Swedish machinery maker Axon AB has introduced a small blown film extruder that extrudes two film tubes from the same extruder, thanks to a split melt stream via a special feed block.
The machine is used to make packaging tubes for bottom welding or other types of closing, and making sausage casings where no longitudinal welding is acceptable.
Axon of Nyvang, Sweden, said the K show in Dusseldorf, Germany, marked the first time it was presenting a machine with two film systems from one extruder.
