Types of Plastic Extrusion Process

The plastic extrusion process is broadly classified into seven different types depending upon the specific applications. (A) SHEET/FILM EXTRUSION In this extrusion process, the molten plastic material is extruded through a flat die. The cooling rolls are used to determine the thickness of sheet/film and its surface texture. The thickness of sheet can be obtained […]

Types of Plastic Extrusion

There are variations to the extrusion process depending upon what type of extrusion is being performed. Here is a look at the different types of extrusion, and the differences from the basic process for each. SHEET EXTRUSION Sheet extrusion, also known as film extrusion, is used for making plastic sheeting and films, and it generally […]

Plastic Extrusion Screw Design and Types of Extrusion Process

Plastics extrusion is a high-volume manufacturing process in which raw plastic is melted and formed into a continuous profile. Extrusion produces items such as pipe/tubing, weatherstripping, fencing, deck railings, window frames, plastic films and sheeting, thermoplastic coatings, and wire insulation. SCREW DESIGN: The design of screw is important for plastic processing. It has mainly three […]
