Deflection of Pancake Dies
Pancake dies show several advantages compared to spiral mandrel dies, e.g. an easier way of production. One disadvantage is the higher complexity of their mechanical dimensioning. At the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV), Aachen, a calculation module for the rheological design software "Wenverti" was developed. This module links the mechanical and rheological design of a pancake die.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
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.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
