Formation of products by paste flow and extrusion occurs in a multitude of industries including the manufacture of a broad range of ceramics, foods and pharmaceuticals. This unique text is the first to demonstrate, to suppliers and users of paste flow equipment, a scientific means ofapproaching design and operation. It will be indispensable in developing new products and processes in addition to enhancing existing ones. All types of equipment are considered and particular emphasis is given to paste characterization and die design. Based on 25 years' indusrial experience andresearch work, the text blends theory and practice, with emphasis on the practical applications, for anyone with a background in engineering or science.
