Currently, most ofthe companies are using Heat Bolt T-die which basically works on thermal expansion and contraction, but with Sumitomo’s Patented Pneumatic T-Die it totally works on air pressure due to which response is extremelyfast and noheat release during the process which saves running cost and electricity as well.
The smart flipper is an automatic thickness control system that featured a T-die equipped with a Pneumatic lip forming mechanism to greatly enhance dimensional accuracy, stability, and productivity and adjusts uneven thickness in a short time (within a few minutes).
Customer can savewastage by trimming, thickness variation and improved quality of the product. if any ECL useris interested then Sumitomo Heavy Industries Modern can replace T-Die with Pneumatic system.
Then Sumitomo T-die is the best option to replace existing t-die with Pneumatic T-die.
In case of customer wants to change existing T-die then Sumitomo engineers visit the customer's site and check all feasibility as follows.
