Large Pugmill

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am looking for a pugmill with a minimum nozzle diameter of 130 mm (5.1 inches).

The most popular brands like Shimpo and Venco etc. do not sell this kind of sizes.

Thanks!

Will the pug be a solid pug, or will you be using a die on the end? If you're using a die to extrude a particular shape, it's possible for the extrusion die width to be greater than the nozzle width, because the clay will squish out to fill the die.

A solid round extrusion.

Have you talked with any of the manufacturers to see if they have a method of expanding the nozzle? If you can't find a studio model that is big enough, you'd have to go to an industrial machine, which is a really big jump up in size and cost.
