Refurbishment flat dies, special dies and coextrusion feedblocks

A complete refurbishment is often the cost-efficient alternative to replacing a component or machine, whether it is a matter of scratched dies, damaged edges, wear, or mechanical and electrical components that are in need of repair. We make your components fit for production again – and, by the way, this is independent of the original manufacturer. There are no limits to the possibilities.

State-of-the-art service equipment 

We analyze the need for repair and recommend a refurbishment tailored to your needs that will bring you up to the latest technical standards economically.

First, we record the existing melt flow channel geometry by 3D scan. Using this as a basis, we then recalculate and optimize the polymer flow using a rheological simulation software. Worn dies are then ready to face new demands, for example in an application with different raw materials and/or throughputs.

We leave nothing to chance: Final inspection, based on hightech processes and detailed human inspection.
