System Clay Extruders

$535.00$6,675.00

The Bailey Clay Extruding “System” is designed to offer easy extruding for both large and small scale forms. The system concept refers to the fact that a series of different barrels will fit into a “common” drive frame. Each barrel is designed to cover a specific extrusion range, For instance, the 4” barrel will comfortably extrude small forms (such as handles, etc.), the 5” barrel will comfortably extrude medium size forms, the 9” barrel will comfortably extrude large tube forms, and the tile barrel will comfortably extrude both tiles and narrow rectangular shapes. This “overlapping” system approach reduces the overall cost for equipment since only one drive frame is required to plunge all system barrels.

Putting Your “System” Together

  1. Decide on either the Manual or Power Drive Frame
  2. Decide on which barrels you need. Review the extrusion range of each individual barrel. (We recommend the 4” & 9” system barrels).
  3. If you are doing large scale tubes, select the appropriate Cutting/Removing Fixture.
  4. Select the appropriate Die Kits or individual dies. We recommend the die kits for any school or beginning potter.

Please Read All The Information Carefully!

NOTE: Not all clay bodies are suitable for extruding.

Clay Extruder Drive Frames

Both Drive Frames come supplied with (2) lag bolts to mount the unit to any suitable wood beam or wall stud. All barrels and dies are ordered separately.

sys1combaa System 1 Clay Extruder: Manual Drive Frame
The System 1 is a hand powered drive frame. The heavy duty hand lever has been designed to provide maximum leverage for easy clay extruding. The entire plunging assembly pivots to the side to provide ample clearance for loading the barrel with clay. A plunger safety stop protects the tube brace from being accidentally rammed by the plunger.Mounting: The System 1 will mount to any structural wall, or the “Cutting/Removal Bracket.” The “Cutting/Removal Stand” cannot be used.System 1 Drive Frame

sys3combaa System 3 Clay Extruder: Power Drive Frame
This drive frame is the ultimate method of extruding clay. Power drive allows the operator the greatest amount of control in forming a shape. The clay extruding barrel can be instantly reloaded in a matter of seconds. Barrels can be interchanged with ease. The System 3 Clay Extruder provides a constant uninterrupted flow of clay for the entire plunge of the barrel. Both hands are always free to control the form. The System 3 Clay Extruder is powered by air. Most extruding will require a setting on the Power Drive Extruder regulator of about 90 to 100 lbs of pressure to extrude forms through the dies. This means the actual compressor should have an auto “on/off” setting on it’s regulator (built into the compressor) that supplies preferably about 85 (when it goes on) to 125 psi (when it goes off). You do not want a compressor that comes on lower than 80 lbs pressure. You can have a supply that goes up to 150 psi. The air flow is controlled by a foot pedal. This unit comes complete with pressure regulator, moisture trap, pressure gauge, and foot pedal.Mounting: System 3 Clay Extruder can be mounted to any structural wall or the Cutting/Removal Wall Bracket or Stand.System 3 Drive Frame

cutremovefixture Clay Extruder Cutting/Removal Fixtures
The Cutting/Removal Fixtures (Wall Bracket and Mobile Floor Stand) are extremely valuable components in completing the large scale extrusion process. The function of these fixtures is to cut and remove large scale clay extrusions accurately and effectively.How It Works
The clay extruder, the cutting guide, and the parting platform mount on the central tracking pole. You start by adjusting the clay extruder to a comfortable height. Next you position the cutting guide approximately 6” below the die plate. Next you place a bat on top of the parting platform. The first section of clay extrusion is trimmed at the cutting guide to provide a square base. The clay extrusion is continued down until it touches the bat. A cut is then made at the cutting guide. At this point, the parting platform is pivoted to a lower position to provide a gap between the upper and lower clay extrusion. The finished form can now be removed without obstruction.The Cutting/Removal Wall Bracket can be used with any of the extruders. The Cutting/Removal Mobile Floor Stand can only be used with the System 3 clay extruder. 28″ Wide x 28″ Deep x 85″ High.Note: The photo on the left does not depict all the hardware that comes with either fixture.
