Reproducible Quality with Networking Control
Among the highlights to be presented by Hosokawa Alpine AG, Augsburg, Germany, will be a new version of the ExVis which it claims supports intelligent networking of production systems and makes complex systems intuitive and easy to use. To ensure high film quality, the monitoring system provides the operator with information about the production process at a glance. Hosokawa claims that, once produced, film structures can be reproduced any time later.
Machine-direction orientation lines (MDO) have been part of the company’s portfolio since 1997, and have continuously evolved during this period. Neck-ins during orientation, however, cause stretched film to become increasingly thicker at the edges. In the past, a uniform thickness profile on the reel and thus good film flatness for downstream processing was obtained by generously trimming these thicker film edges. Hosakawa Alpine’s Trio system (Trim Reduction for Inline Orientation) significantly reduces edge trim waste, thereby saving on material and boosting net output.
Together with Hosokawa Kolb GmbH, Niederkassel, Germany, which became a 100 % subsidiary of Hosokawa Alpine in early 2016, the company is investing in innovations and further developments in the area of winders, and these will also be exhibited at K 2016.
