Eliminate Degradation in Adaptor
What was the problem?
Material degradation in a Flat die producing PVC sheet!
The customer observed black lines on their PVC sheet and upon investigation, it was found that material was degrading in the transition region just after the breaker plate. The following image shows the degradation in the transition region.
The material would stagnate in this region and degrade over time. This problem was so severe that the customer had to stop the line, in order to clean this region, at the end of every shift!
