Equipment in this category is used to force material through an opening in a perforated plate or die to create a product with a specific cross-section. The resulting "extrudate" is then cut to a specified size. Extruders typically consist of a large, rotating screw that fits tightly within a stationary barrel, at the end of which is a die that ensures the product's uniform shape. Examples of extruded food products include pasta, breakfast cereals and some snack foods. Extruding equipment can also be used to process metal, ceramic, and other materials.
