Vol. 16 #2, Dec. 1989 - Extruders

Extruders of different manufacture will often require different barrel temperature settings even though the screw designs are identical.
This is due to heater wattage, coolant flow rates, thermocouple locations, barrel dimensions, etc. Age of the extruder can also have an effect.
