Throughout my career, I have worked in industrial processes that operated on a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, 365 days per year schedule.

Quite often, the press follows those that produce large volumes of commodity products, and quite understandably so. However, I had the opportunity last week to meet with the folks at Bixby International in Newburyport, Massachusetts, USA, and I am very happy to see that specialty extrusion exists in such a big fashion.

As complicated as the extrusion process is, with all its nuances of equipment variations, materials, finished product requirements, ancillary equipment, etc., I have observed over the years that there are a core set of issues that affect every processor. I will touch on the subject of degradation as manifested by bubbles or voids in the finished product.

I met with a couple of old friends this week, Dr. Natti Rao, who was visiting New York from Germany, and John Beaumont, a classmate from UMASS-Lowell. It's always great to catch up with old friends, and even better when I can do that and talk about screw and die design modeling. Wait... did I just say that?
