Macro to Showcase its Latest 9-Layer Blown Film Die at NPE 2012
Canadian film and sheet extrusion systems manufacturer, Macro, will showcase its latest 9-layer blown film coextrusion die at the upcoming NPE show in Orlando.
The die is an adaptation of the manufacturer’s TaperPack stackable die design, which Macro uses on smaller-diameter blown film lines as well as its double and triple bubble lines. The key adaptation to this latest design is the extruder adaptor heights are all level; meaning extruder centerline heights don’t need to be staggered to accommodate the die’s adaptors. This greatly simplifies installation and frees up space in the extrusion area.
As with previous versions of the TaperPack die, this newly designed die has the versatility to run the majority of today’s polymers. With a short residence time and the ability to carefully control temperatures and layer thickness, the die provides the processing flexibility that allows for a wide array of product changes that include barrier structures comprised of PA and EVOH.
The die is available up to 11-layers and can be outfitted with IBC hardware and Macro’s ACCUPRO Automatic Gauge Control die lip heaters.
Macro will be located in the West Hall at booth 5577.
