The processing of plastic materials are different depending on of the plastic type and can be distinguished in processing of thermosetting and thermoplastic resins.
Extrusion is a process that uses a die in order to get a material with a constant cross-sectional cut. Similar to extrusion process, here the tensile strength of the material is used to pull it through the die.
Lamination means a process applied to alloys metal, plastics and other materials, consistent in subjecting the material to the constriction action by a machine called rolling mill
The capacity control generally decides about the work hours and about which workstation cross-trained operators are allocated to. In particular it thus determines when overtime, shortened work hours and special measures related to the capacity flexibility are implemented.
