Cloeren customers report they can produce as many as 10 different products within a 12- hour shift.
To supplement our award-winning feedblock technologies, Cloeren offers options that increase efficiency, improve ease of use, and minimize downtime during layer sequence changes.
Selector Plug™ Cartridge
The Selector Plug™ is an interchangeable cartridge located upstream of the layer forming section of the Feedblock. It enables the operator to quickly change the layer sequence without disassembling the feedblock or melt delivery pipes. By simply exchanging the Selector Plug™ with another one having a different channel routing, the product layer sequence can be altered in less than 30 minutes.
Additional Selector Plugs™, for different layer sequences, can be purchased with the feedblock, or are available as an aftermarket item.
The patented TopHat™ is an alternative to the Selector Plug™, and is best suited for ultimate streamlining for heat sensitive polymer applications.
