ET2 - Influence of process parameters on front and back end defect.
Front (also called “charge welds”) and back (also known as ‘butt contamination’) defects are inevitable phenomena in billet to billet production. Yet, their extent and impact on productivity can be minimized through a specific die design and an accurate selection of process parameters. The presentation will describe the mechanism of formation of front and back end defects and their evolution will be analyzed through FEM simulations and experimental results.
Roles interested in this speech:
Extrusion and process manager, quality manager, project manager, R&D manager, business development manager, technical manager.
This seminar is perfect if you want answers to these questions:
- What can I do to make my process more remunerable? May I reduce the scraps?
- Why charge welds-related defects still affect my profiles, although we have already tested charge welds extensions?
- How can I properly select an optimal ‘butt’ length?
This seminar will allow you to:
- Acquire or refresh the basic mechanism of front and back end defects formation.
- Understand which extrusion parameters affect charge weld extension and how much such fluctuation is.
- Understand how FEM simulation can improve your process remunerability.
