Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario, said its exchangeable extruder feed section, or Exxfeed, allows MacroPlast extruders to be converted from a smooth bore to a grooved feed, or vice versa, in three to five hours.
The company runs a Macro¼Plast extruder with an Exxfeed section in its laboratory.
In other news, Macro Engineering is selling a camera monitoring system, MacroEye.
Customers can view their film production lines from anywhere in the world, allowing remote troubleshooting. As many as eight stationary cameras give full-motion, real-time video. The cameras show areas that normally are hard to see.
“Line startup and production will be simplified, as operators will have the ability to see all the critical areas of the line in real-time video from Macro's Supercom control panel,” said Macro President Mirek Planeta.
