EDI® Cast Film Dies

Whether your specific cast film product requires the uniquely shaped Contour® die, a versatile Uniflow™ die, or a multi-manifold die, Nordson will work to provide an innovative solution to meet your needs. 



  • Achieve optimal product quality with customized manifolds designed specifically for your production requirements
  • Reduce material usage and easily changeover products through a variety of available product features, including automatic or manual adjustments and deckling
  • Reduce resin costs by precisely controlling the gauge profile
  • Improve cross-directional product uniformity by up to 25% and reduce gel formation
  • Reduce downtime for routine maintenance with ancillary equipment designed for added safety and convenience during 'split and clean' procedures
  • Spend less time purging and changing colors between product runs due to streamlined diminishing volume flow channel of a Contour® die
  • CastFilmMaxiflow8Die



  • Autoflex™ automatic or manual gauge control
  • Multi-manifold or single cavity coextrusion dies
  • Unequaled construction and flow surface design
  • Variety of finish and plating techniques available
  • Unique heating and insulation package
  • Optional deckle systems
  • Easily adaptable to interface with new or existing equipment


Contour® Cast Film Die

Uniflow™ Cast Film Die

  • Recommended for applications where thermally sensitive materials are being used and frequent rate changes are made
  • Elongated teardrop, diminishing volume manifold improves layer uniformity in coextrusion applications
  • Non-linear preland/manifold interface, which eliminates or greatly reduces “M” or “W” flow patterns
  • Contour technology provides dimensional and process stability, and at the same time achieves uniform film properties, good purging characteristics, and avoids gels and degradation
  • Significantly reduce scrapped materials by achieving acceptable product levels quicker than with a standard coathanger manifold die
  • Improve product quality with lower levels of polymer degradation when compared to a conventional die
  • Recommended for applications where thermally stable materials are being processed with very few rate changes
  • Elongated teardrop manifold cross-section shape promotes uniform layers in coextrusion processes
  • Versatile flow channel design accommodates a broader range of resins and processing parameters
  • Outstanding mechanical stability reduces the changeover time between each product run
  • For thermally stable resins, on-spec product can be produced with high yields
