TWIN SCREW EXTRUDERS:

APEX SERIES

The APEX series includes both the CX and the RXT and is available in screw diameters ranging from 25 to 133mm. The APEX series design was based on extensive feedback from key compounders around the world. The feedback was consistent. Compounders asked for the highest levels of product quality and throughput at a competitive price...without sacrificing reliability, quality, and service.

The APEX series utilizes key process section components manufactured by Century Extrusion in the USA, a European high torque gearbox, and is assembled by Ruiya Extrusion in Nanjing, China. All key components and ancillary equipment are sourced from globally recognized leading suppliers.

Quality and Engineering standards for APEX series machines were established by Century Extrusion in the USA.

The APEX series delivers the industry’s best price per performance of any twin screw extruder available today.

APEX: CX SERIES

The CX Series was developed for high level users of twin screw extruders that are searching for the same level of throughput, quality and reliability at a reduced cost. The CX incorporates the following features:

  • Screw geometry based on western standards
  • High torque European gearbox and lubrication system
  • Century Extrusion high performance screws, barrels and shafts
  • Screw speeds up to 1200 RPM
  • Supported by CPM global service

APEX: RXT SERIES

The RXT Series was designed for users of economical twin screw extruders that are looking for advanced features, higher throughput, higher product quality and higher reliability/longer equipment life. The RXT incorporates the following features:
