COMPUPLAST® Virtual Extrusion Laboratory™ - Sheet Extrusion
The COMPUPLAST® Sheet Extrusion Package™ can be used to simulate the components of virtually any sheet extrusion line configuration including the production of coextruded sheet to help troubleshoot and optimize the process. It can be used to study the effect of changes in processing conditions, materials and equipment design.
The package can be used to
evaluate existing equipment or engineer
new designs. The results not only include
the flow distribution but also the shear
stresses that may result in material
stagnation inside the die and/or poor
surface quality at the die exit.
The package can be applied to both
mono-layer and coextrusion processes.
As such, problems like interfacial
instabilities can also be solved.
With the Sheet Extrusion Packages, the user can avoid many problems due to improper equipment design and also reduce the number of physical experiments when developing a new product.
