The distribution mechanism, as mentioned previously, that provides the critical reshaping, can be designed optimally for only one material, at one operating temperature and one thruput rate. Any deviation from this narrow set of operating parameters must be compensated for through some type of mechanical adjustment. The most common first order adjustment mechanism is a flexible lip located in the body of the die immediately before film discharge.
