Additionally, the deformation of nuclei in the die gap is described by use of the capillary number Ca and correlated with the cell density of the foam sheets.
The movement, or stroke, of these translators provides gauge control by causing the die gap to increase or decrease.
Thus, a schematic sketch of a single-layer slot die gap with all relevant parameters is shown in Fig.
An optimum die gap is particularly advantageous if the molecular orientation between die and calibrating unit is to be kept low, in order, for example, to minimize shrinkage.
Machining for pin inserts to accommodate frequent die gap changes.
Dadurch stiegen die europaischen Agrarexporte, was den EU-Haushalt zunehmend belastete und weshalb die GAP aufgrund ihrer handelsverzerrenden Wirkung von anderen Mitgliedstaaten der Welthandelsorganisation (World Trade Organization, WTO) kritisiert wurde (Fennell 1997).
Proper film guiding is critical when handling barrier film: When exiting the die gap, the film bubble is characterised by an overlay of several freeze lines.
This machine has relatively few moving parts, runs at low speeds, has no tight clearances other than the roller die gap, and uses relatively low power.
Guided by a die gap readout gauge, basically its a matter of one person using a wrench to turn a bolt.
The origin of the coordinate system is located in the center of window W3 at the midpoint inside the die gap (cf.
The parison programmer uses only a small, low-flow hydraulic power unit for the servo valve to control the die gap so the hydraulic unit typically pulls less than 1 per cent of the total system power when the machine is in operation.
The QuickSwitch system uses a cone-shaped mandrel that can be moved in the axial direction to alter the die gap, while final pipe diameter is adjusted using a special segmented calibration basket.
