Extrusion Testing Laboratory
Diamond America’s extrusion testing laboratory is available for research and development of material applications, extrusion processes and, when needed, formulations. The test facility is equipped with Diamond America’s own table-top and floor standing extruders, with test extruder motors that are designed to handle batches ranging from a handful of material to pilot size runs. Diamond America’s engineers are on-hand to assist with testing, if required.
Customers may use the facility or send samples of material for our technicians to assist in the development of a working, reliable and efficient extrusion process. Once this has been achieved, precise system monitoring and control ensures repeatability on Diamond America equipment at the customer’s own facility.

Diamond America's Test Lab Solves Extrusion Challenges
Baked goods customer and a sticky situation
Extruding sample dough in our testing lab provides proof of concept in the ability to extrude the desired shape at a higher rate. It also confirmed the need to design a custom feeder to supply the sticky dough to the extruder on a continuous basis.
Simulating die flow conditions
Our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software accurately simulates flow conditions to determine the best die geometry to for optimization. Providing lab services with the additional support of flow simulation has helped customers around the globe solve complicated die issues.
Flow Simulation Helps Flea Collar Manufacturer
Flow simulation and lab tests of the customer’s existing die design provides analysis that optimizes the flow of product through the die with improvements in both uniformity and density.
