Higher Speed for Material Exchange
Technical Advances in More Flexible Blow-Molding Lines
Macchi presented at K the new Pod-Flex series for the production of seven-layer blown films with a net width of 2700 mm. The extrusion line can extrude laminate, barrier and biomaterials, since the new TES72 extrusion die, which is completely PVD-coated, can process both polyolefin and barrier-film formulations on the same line.
According to the manufacturer, extremely fast job changes with minimum production scrap are possible, for example thanks to the fully automated, integrated gravimetric system.
Finally, the fully automatic air ring permits high flow rates and the capacitative and optical no-contact layer thickness control system operates in real time.
Digitalization Is Progressing
The “Macchi 4.0” software manages data on formulations, consumption, production and the setpoint values of the line in interaction with the customer’s management systems. The new MDO technology supports the production of technical films with high mechanical properties and reduced thickness.
