Since Extrusion Dies Industries LLC, Chippewa Falls, Wis., bought Liberty Coating Equipment in Sussex, Wis., in February, EDI's larger machining capacity allows Liberty to quote its specialized slot dies up to 30 ft wide, vs. 80 in. before. EDI also builds slot dies, but with adjustable lips, which don't apply as thin a coating as a fi xed slot. Liberty fi xed dies coat down to 1 micron, where EDI's fl exible-lip slot dies coat down to 10 microns. Liberty dies alter the gap by changing a shim in the die (hinging for shim changing or cleaning is an option). Fixed slot dies extrude super-thin liquid coatings under very low pressure (10 to 30 psi) onto sheet and fi lms, such as PC sheet for LED and plasma screens or optical coatings onto window fi lm. EDI will use Liberty's method of moving test modules to a customer to run coating trials using a customer's own equipment and liquids. Tel: (715) 726-1201 . www.extrusiondies.com
