alpha - The plug&play bestseller

The plug&play model for standard applications

Our global bestseller, the alpha basic/plus single screw extruder, has been conceived and developed especially for the extrusion of technical profiles and small pipes. Application areas are for example utility profiles, as well as the furniture, automotive, building and electronics industries. The following materials can be processed with alpha basic/plus: PE, PP, ABS, ABS/PC, PS, PMMA, TPE as well as soft and rigid PVC.

  • Wide range of performance classes
  • Extremely compact with minimal footprint
  • Direct drive with high torque, brushless, maintenance-free AC motor
  • Complete lines for pipe and profile
  • Excellent price-performance ratio
  • UL versions for the US market
  • Choice of different extruder models available from stock with screw diameters of 45, 60 and 75 mm
  • Processing units in 25 L/D with smooth and in 28 or 30 L/D with grooved feed section
  • Outputs from 10 - 300 kg/h
  • High-quality machine components from leading European suppliers
  • Analogue synchronization (0-10V signal) with relais control (alpha basic) or digital control (alpha plus)

Model with relay control that has been proven for many years.


  • SecuRe control with high-precision PID temperature controllers
  • Vacon 100 frequency converter with integrated start/stop function for the main motor
  • Overheating protection for heating zones (> 300 °C)
  • Overvoltage protection for control cabinet
  • X6 standard I/O interface (external start/stop function, speed reduction, ...)
  • 3-color LED alarm light

Available options:

  • PLc melt pressure sensor (CE-declaration) instead of burst disc
  • Melt temperature sensor
  • UPS (uninterruptable power supply) for the control unit
  • Gravimetric interface (binary screw speed set)
  • Syn interface SecuRe (for two or more SecuRe extruders)
  • Euromap 27 (CAN-slave)

Based on the same machine design as the alpha basic, the alpha plus is equipped with a touch screen control. This offers additional functions:

  • BCcompact with 12“ touch screen
  • Euromap 27 (CAN-master or CAN-slave and/or downstream)
  • BCA-interface 1 (downstream)
  • leanEX-interface (downstream)

Available software options with the BCcompact control:

  • Parameter storage
  • Funktion heat-up timer
  • Saw cutting program
