Greiner Extrusion U.S. Inc., which makes dies and vacuum calibration equipment used in vinyl window extrusion, in Meadville, Pa., has introduced two products:
* A probe that measures the melt temperature as the material comes out of the die. Seventeen temperature sensors are arranged in a symmetrical pattern to record the temperature after the extruder adapter.
* Training software for extrusion technicians and machine operators, to help with troubleshooting and simplify the complex relationship between problems and their solutions. The software lists typical problems, shows a picture of them, and lists possible causes. Then it lists possible remedial actions.
