Raytek Corp. has launched two laser-imaging systems for film extrusion.
The EC100 monitors the temperature of film extrusion, extrusion coating and lamination. The ES100, meanwhile, does early detection of die bolt heater problems or plugged dies, by subdividing a thermal imaging into a selected number of sectors that correspond to a die bolt.
Both systems feature Raytek's MP50 Process Imager. After the imager is installed, the entire system usually can begin operating in less than one hour, according to the company in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Prices for the ES100 begin at about $13,750. The EC100 system, which also includes laser aiming, is priced at $16,000.
