Multilayer Die Heads Header

Multilayer die heads

The revolutionary idea behind Rollepaal’s multilayer die heads technology is the symmetrical branching of the melt to feed the layers, guaranteeing the best possible layer distribution.

Multilayer die heads

The layer distribution is independent of melt viscosity, as there is no need for a melt flow restrictor gap with different lengths around the die circumference for correction. The design features a symmetrical split of short, round channels in each disc, preventing the melt from clogging the die head.

Depending on the application and formulation, the RMD die head is provided with either single or double compression tooling. The die head, with modular design, includes Smart Tool Change and Smart Centring. The easily accessible, short, round distribution channels make cleaning, when necessary, an easy task.
