It is a matter of common sense. A good start always increases the chance of success.
Our extrusion system has been designed to achieve the highest output and the smallest waste. For you, this means controlling the process in order to obtain the best quality. For us it is an exercise in rational technology.
The feeding system, the cleanliness of raw materials and dosing are critical to the production of high optical quality sheets. Thanks to years of research focused on this process phase, Omipa can offer you the best technology available.
Extruder feeding is accomplished through a dosing system controlling the loading, mixing and colouring of the raw material, ensuring it is free from any contamination. In order to guarantee the best level of accuracy, we opt for an integrated gravimetric dosing unit with more components.
The extruder incorporates a screw whose special profile, a perfect example of Omipa’s know-how and experience, always ensures homogeneous and constant mixing and plasticization.
The barrel has a special wear-resistant coating and is provided with venting hole with high vacuum suction.
The molten material is filtered through a filter changer with hydraulic control or through a continuous flow filter changer.
The installation of a polymer feed pump group from the OMP series in an exclusive Omipa design, assures total control of material flow, as it maintains constant pressure under every working condition.
Omipa proposes special coextrusion systems to process the various materials (PC, PMMA, PETG, PET).
You can choose among different coextrusion blocks for multi-layer applications. In any case, you can be sure you will always obtain a perfect and homogeneous distribution across the entire sheet surface.
Our range of differently configured dies, of the MSB and PCB series, will enable you to cover the entire production range in all thermoplastic materials.
This is much more than a promise. It is our experience, integrated by the most advanced CAD/CAM design methodologies, that allows us to guarantee the most precise and controlled distribution of internal flows.
All our dies offer top flexibility as regards width, thickness and output, with every material, thereby improving quality and process. The absence of choke bar, for instance, avoids material stagnation and consequent degradation. We have a single objective: the preservation of quality, in every condition.
