Gruber Clay and Wax Extruders automate and simplify the production of beads of tooling wax or tooling clay to use during mold setup to create smooth, radiused edge contours where two molds or mold sections join.
Gruber's Manually Operated Tooling Clay/Tooling Wax Bead Extruder provides a fast, convenient method of producing extruded beads (fillets) of tooling wax or tooling clay to create smooth, radiuses where two molds or mold edges join. The Manual Extruder is lower cost than the Pneumatically operated unit, but is also a great productivity enhancing, time-saving tool for mold shops that need to create radiuses on mold edges and joins.
The Manual Clay Extruder utilizes a Ratchet Tool to activate the system and create a bead of tooling clay or wax. This ratchet tool attaches to the spindle shown above and manually operated.
This unit is best for small shops with low production requirements, or for the most budget concious shops.
This unit utilizes electricity, which must be supplied to its installed location.
Applications for both extruders have historically been manufacturing facilities producing cultured marble, cultured onyx, cultured stone, solid surface, polymer concrete and more recently concrete casting and fabrication applications (call for more information).
Manually Operating Tooling Clay/Tooling Wax bead Extruder - #100005
Pneumatically operated Tooling Clay/Wax Extruder
For larger volume shops, or for shops that just prefer a more automated (pneumatically activated) push button operation - this Pneumatically actuated bead extruder is likely the best choice.
