helix II - VSI mono- and multi-layer standard dies

battenfeld-cincinnati offers a large portfolio of pipe heads for mono- and multi-layer applications. The unique VSI dies from battenfeld-cincinnati come with a 2-step distributor concept consisting of a spiral mandrel for preliminary distribution and a lattice basket distributor for detail distribution. They yield high output rates with relatively small dimensions. Customers‘ wishes can also be fulfilled in the design of the pipe head.
