Edge-Bead Reduction Die for Coatings, Largest-Ever 'Nano' Feedblock

Edge-bead reduction (EBR) die allows frequent web width and formulation changes, while nanolayer feedblock produces stretch films with enhanced performance. 

Cloeren Incorporated. is showcasing the EBR V (edge bead reduction) die for extrusion-coating applications for the first time. The EBR V is the latest and most advanced design in its EBR series. With an installed base of more than 50 EBR V dies over the past five years, the new design has reliably demonstrated increased operational robustness over any other edge bead reduction die in the market, Cloeren says.

EBR dies are a key technology for the extrusion coating and lamination processes. These applications require great flexibility, specifically frequent web width and formulation changes. Being able to reliably minimize the volume of material at the edge bead with the EBR V deckle system is an essential advantage with economical and environmental positives, according to Cloeren.

Cloeren is also displaying world’s widest NanoLayer system, comprised of a 55-layer NanoLayer feedblock, paired with a 5435-mm Epoch III die. This state-of-the-art system will be producing the third-generation (G3) of NanoLayer stretch films. NanoLayer films have become a mainstay in the cast stretch film industry for enhanced performance in high-speed power pre-stretch applications. Second-generation NanoLayer stretch films have provided measurable reductions in shipping losses through their enhanced performance over conventional stretch films, and G3 films have been developed for further enhancements in packaging integrity.

Cloeren’s patented moebius-manifold die is also on display. The innovative internal geometry of this die has proven to be particularly suited for processing residence-time-sensitive polymers, including PVC formulations.

Mold System Runs Two Separate Molds Simultaneously

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: The Multi-Mold System from Canon Virginia Inc. shuttles molds in and out to run two separate tools in one press simultaneously. The company had it on display at NPE2018.
