SPE Extrusion Division

Welcome to the SPE Extrusion Division 1-0-Wiki - a guide to everything extrusion

Division Scope:

It is the purpose of the Extrusion Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) to advance the technical body of knowledge in the field of plastics extrusion industry as a whole. This will be done by study within the Division, by conducting seminars at all levels of proficiency, by promoting extrusion technical activities at the local levels of the Society, and by publishing plastics extrusion technical information which otherwise might not be disseminated.

Introducing the Wiki:

Living true to our scope, the Extrusion Division of SPE Board of Directors (BOD) is happy to provide a new resource for gathering and searching information as related to the extrusion process and industry. We have chosen a Wiki format that gives everyone an interactive forum to collect and share everything about extrusion. Following the well known KISS principle, we've started the SPE Extrusion Division 1-0-Wiki as a "Keeping It Simple and Straight-forward resource" starting with the "Extrusion 101" basics (hence our 1-0-Wiki name), and then progressing through the vast amounts of information collected by the division since 1972, with the Consultants Corner, Extrusion Hints, Shop Tools, Book Reviews, etc. Updating of the 1-0-Wiki is currently locked, but you may contribute content via our 1-0-Wiki administrators. Please email them at any time via admin [at] extrusionwiki [dot] com. The website will be open to public editing in the near future.

There are two ways to find topics in our 1-0-Wiki: by searching or by browsing.

If you know the name of an article or topic you would like to search, simply type it into 1-0-Wiki's search box and press enter. You may also like to look around the 1-0-Wiki by using the left navigation menu.
