Automatic Thickness Control System for Extrusion Coating Line

SHIM (Sumitomo Heavy Industries Modern) produces the Smart Flipper T-Die. In fact, the Smart Flipper is an automatic thickness control system that features a T-die. Additionally, the Smart Flipper has a pneumatic lip forming mechanism. Thereupon, further enhancing the dimensional accuracy, stability, and productivity. Therefore, the correcting T-die for extrusion coating line and cast film/sheet production line brings together our extensive knowledge and high-level control technology.

  • Feedback control via thickness measurement
  • Instant response to correction commands
  • Faithful reproduction of preset parameters

Smart Flipper Feedback System

Smart Flipper T-Die

The T-die incorporates a pneumatic lip forming mechanism that instantly responds to film thickness signals and automatically corrects thickness.

Smart Flipper Features:

▌ High Responsiveness

A pneumatic-driven lip adjusting mechanism instantly responds to thickness correction commands, drastically shortening the time normally required for corrections.

▌ Stability

The heated environment does not affect the pneumatic drive. As a result, the thickness is always consistent.

▌ High Reproducibility

Unaffected by external factors, the Smart Flipper delivers high reproducibility. Namely, for holding the preset production parameters. Specifically, by calling preset configurations from memory. Regardless of the parameters.

▌ High Accuracy

For example, high-performance accrues by the molding of heat-dependent resins. Such as the profiles that require a high degree of precision.

▌ Low Energy Demand, Low Cost

The Smart Flipper runs on an air source of 0.7 MPa and air loss is extremely low, making it an economical tool for efficient production.

▌ Clean

The Smart Flipper does not require any working fluids and helps users to keep the production environment clean and healthy.
