Abstract:

The extrusion-die is one of the main components in an extrusion line and influences the product quality as well as the whole process efficiency. The requirements on extrusion-dies are versatile and the design of extrusion-dies is a very complex process with the necessity for huge know-how. Therefore the whole design process of a spiral-mandrel-die (SMD) based on a parametric 3D-CAD-mastermodel has been coupled with a 3D-CFD-simulation and implemented into a fully automized process. The flexibility of the extrusion dies to reach a high product quality for different materials is one of six criteria for the automatic interpretation of the extrusion die quality.
