Coating Die Cuts Downtime

A new generation of the EPC extrusion coating die is said to increase productivity by simplifying changes in product width and eliminating much of the deckle disassembly involved in cleaning and maintenance. An extensive enhancement of the deckle system increases the ease and repeatability of width adjustments, simplifies cleanout of carbonized polymer buildup in the die, and makes possible rapid removal of the entire deckle assembly for a split and clean or complete opening of the die for maintenance. A more robust support structure and drive mechanism for the deckle ensures a more stable and repeatable width-adjustment system.
