Free webinar explores "Ten (11) Key Principles of Extrusion"

PlasticsToday will host a free webinar, "Ten (11) Key Principles of Extrusion," on May 12, 2014. During the one-hour presentation, extrusion expert Allan Griff will explore such topics as:

  • why the material moves forward through the screw(s),

  • where the heat to melt comes from,

  • the need for speed reduction,

  • the importance of the rear barrel section,

  • why material cost is critical and power cost much less so,

  • the "vital signs" (measurements),

  • the components of output rate, and,

  • the dependence of viscosity on flow rate in dies and screw channels/clearances.

Industry newcomers and seasoned pros alike are certain to learn a few tips that can be put into practice immediately.

A question and answer session follows the presentation.

Griff is a chemical engineer who has been presenting webinars for PlasticsToday since 2010. He wrote the first practical book on extrusion in the USA (1962) and his Plastics Extrusion Operating Manual is now in its 21st revision with over 40,000 copies sold to date.
