AutoScreen™ Extrusion

image 001
image 002We invented the AutoScreen™ concept of automatic, continuous screenchanging with filter screens in the form of woven ribbons, and have manufactured and sold this device in large numbers worldwide. We've added new technologies and refinements during our many years of experience in the field of melt filtration.


image 003The AutoScreen™ is the first choice in the production of blown and cast film, sheet, profiles, pipe, tubing, fiber, filaments and other products that benefit from uninterrupted extrusion with steady process conditions. With no electric motors, hydraulics or pneumatics – the only moving part in the AutoScreen™ is the screen itself – our screenchangers are compact and can be easily installed with minimum line adjustment.

  • Fully automatic, continuous and uninterrupted extrusion.
  • Leak-proof one piece construction with zero air introduced into the melt.
  • AutoScreens™ can provide melt pressure control so you can operate your dies at their optimum extrusion pressure.
  • AutoScreens™ are energy efficient and operator and maintenance friendly:
    • image 004No hydraulics or pneumatics
    • No moving parts except for the screen itself
    • No breaker plates or screen packs to clean or replace
    • The screw can be pulled without removing the AutoScreen™
    • There are no operator requirements during screen changes
  • Autoscreens™ are compact and simple to install.
image 005We provide a special high tensile filter band for our AutoScreen™ units. We offer filtration levels from 90 to 400 microns in sizes ranging from 1-1/4" (30mm) to 8" (200mm).
