The control of flow balance at the die exit is the key for successful extrusion of polymers. The complex cross-sectional variation in real-world hollow extrusion profiles intrinsically promotes flow imbalance in the die cavity. Special considerations are required for designing extrusion dies for such profiles. The die design for a complex door frame profile was computationally optimized in this study with the aid of a commercially available software package. The velocity distribution at the die exit, post-die extrudate deformation, temperature distribution, and pressure distribution of a traditional die was investigated in detail and found to be inadequate. A modified die incorporated three distinct features, flow restrictors, flow separators and approach angle of the torpedoes, to achieve a balanced and uniform velocity at the die exit. The flow restrictors and flow separators were added in the pre-parallel zone. Flow restrictors were added on top and bottom of the torpedoes to increase the restriction on polymer flow. A unique inclined flow restrictor was introduced to achieve uniform internal melt flow. Flow separators were added at junctions of outer wall and inner vertical walls to separate the polymer flow into different sections and minimize cross flow between these sections. The addition of these features proved to be highly effective for balancing the velocity distribution at the die exit. The combination of 3-D modeling and simulation is an effective cost and time efficient approach for optimizing complex die designs before manufacturing.
