Optimizing Extrusion Control with TSM Control Systems
The extrusion process in plastic manufacturing reveals various challenges affecting operational efficiency and product quality. Leading challenges are achieving accuracy in recipe mixture, managing energy consumption, and minimizing material wastage. With the industry moving towards eco-friendly practices, these challenges are under the spotlight. This article delves into these core issues, highlighting how TSM Control Systems’ innovative solutions lead the way in process optimization, cost reduction, and quality enhancement in extrusion processes.
Accuracy in Recipe Mixture:
Accuracy in recipe mixture stays a challenge due to variations in raw materials, process control limitations, and equipment wear and tear. An inaccurate recipe can cause rejects in the final product which affects profitability and customer satisfaction.
TSM Control Systems’ Opti-Mix gravimetric batch blending system offers precise material blending. The Opti-Feed gravimetric dosing system allows exact dosing and aides in keeping consistency. TSM’s Insight real-time data collection system monitors various parameters, offering a data-driven approach to enhance output consistency.
Below we showcase the Opti-Mix in operation within a factory setting.
A Spotlight on Sustainability:
TSM Control Systems’ solutions contribute significantly to environmental sustainability. The Cherry Pipes & TSM Control Systems partnership generated a 20% increase in recycling efficiency and a 15% decline in energy consumption, aligning with both company’s sustainability goals.
The energy-intensive nature of extrusion is often worsened by inefficient equipment or improper process control. TSM’s Opti-Yield extruder control system optimizes the extrusion process, curbing energy consumption. Insight’s real-time data collection helps monitoring, paving the way for further optimizations.
Material wastage from product defects, die leaks, or purging results to monetary loss and environmental impact. TSM’s solutions, like Opti-Mix and Opti-Feed, reduce material wastage by dosing raw materials accurately and creating a homogeneous mixture. The Insight system supplies real-time data on material usage, aiding in reducing wastage.
