Before the procedure within the profile die module of the CFMM in the VEL can be applied, the opening in the last plate at the exit of the die for the extrusion of the bulb seal (in this case) must be specified.
Using the new profile die module within the Virtual Extrusion Laboratory (VEL) from Compuplast International, for example, dies can be balanced through the cross flow minimization method (CFMM), making the extrusion process less sensitive to the extruder type and line speed (and consequently, allowing for maximum production rates to be achieved).
Indeed, the VEL can be seen as a design tool that is quick and simple to use, and that helps optimize openings in dies through the CFMM. Such a process was in actuality specially developed by extrusion professionals, based on how die makers design plates at their companies (2D openings for wire electrical discharge machining [EDM]).
It merged with the Dominion Conference of Mayors in 1937 to form the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities (CFMM), largely as a reaction to the financial crisis experienced by local governments during the Depression.
Meisel and Lemieux concluded that CFMM was not adapting well to Quebec's Quiet Revolution, although perhaps the most important of several contributing factors was the personality of long-time executive director George Mooney.
Another factor was the growing unrepresentativeness of the leading francophone members of CFMM. They were, according to Meisel and Lemieux, "in their mid-sixties, on the whole, men of the old school, out of touch with much of what was happening in their own province." They were being replaced in their municipalities by "new mayors, caught up in the nationalism which made many Quebeckers wish to endow their provincial government with additional powers (often at the expense of Ottawa)." (5) The new mayors did not deny the usefulness of CFMM as a clearing house or research body, but they were more in tune with provincial imperatives than with the organization's continued pursuit of aid from the federal government.
CFMM'S rapid loss of membership during the 1970s was in part due to its perceived closeness to the Ministry of State for Urban Affairs (MSUA), established by the federal government in 1971 in response to growing North American concern about the condition of cities.
In response to CFMM'S evident decline, the organization was restructured in 1972 to ensure the representation of larger municipalities on the board of directors.
By the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of CFMM in 1987, FCM had almost 350 members, including the City of Montreal.
Monsegur, CFMM, PhD, is the principal of Lourdes Catholic High School in Nogales, Arizona.
The following demonstrates the procedure for applying the profile die module and cross flow minimization method (CFMM) within the virtual extrusion laboratory towards the design of a die for a "bulb" seal.
