You might start by defining "PET extruder", plus whatever requirements you might have.

Start by defining the requirements.

CR4 doesn't do games of "20 Questions".

Talk to the people who make them!

It's very simple.

1. Decide what you want make out of PET resin.

2. Get a professional consultant and he will do the rest.

it's as simple as that.

With a lack of requirements, you may be better off choosing a PET dog, or PET cat.

The first thing is identify the use of your extrusion, and what requirements that will dictate....so you should explore the possibilities that are available, and then talk to some suppliers and get some spec sheets on materials you might use and extruders that will process these raw materials into the shape and size you will need...

Are you making film or injection molding or something entirely different? Are you looking for just an extruder or a complete line?
