Macchi Spa, the blown film equipment maker in Venegono Inferiore, Italy, has improved the extrusion and control areas of its machinery.
Macchi has enhanced its Coex flex die heads, as well as refined its screw design to give better flexibility and productivity.
A recently introduced cooling ring with a lightweight carbon body provides light weight and thermal efficiency.
On the controls side, Macchi has introduced a Siemens wireless operator panel. For aftermarket service, the company offers a teleservice system so its technicians can solve problems remotely, via a wireless audio and video connection.
Macchi also uses Siemens torque motors on all components of its blown film lines.
Macchi North America Corp. is based in Gainesville, Ga.
