The more stable the die the better the extrusion process. With shrink ring technology the die is reinforced with a solid ring so that high loads are possible. Very ideal for extruding wide profiles. Adex Shrink ring technology is strongly used in combination with the Adex spreading technology.

Benefits through shrink ring technology:

  • Enables customers to extrude larger profiles in smaller dies, this enlarges the press capabilities.
  • Minimising cracking of the die
  • Longer die life
  • Reduction in material use
  • Cost reduction
  • Higher productivity

"Improve the material specifiaction of the die"
