essential machine in the manufacturing of plastic products and other materials. Its main function is to convert raw materials into final products with specific shapes. As it does? Through a process called extrusion.

Extrusion involves heating the material and forcing it through a die or mold to give it the desired shape. This is perfect for creating tubes, profiles, sheets, and more. From your PVC pipes to plastic containers, extrusion likely played a role in their production.

So, the next time you see plastic products with defined shapes, remember that an extruder played an important role in their creation!
