A nine-layer Filmex cast film line is now available at Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp.´s technology center in Lengerich, Germany.
The line has eight extruders and features newly designed barrier screws for higher output and improved melt quality. The line uses three chill rolls, each with separate temperature control. Profile-Booster does rapid die optimization when the line starts up.
Also, film edge encapsulation allows inexpensive resin to be used to encapsulate web edges, resulting in reduced costs from minimized edge trimming.
