A new compact die head with a spiral-mandrel distributor allows die changes without time-consuming recentering. Unicor GmbH in Hassfurt, Germany, will launch the new die at the K 2007 show in Dusseldorf this month. The dimensioning parts of the die set can be taken off the distributor head in one piece with six bolts, instead of being disassembled into a half-dozen separate components. The next die is also installed in one piece, aligned and ready to be used without re-centering. The new technology is applicable to die sizes from 250 to 600 mm ID and to easily purged materials like PE and PP. Tel: +49 (9521) 956 0 • www.unicor.de
