The EX2 features a three-stage extrusion screw, designed to pressurize plastics during the extrusion process, assisting in diameter control and boosting the overall output. The mixing capability of the screw applies shear force between the polymer and the barrel wall. The EX2 also features extrusion speed control. The speed control board includes an automatic, variable voltage control module that is engineered to regulate the precise RPM of the screw as forces fluctuate in the extrusion process. When used with the Filabot Spooler, tolerances of +/-0.05 mm can be achieved at a rate of 2 lbs an hour.
