Dipiemme srl of Cassano Magnago, Italy, plans to run an in-line extrusion and thermoforming system making polypropylene drinking cups on a 12-cavity mold during K 2004. The line will include a main extruder with a metering pump, a metering die to produce 26-inch-wide PP sheet, calendering rolls for cooling, a heating section and a thermoforming and trimming station.
Features include compressed-air operation, a cam-driven toggle, brushless motor, aluminum water-cooled chain guides and fast mold changes. A Robostack system will remove and stack the cups.
Dipiemme also will show the latest development in extrusion waterproof membranes from high-impact dimple sheet.
