Book Description :

Extrusion is by far the most important and the oldest processing and shaping method for thermoplastic polymers. This process concerns almost all synthetic polymers, as well as elastomers or food materials. Single-screw extrusion is mainly used nowadays to manufacture finished goods or semi-finished products. More than 90 million tons of thermoplastics are therefore processed every year. Twin-screw extrusion may be divided into two systems: contra-rotating systems used within the context of PVC extrusion, for the manufacture of pipes or profiles; and co-rotating systems experiencing nowadays a very significant development, because of their significant adaptability and flexibility, which enables the manufacture of specific materials (polymer alloys, thermoplastic elastomers, filled polymers, nanocomposites). Extrusion is carried out by passing molten polymer through a tool called die that will give the product its final shape (films and sheets, rolled products, and electric cables). Thanks to the design of dies, we obtain at the output a product with controlled dimensions, uniform speeds and homogeneous temperatures. The book will discuss the same production types, but only in the case of coextrusion flows, i.e. multilayer stratified products. First of all, we will present in this book the physics of the mechanisms at stake, then propose more or less complex models in order to describe these mechanisms and then go forward in the interpretation of results and the control of condition flows.

Book Description :

With the growth of the extruded plastics industry, many products are produced by means of polymer extrusion. Many applications of the LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene) material are now widely used such as plastic pipes, electrical insulation, film blowing and general purpose use. In order to reduce the cost of products, energy and time consumed, quality improvement and reduction of variation have become very important issues. The research work presented in this thesis is concerned with an experimental study of the single screw polymer rod extrusion process. More specifically, it presents experimental design and analysis based on Taguchi methods. In addition to the study of basic statistical process control techniques and review of some previous work on the extrusion process, the main project activities and achievements described in the thesis include the following: Selection of an effective sampling frequency for the extrusion process; identifying significant factors affecting: the average extrudate diameter; the variation of extrudate diameter; and establishing the optimal operating conditions for the single screw polymer rod extrusion process.

Book Description :

Plastics extrusion is a high volume manufacturing process in which raw plastic material is melted and formed into a continuous profile. Extrusion produces items such as pipe/tubing, weather stripping, fence, deck railing, window frames, adhesive tape and wire insulation. There are fundamentally two different methods of extruding film, namely, below extrusion and slit die extrusion. The design and operation of the extruder up to the die is the same for both methods. The moulding process is one of the most important plastic processing operations. It is an important commercial process whereby a resinous polymeric compound is converted into useful finished articles. The origin of this process is dates back about a century to the invention of a plunger type machine. The mould has its own importance, which give the required shapes of the products. The vast growth of injection moulding is reflected dramatically in many types and sizes of equipment available today. Plastic moulding especially thermoplastic items may be produced by compression moulding methods, but since they are soft at the temperature involved, it is necessary to cool down the mould before they may be ejected. Injection moulding differs from compression moulding is that the plastic material is rendered fluid in a separate chamber or barrel, outside the mould is then forced into the mould cavity by external pressure. Plastic technology is one of the most vigorous manufacturing branches, characterised by new raw materials, changing requirements, and continuous development in processing methods. The injection moulding machines manufacturers plays an important part in the creation of injection moulding technology, process control, to essential mechanical engineering. Even though design is a specialized phase in engineering field, in tool and mould engineering it is totally divided into two wings as product design and tool and die design. This book basically deals with transport phenomena in polymer films, reinforcements for thermosets, miscellaneous thermoset processes, injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, basic principles of injection moulding, correct injection speed is necessary for filling the mould, plastic melt should not suffer degradation, the mould must be controlled for better quality product, logical consideration of moulding profile and material is important than standard setting guide lines, economical setting of the machine, proper maintenance of machine;, safety operations., preliminary checking for moulding, material, component, mould, machine, injection moulding technique, the various type of injection moulding machines, specifications, platen mounting of moulds, locating spigots, mould clamping, etc. The book covers manufacturing processes of extruded and moulded products with the various mould designs. This is very useful book for new entrepreneurs, technocrats, researchers, libraries etc.

Book Description :

Extrusion is the most fundamental method of processing of polymeric materials and it is involved in the production of commodities in diverse industrial sectors. Obviously, the thermal homogeneity of the process melt output presents a major challenge for high quality extruded products. However, the effective thermal monitoring and control still remains an issue despite the significant developments to the process over the last few decades. Therefore, the major aim of this book is to provide an extensive knowledge to the reader in the area of process thermal measurements (e.g. present thermal monitoring techniques, previous attempts on thermal monitoring, difficulties/challenges for accurate thermal measurements, areas on which further research should be carried out) in polymer extrusion. Moreover, this book will provide a good description on the basic process mechanisms in polymer extrusion while offering a large number of references for further reading of the interested parties. Basically, this book was written for the use of both industrial and academic users and hence both the theoretical and experimental information are presented for the better understanding of any reader.

All aspects of machine design with particular emphasis on screws and dies including coextrusion are discussed comprehensively. With computer modeling, the interactions between equipment and polymer are quantified. All aspects of equipment design and polymer features that control melt fracture, interfacial instabilities, gauge control, output and temperature, and cooling of blown and cast film processes are presented quantitatively. This methodology will highlight solutions in troubleshooting for optimum design and operation and the best available polymer and formulation choices. All polyethylene film applications in packaging, agriculture, lamination, and construction, consumer, industrial, and health care are reviewed and discussed in depth.
