Simplex Extrusion System

Simplex, 'sim.pleks', from Latin, Adjective, Noun, 1. Single, simple; not complex.

The Simplex Extrusion System is designed to meet medical extrusion specifications. The Simplex Extrusion System only requires: 1 power connection, 1 air connection, and the chiller connection! All subassemblies are mounted on a rigid structural aluminum frame, with adjustment.

The Simplex Extrusion System can literally hit your floor running with just the three utility connections! The Simplex System can be setup with a wide variety of options to cater to your specific needs: from Precision Vacuum Tanks or water baths, godet stations for filament draw, to tubing or sheet and various extruder sizes, even vertical and tri-extrusion!

Below is an example of a basic Simplex System layout:
