A twin lever gate from Diamond America Corp. features two clamshell halves mounted on levers that move the halves out from under the barrel so the resin being purged doesn´t collect in them. The unit´s two lever arms support the gate halves, eliminating the need for heavy lifting. Customers have reported die change times have been reduced by up to 75 percent, the company said.
