ORLANDO, FLA. — Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries LLC exhibited a re-engineered version of its widely used EPC edge bead-reducing extrusion coating die at ICE USA.
The Chippewa Falls, Wis.-based unit of Westlake, Ohio-based Nordson Corp. said the new die is more robust and easier to operate.
The design “eliminates the need to disassemble the deckle system for cleanouts of carbonized polymer buildup inside the lip, replacing a job that used to take an hour or an hour and a half with a simple procedure that takes just five minutes,” said Sam Iuliano, chief technologist, in a news release.
