TILE MAKING VPM-60TE PUG MILL
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION :
We love the Peter Pugger pug mills, they were the innovators of this type of equipment for the pottery industry and they continue to offer quality products that last.
Variable Speed Control now comes stock on the VPM-9 and VPM-20. To add variable speed control to the VPM-30 or the VPM-60 will cost $150. You can also add corrosion resistance on the 9 and 20 models call for details.
Based on the standard VPM-60, the VPM-60TE has incorporated the additional features to transform the Power Wedger into the most versatile tile making machine available:
Aggressive Stainless Steel Auger: The VPM-60TE auger design has been modified to accommodate the enormous backpressure generated as a result of extruding large amounts of clay through a small orifice (tile die/adapter).
Variable Speed Control: This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a "single potter studio". The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.
Upgraded 3HP Motor: In addition to the massive gear reduction the gearbox provides, an upgraded 3HP motor has been designed into the VPM-60TE to provide ample power. Runs on 240V Single Phase.
Tile Nozzle: The VPM-60TE has the ability to utilize the standard nozzle with a 3 1/2" diameter pug or a tile nozzle with a 10" wide x 2" tall opening. Nozzles can be switched out by simply removing the four bolts that secures the nozzle to the cone
Tile Nozzle Adjustable adapter: The tile nozzle adapter allows the operator to adjust the tile thickness and width by simply loosening and sliding the guide plates to the desired dimensions.
The machine is equipped with a safety stop feature so that people cannot operate the machine with the hopper door open.
Two year coverage on the whole machine; return the broken part, and it will be replaced or repaired* (owner pays shipping to manufacturer one way only).
*If, in the manufacturers' sole opinion, failure is due to mistreatment or lack of reasonable maintenance, nominal charge may be made. Motor and transmission manufacturer's usual warranty applies to those parts.
