Offering complete and in-depth data and
information on plastics extrusion, this practical handbook presents the
technology of the subject rather than the theory.
Presents an overview of extrusion technology
as applied to the operation of extrusion systems and the design of tooling and
equipment for use in the process. Provides basic technical information on the
behavior of polymer and plastics materials in the extrusion process. Contains
tool descriptions that provide a basis for the analysis of existing product
lines as examples for the design of new systems. Includes illustrations of and
background material on control systems for the extruder and extrusion process.
