Macchi film line includes new winder design

Issue: April 2018

Coex 5 POD Macchi will showcase its five-layer polyolefin-dedicated (POD) blown film line during NPE2018, where it will be running a PE stand-up pouch at a high production rate.  Five extruders, together with the ability to process new resins, allow increased product downgauging, sometimes up to 30 percent or 40 percent of the original thickness, as well as higher output rates.

What’s new? Macchi’s improvements include a new winder design that is more ergonomic and user-friendly. The die head is surface-treated with chromium nitride, which offers high material flow, less transit time of resin in the spirals, quicker material changeover and better film optical features. It also features a double ring, which increases output and flexibility. The machine also is fully digital and Industry 4.0-compatible.

Benefits Better accuracy and more-efficient operation, while achieving downgauging of the film. Use of the Siemens Profinet communication system, with its wireless LAN, allows more accurate machine operation and remote diagnostic capabilities.
