Choosing motor for extruder

12/04/2017 at 10:11

Hi PP army.

we are now building an extruder and like many posts pointed out we are on the choosing motor saga…

We use a 26 auger drill and a precision cut pipe with 3 mm external diameter.

Since there is not big need for high torque we plan to go with a 0.5 HP single phase with a reducer going down to 35 RPM.

Any ideas/proposal/thumbs up or down?

Best,
ALx

Hey! I have been searching the forum for this, and concluded that you could use a smaller motor (then a 2kW), I will also use a 0.4-0.5kW motor for my extruder.

Hey there ashrak,

cool. I will buy it today and will cost roughly 120-130 euros including the reducer…
Let’s stay in contact 🙂
