The maku-DieTool® is developed in-house and represents an optimized production process, an increase of the economic efficiency as well as an energy-efficient operation. The patented adjustment system for die lips is suitable for flat film extrusion lines and sheet extrusions. It can be put on any film or sheet die up to a width of 10 meters. The product solution can be used with a thickness measurement system as well as without an additional measurement system.
The functionality is based on an adjustment of the die lips and/or restriction bars, where the setscrew operates automatically. Maku-DieTool® is characterized by its individual and autonomous adjustment of the die lip at the film or sheet die with a travel range of maximum 4000 µm. Due to a configuration within seconds, a homogeneous material thickness is ensured. The adjustment of the several setscrews, die lips and restriction bars can be stored. The product is also available with a semi-automated configuration. The setscrews are operated automatically via a touch screen panel, where the user can choose between 30 stored profiles of die lips and restriction bars.
