Multi-Color/Multi-Shape Die System vs.
Traditional Blending or Multiple
The Multi-Color/Multi-Shape Die System eliminates the costly expense of blending and batching multiple runs to attain the desired finished product color and shape combination. Extru-Tech has validated the versatility and functionality of the MC/MS Die System through independent production collaborations and research conducted in its Corporate Innovation Center. This testing and research showed in Table 1 that - in comparison to a typical, traditional blending bin configuration - the 4-color MC/MS Die System produced 558 total extruded tons to the traditional setup's 349 tons, while suffering less than half the average downtime of the traditional setup. When correlated to dollars, this difference goes straight to the bottom line.
