Did my extrusion die get enough heat?
Preheating of a die is an essential factor of extrusion. When a die has had to little heat it could tear. Through different factors the temperature of the die could fall. On the basis of the color tabels below, it is possible to track down which temperature (circa) the die has had.
The extruder determines the temperature through knowledge and experience. Besides, some alloys provide the extruder to play with temperature during the extrusion process.
What are extrusion dies made of?
Our extrusion dies are made of (hot tool/work) steel. Steel is an alloy between iron and a limited carbon content(max 2%). There are more than 2300 species with different properties. It depends on the amount of carbon if the steel is more stiff/harsh, strong and bendable. A higher carbon content will lead to stiffer, but more breakable steel. A lower carbon content will lead to stronger, but more bendable steel. Below you will find a simplistic explanation of the steel production process.
Benefits of aluminium
Aluminium, the third most abundant element in Earth’s crust. Aluminium is a chemical element (symbol Al) and it is a ductile metal in the boron group. In this article we inform you about the benefits of aluminium and aluminium series.

Dear Sir or Madam,
Since the outbreak of the Corona virus (COVID-19) we have been using a strict protocol within ADEX. This to ensure that we keep our workforce healthy.
Sticking to this protocol has resulted in a healthy workforce that is on the same level as before the outbreak. Capacity is back on the level that we are used to.
This gives us breathing room and space for new orders. Adex has still sufficient raw material and tools available to ensure the production. So for this we foresee no problems for the future.
The current protocol stays in force untill we find it save to either partially or completely lift it.
The Protocol is:
*For all our employees and visitors we have a protocol in place, which includes rules of conduct such as increased attention to hygiene rules and avoidance of crowds. This protocol is regularly updates as the situation changes.
*Handshaking as way of greeting will not be done as part of the precautions
*Business trips from Adex employees will be postponed until further notice.
*Visits from suppliers or customers will be kept to an absolute minimum. We prefer to contact our suppliers/customers by alternative means (Skype, Phone, Email) until further notice.
*For deliveries and pickups we have protocol that should be taken into account.
Stay healthy and stay safe!
We zijn er maar wat trots op. Vanaf heden hebben we een aantal whitepapers online staan. Deze whitepapers bevatten gedetailleerde informatie over de beschreven onderwerpen. We zijn nu begonnen met spreiding, simulatie en co-engineering. Meer whitepapers zullen spoedig volgen.
