Extrusion Coating Dies, Internal Deckles reduce edge bead.

July 29, 2014

Extrusion coating dies and internal deckles let converters reduce edge bead with low melt strength polymers while maintaining coat weight uniformity. Dies with short lip lands – final portion of flow channel leading to die exit – help control gauge profile of coating. Secondary internal deckle blades consist of 3 independently adjustable components that can be used to fine-tune the edge profile of polymer as it exits. Small-diameter deckle rod, micro-rod, permits less lateral movement of melt. Read More

Thick Turret Insert Slitting Die minimizes waste.

June 6, 2014

Designed for D and E Stations, VERSADIE™ minimizes waste by punching closely to clamps and allows users to replace die inserts without replacing entire slitting die. Replaceable inserts accommodate lengths up to 4.560 in. for E stations and 3.560 in. for D stations. To withstand demanding punching operations, die body is made of S7 shock resistant tool steel, while die insert is manufactured from MPM82 tool steel. Mate SlugFree® design prevents slug pulling and damage to piece part and tooling. Read More

Multi-Layer Pipe Dies permit throughputs from 350-1,200 kg/h.

October 3, 2013

Respectively suitable for 32–200 mm and 110–400 mm pipe diameters, spider 200-3 and spider 400-3 deliver flexibility for processing foamed compounds or compounds with filler content as well as compounds with high proportion of regrind. Flow paths and tooling design optimize layer thickness distribution, while entire bandwidth of materials can be processed without any problems or need for adaptation due to middle layer distributor. Modular design enables conversion into 2-layer pipe die. Read More

Cast Film Die incorporates internal deckle.

September 24, 2013

With internal deckle, Contour™ Cast Film Die enables extrusion processors to achieve speed and precision without incurring downtime for changing product width. Unit has sculpted configuration that is smaller and tapered at ends, offsetting differences in die-body deflection across width of die that are caused by pressure of molten polymer that extruder continuously charges into manifold. With uniform die-body deflection, Contour Die can quickly be adjusted to achieve on-specification film.

Nano-Fiber Die produces fibers averaging 400 nm.

July 9, 2010

Designed to operate at extrusion pressures up to 1,500 psi with 64 orifices/in., laminated stainless steel melt-blown nano-fiber die produces less than 0.5 micron dia nano-fibers from polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PET), PBT, and other resins. Die can produce 400 nm fibers at basis weight of 0.10 g/sq-m and production rate of 1,200 m/min, and has capacity to block contaminants under 0.3 microns. Applications include surgical/medical devices and clean room HEPA filtration devices. Read More

Flexible Dies feature crack and chip resistant coatings.

December 2, 2009

Designed for die cutting thermal transfer label stock, Diamond coated flexible dies are resistant to corrosion. Black Diamond coatin on flexible dies reduces die lifting in small, tight corner die cutting applications, including die cutting stamps. Coatings create low friction which allows flexible dies to be used with aggressive adhesives without gumming up dies, facilitating flexible printing operations. Read More
