The Plastic Extrusion Die
Plastic extrusion dies serve as the form for molten plastic. They create the shape or profile from the extruded plastic. Plastic extrusion dies are designed and built by our knowledgeable and experienced engineers to meet customer’s specifications. Standardized dies are also available. Dies are then machined out of metal materials to withstand the high temperatures of molten plastic.
Plastic extrusion dies may require occasional cleaning to maintain their integrity. Failing to properly maintain the die may result in impressions or imperfections on the extruded product surface and reduced dimensional accuracy of the extruded profile. To clean the extrusion die, flushing or purging may be used during operation or the die may be disassembled for manual cleaning.
A few methods for cleaning extrusion tools are:
- Chemical Cleaning
- Dry Ice Blasting
- Laser Cleaning
- Thermal Cleaning
- Water Jetting
