“The main aim of the project is to improve the extrusion process through the introduction of a controlled ultrasonic vibration assistance process. Greater control of material fluidity, improvement in the dispersion of reinforcements included in the material and increase in processability of these types of plastics are sought. The new technology will be applicable to both continuous extrusion of profiles and to extrusion-blowing of hollow profiles.”
