Macro Expands Refurbishing Capability


Film and sheet extrusion machinery supplier Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. (Canada) and its sister company MT have expanded their refurbishing capability in their headquarter in Toronto, Ontario,Canada.

“We have seen a significant increase in request for refurbishing customers’ existing equipment. If the equipment is worn, several things can happen: chance for polymer degradation increases, polymer flow distribution worsens over time, and melt temperature gradient is also questionable.” Says Jim Stobie, Macro’s CEO. “After we refurbish our customers’ dies and retrofit old screws, their equipment performance improves again. This is the most cost-effective way to maintain productivity and product quality”

The refurbishing process involves evaluating the existing dies to assess damages if any, strip the plating, remachining the die surfaces if required, polishing and re-plating again. The dies are as good as new after finishing. All the cleaning processes are done manually to ensure that the die is not overheated unnecessarily to prevent metal warpage, or cracking of the plating.
