Spanish and Portuguese processors and converters of sheet and film produced by flat die extrusion are invited to a one-day seminar on new developments in dies and ancillary equipment systems to be held in Barcelona on October 22, it was announced today by Mircan 1979 S.L., organizer of the event. The company represents a range of key equipment suppliers in the field, including Extrusion Dies, Inc. (EDI), which will make presentations at the seminar on innovations in flat dies and coextrusion feedblocks.

The two EDI presentations will be made by Dr. Alberto J. Rincón, technical sales manager. Other presentations will cover on-line viscosity measurement, screen changers and diverter valves, melt pumps, and gauge measurement and control, according to Mircan managing director Carles Miró, who noted that the seminar is the first such event sponsored by his company.

“This seminar provides an opportunity for many processors and converters in Spain and Portugal to obtain a systematic overview of innovations in the tooling and ancillary systems that are essential components of an extrusion line,” said Miró. “The EDI segments of the program alone will cover such new developments as enhanced gauge control, streamlined manifold designs, leak-proof deckling, feedblocks that are adjustable on-line, and a range of improvements designed to reduce downtime for product changeovers or die cleaning.”
