World´s Largest Stretch Film Line
During the celebration of its 20th anniversary with an in-house exhibition in Lenzing, Austria, SML Maschinengesellschaft mbH presented its most powerful stretch film line, MasterCast, a new benchmark with regard to its dimensions and output.
This stretch film line offers a usable film width of 6m (12-up) and a net output of 4,500 kg/h (gross output 5,300 kg/h). Moreover, apart from the high volume version, 5/7-layer concepts are available for lower outputs. Six extruders, a 7m wide die and chill roll unit allow a higher film production capacity than any other stretch film line in the market. Thickness measurement is carried out by a twin-head, infrared gauge and the line is rounded off by SML´s W4000-2S winder, which comes in a triple turret version that is designed for machine and jumbo rolls of up to 60kg each.
The MasterCast concept is clearly based on high output stretch film production. However, as opposed to the general opinion, this does not necessarily merely relate to thick, pallet wrap film. On the contrary, owing to its 6m-width, the line offers manufacturers an opportunity to achieve a sizeable output of thinner stretch film products.
