Dies made to measure to meet a great variety of customer demands

With its helix pipe die series, battenfeld-cincinnati offers its customers a choice of different, custom-made PO pipe dies that can be selected and adapted to your requirements. For instance, for processing a wide range of materials with a high output, the two-step distributor concept of VSI dies is recommended.

To process melt with fiber content, a spiral mandrel distributor is advantageous. The best solutions for processing materials requiring short dwell times, such as EVOH or PEX-b, are side-fed or spider-type mandrel distributors.

We also make custom products, such as modified VSI dies for 4-layer applications, or 7-layer dies with 4 color stripes to produce PP pipes with fiberglass content and an oxygen barrier layer, or multi-layer dies for processing materials requiring short dwell times such as PEX-b. It is also possible to have highly complex multi-layer dies equipped with different distributor concepts according to the requirements for the individual layers.

Your benefits:
  • High throughput
  • Exact wall thickness distribution
  • Long service life thanks to short dwell times of the melt in the die

Our features:
  • Depending on the field of application and requirement profile, a suitable melt distribution concept can be selected (VSI; spiral mandrel distributor; side-fed distributors; spider-type mandrel distributors or simple radial distributors).
