Improved Extrusion Head Designs thanks to Additive Manufacturing
The development of additive manufacturing processes, such as selective laser melting (SLM), has significantly extended the options for manufacturing extrusion heads. Extrusion head designs can now be realized with very slender geometries, which not only have integrated mixer functions, thereby improving the melt homogeneity, but can also be used to attach the mandrel to the head. This allows compact heads to be manufactured with a very high potential for saving operating costs.

International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
