Abstract

This paper reviews advantages and disadvantages related to the computerized process control on extrusion lines. It is shown that electronic gaughing coupled with computer control of process means 6-7% materials savings for any given gauge and probabily for just about any stable line. Other advantages that are demonstrated include - process accountability and process repeatability. Automatic control systems available are described in some detail with particular attention to adjusting die bolts electronically that is regarded as a significant step in automating extrusion.
