Die Cleaning

With a Vapormatt system in your die correction shop you will experience an increase in throughput by reducing the amount of time spent on manual inspection. You will also see savings overall as the Vapormatt finish will increased die success rates.

There is a vital requirement for the on-going cleaning and polishing of dies. This is a critical operation for the continual production within an extrusion plant but one that is often considered time consuming and full of tedious processes. However, without proper care and attention given to the preparation of dies, extruders risk high extrusion scrap rates and low die success rates.

Die cleaning 

The Vapormatt process can offer you consistency of processing and the uniform polishing of your dies to an above acceptable level to ensure the efficiency and longevity of your process. By lubricating the abrasive particles in water this allows the media to remain in contact for far longer than the dry alternative. This allows for a greater cleaning action in a reduced amount of time.

This happens primarily due to the introduction of water which creates a "buffer" around the media, this allows it to flow across the critical faces which are often hard to reach when manually filing. The water in a Wet Blast machine will also reduce the amount of wear that your die's and mould's are subject to. Not only can we remove most contaminants but the critical bearing faces are preserved which will prolong the life of your tools.
