Meeting the challenges of thin-gauge sheet extrusion
Fri, Jan 31st 2014 12:00 pm
Sheet extrusion is characterised by the production of double-polished sheet which is cooled between rollers which exert high closing forces. Thinner film is produced by the casting process where the film is thin enough to be cooled only on one side by a polished roller. Thingauge double-polished sheet at about 200 microns thick is at the borderline between cast film and typical double polished sheet. This thickness threshold depends on the material being extruded and its thermal and physical properties. The production of thin-gauge sheet presents unique challenges which will be examined here.
