Cloeren Completes EMO Purchase
Austria's EMO to operate as Cloeren GmbH as sheet and cast film die and feedblock makers unite.
Extrusion die and feedblock manufacturer Cloeren Incorporated has completed its acquisition of Austrian die maker EMO. Cloeren, Orange, Texas, bought a 33% stake in EMO last year. Effective immediately EMO will operate as Cloeren GmbH.
“The acquisition of EMO provides Cloeren with a strategic footprint on the European continent. EMO provides Cloeren with a manufacturing, service and repair facility in Europe, and expands Cloeren’s offerings through the integration of EMO’s product lines in to its portfolio, says Cloeren CEO Peter Cloeren. “The extrusion die industry remains a unique business requiring distinctively skilled engineers, designers, and tool and die makers to produce extrusion tooling; and EMO has such a highly accomplished pool of talented craftsman that will contribute greatly to Cloeren quality products.
Cloeren is the world’s largest manufacturer of extrusion dies for sheet, cast film, and coatings.
Newer specialty slip masterbatches go beyond traditional capabilities to provide greater thermal stability, reliability, and ability to hold COF steady during laminating.
A troubleshooting timeline is essential to help you quickly identify problems and their causes. Here we'll describe such a timeline and how to use it to solve one common problem—melt fracture in tube and profile extrusion.
All things being equal, PET will outperform PBT mechanically and thermally. But the processor must dry the material properly and must understand the importance of mold temperature in achieving a degree of crystallinity that allows the natural advantages of the polymer to be realized.
