Since inception, Cloeren ownership has never changed.
Since 1974, Cloeren has stood for innovation. Founded by Peter Cloeren Sr., that tradition of innovation has been handed down to Peter F. Cloeren and his family. No other company in the industry has that kind of stability and continuity of ownership. We are there for you when you need us, a source you can trust.
Cloeren thinks and works “outside the box” to help solve customer’s most vexing challenges. Cloeren leads the way with process know-how and innovation, evidenced by an abundance of published industry patents– 30+ and more pending. We developed some of the industry's most important innovations, such as the Selector Plug™ Cartridge, Variable Geometry Feedblocks (VG™), Internal Deckle System (IDS™), Edge Bead Reduction for Extrusion Coating (EBR™) and Edge Encapsulation (EDS™) These innovations are so significant and reliable that they have become industry standards
Cloeren customizes and optimizes the design of each system we make for your unique needs. We then build each to superior specifications and tolerances with the best materials available resulting in unsurpassed product quality. This results in rapid commissioning, faster run rates, more on-spec product, less waste, less downtime, fewer repairs, and longer service intervals. As a result, Cloeren Feedblocks and Extrusion Dies have a lower cost of operation and higher return on investment. If a problem does develop, our worldwide staff can be on location to help you fix it. It all adds up to higher profitability for our customers. Cloeren builds machinery with low total cost of ownership over the life of the equipment and lower cost of operation becoming evident shortly after initial investment.
Our products provide higher production yields than other extrusion devices. In the coextrusion process, the Selector Plug™ Cartridge and TopHat™ designs make altering layer structure sequencing easier and enable operators to quickly change layer structures without completely disassembling the feedblock, increasing efficiency and decreasing downtime. In fact, the Selector Plug™ can allow for alteration of the product layer sequence in less than 30 minutes. Cloeren’s unparalleled intellectual comprehension of laminar flow of viscoelastic fluids insures unparalleled performance in both individual and total mass thickness uniformity.
