Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp. of Lincoln, R.I., said its Easy Change job-setting system automatically configures new job parameters much faster than a manual changeover.
Easy Change is designed for use with W&H's Varex blown film extrusion machinery. It adjusts four parameters: film width, film thickness/layer distribution, output and cage height.
W&H ran a demonstration at its Extrusion Technology Center that performed a product change in less than three minutes, vs. 15 minutes needed for a manual changeover.
