Our client manufactures a range of products on co-extrusion assets deployed in a number of factories.
However limitations in those assets were perceived to be prohibiting realisation of new products that built on the already successful product range.
Through detailed theoretical analysis of the root causes of the process limitations, a series of very low cost modifications to the die head were conceived.
Proof of principle testing on the client’s pilot line demonstrated the effectiveness of the modification, with results far exceeding original requirements or expectations with simple nozzle design changes.
Unlocking this enhanced extrusion capability has enabled a range of previously unachievable product variants to be realised.
