This book is a step-by-step guide to die design for tubes and pipes. It offers unique coverage of the topic from a highly practical perspective. Written for plastics processing and design engineers, technical and manufacturing managers, die designers and manufacturers.
This comprehensive guide includes worked examples to illustrate problem solving and detailed drawings of complete dies for various applications. It covers mono- and multilayers pipes, as well as important melt flow variables (e.g., pressure drop, shear stress, shear rate, temperature variations, distribution variations) of key materials determined using FEM software.
