Knife holders

ACE Series knife holders :

Most of the cutting quality or knife breakage problems are provoked by low performance knife-holder equipment. AMN ACE series are the solution you were looking for.

Inventor of the self-aligning knife holder in 1995, AMN offers an efficient solution to the problems of loss of pellet cutting performance.

Combining self-alignment and robustness, this knife holder is flexible and light. Easy to handle, it is a factor of productivity gains.

ACE knife-holders have no competitors when safety, reliability, and pellet cutting quality are on the top of your preoccupations.

Pelletizing die plates and debottlenecking system

1- HOW Series pelletizing die plates :

Inventor of the tungsten carbide cylinder cutting face in 1978, AMN is the only skilled manufacturer to master this surface.

Reliable and resistant, our exceptional quality finishing high-tech die plates match performances and longevity.

With design ranging from 1000 Kg/H to 80 tons/H, they outperform any other type of die plates in terms of uninterrupted production periods.

Our die plates insure both dry and wet start-ups efficiency, due to their unrivalled contribution to heating homogeneity.

1.1- Manifold

Optimized die plate heating homogeneity cannot be obtained with our competitors’ standard design.

AMN brings you a unique approach with its special oil and steam manifolds, resulting in exceptional die plate performance in terms of start-up, limitation of die plate freezing and pellet quality.

AMN manifolds, combined with our unique HOW die plate designs, are the long term heating solution you will not find in any other die plate manufacturer’s range of products.

2- DAW Series compounding pelletizing die plates :

Since its creation in the 1970’s, Amn always continued to innovate in the field of polymer cutting for petrochemicals groups. It now puts its technology to the service of the compounders.

Reliable and competitive, the DAW compound series die plates offer an exceptional life span. They are the result of the technology Amn has developed for the production of high tonnages.

3- R2D2 Debottlenecking system :

Facing the continuous needs of production capacity increase, this high technology concept, reliable and economical, is a quick and effective alternative adaptable to any type of extruder.

This concept, interchangeable, allows you to switch back to your initial equipment since it does not need any particular modification on the machinery.

For all of your production increase projects, our R2D2 system will be the essential element to take over the increasing of the polymer flow.

Mould and die cleaning equipment

Die Plate and thermosensitive equipment cleaning process.

AMN has developed a specific cleaning procedure which is especially adapted to all types of internally heated die plates and to thermosensitive or fragile equipment.

Besides the cleaning by oven, with precise control of temperature, AMN also performs a sand blasting of all the surfaces of the equipment and erases all pollution risks which can be due to carbonized polymer in the production holes or areas difficult to access.

For equipment working with hot oil, AMN realizes a cleaning of the heating circuit before the cleaning by oven to avoid the oil crystallization and the plugging risks.

A complete expertise is done before and after each cleaning by different nondestructive tests (dye penetrant test with UV lamp, sealing test, etc.).

The expertise is validated by checking reports.
