BRAMPTON, ONTARIO (Oct. 4, 1:35 p.m. EDT) — At K 2007, Brampton Engineering Inc. will feature its AquaFrost and conventional blown film lines.
Brampton has sold eight AquaFrost lines since introducing the technology at the 2001 K show.
AquaFrost blows the bubble downward, through the firm's AquaRing, unlike standard blown film equipment that blows the bubble upward.
The ring quickly cools the molten plastic and creates very clear, soft film, at outputs that compete with cast film lines and at a cost 15-20 percent lower than cast, according to the Brampton-based company.
Brampton Engineering has a production-scale nine-layer AquaFrost line and a conventional nine-layer line at its film technology center in Brampton.
