How it was solved?
"Cross Flow Minimization"!
The following image shows the optimized cross sections that had more “balanced” flow.
We analysed and balanced the die using the VEL™ Profile Die Module and the COMPUPLAST® Cross Flow Minimization Method™. The die cross-sections were modified so that the flow in each cross section of the die was balanced and the cross-flow were minimized. The optimization in the computer was much more efficient than the traditional “trial and error” method but, more importantly, the customer was able to achieve a production rate over 5 m/min. The die was also more robust - less sensitive to changes in process conditions.
Thanks to our VEL™ Profile Die Module and the COMPUPLAST® Cross Flow Minimization Method™, the customer was able to increase their production rate by over 500 % and meet their delivery deadlines.
