Redesigned Multi-Layer Die for Precise Tubing
Guill Tool & Engineering’s latest generation of its Series 800 is a two- to- six-layer extrusion die designed to produce the highest quality, highest material-efficient tubing in sizes ranging from 1/8 in. to 6 in. OD tubing. Applications include automotive, medical, appliance and industrial.
The redesigned Series 800 is said to produce flawlessly smooth extrusion and layer definition when running fluropolymers and other materials for all multi-layer, multi-lumen medical tubing, as well as fuel line constructions, multi-layer PEX pipe, and drip-irrigation applications, among others. The Guill design further allows thin layer combinations of polymers and adhesives to 0.02 mm or less.
Under attack from fiber cement, PVC siding makers are exploring different technologies to shore up their future.
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.
If a little cooling is good, is a lot of cooling better?
