Flat die lip inserts
A new system of interchangeable lip inserts for flat dies speeds changeovers by 50% compared to replacing an entire lip assembly, according to Extrusion Dies (Chippewa Falls, WI).
The company's Advanced Lip Technology (ALT) modular system is desig-ned to work with its Fast Gap® automatic die gap adjustment system to help cast film and sheet producers meet just-in-time delivery demands. ALT is said to provide faster setups than conventional dies and quicker purging with gel-prone resins such as polyesters. Downtime is minimal too.
