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

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.
