Guill Tool & Engineering: New Dies for Wood-Filled Profiles

New extrusion dies with channels that allow both heating and cooling reportedly make more stable wood-filled profiles that are less subject to warping, sagging, or voids. Guill Tool & Engineering Co., USA, developed its Equaflow extrusion tooling specifically to solve problems in extruding wood-fiber composite profiles. However, they are also being applied to other tricky materials, such as a developmental composite filled with crumb rubber. Equaflow dies are available in two models: for wood-filled monolayer and coex profiles. Both die types can be either for hollow or solid core profiles.
