Macchi North America has sold a three-layer blown film line to New Solution Extrusion of Toronto.
The 71-inch-wide line is due to start running in late November, said Paul Conley, North American sales manager for Macchi in Guelph, Ontario. New Solution Extrusion is a new division of an undisclosed firm that will identify itself after the film line is running, Conley said by telephone.
The line features Macchi's Co-Ex Flex space-saving extrusion platform with the three extruders mounted parallel on a single base. The line also includes Macchi's Easy-Control touch-screen supervisory system, an automatic die, Kundig sensor and gauge control variation of less than 2 percent Sigma2.
New Solution Extrusion makes films for pet food, beverage, food, chemical and other industries. Macchi SpA of Venegono, Italy, will supply the new line. Conley said New Solultion plans to buy another Macchi line next year.
