Large Diameter Rings Fabrication | Publication Date: 2.28.20
A process of forming large diameter polymeric rings is disclosed involving providing a heated filament or tape to a rotating drum at an adequate temperature. Once deposited, process parameters (such as extrusion temperature, extrusion speed, drum temperature, and speed) are optimized to achieve a desired thickness, inner diameter, and outer diameter for a polymeric ring formed without a weldline. Such rings offer a myriad of applications in industrial equipment while reducing cost, material, and complexity of fabrication over existing ring production methods.
