Design of Optimal Extrusion Die for a Range of Different Materials

Abstract : THE coat-hanger melt distributor is a device commonly used in the wire coating process. Its task is to distribute the melt around the conductor uniformly. It is quite common that materials and flow rates differ from what had been specified during the design procedure. This may lead to bad performance with materials of very different rheological properties from the design material. In this article, we present an optimal design approach to avoid this loss of performances. This approach involves coupling a three-dimensional finite element simulation software with an optimization strategy based on a response surface method. The objective is to determine a coat-hanger melt distributor geometry that ensures a homogeneous exit velocity distribution that will best accommodate for a different range of materials. A coat-hanger melt distributor with a manifold of constant width is designed, and a set of flow distribution measurements is established for two different materials. The results of numerical simulation are then validated by comparison with experimental measurements. The effect of material change is also investigated.
