Macro Engineering Announces Partnership with Raven Industries in Installation of New,Industry-Leading 7-layer Cast Extrusion Line

Macro Engineering and Technology, a leading supplier of film and sheet extrusion systems, announced the installation of a technologically advanced 7-layer cast extrusion lamination line at Raven Industries in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA. Raven Industries is an innovative manufacturer of polymer film and sheeting.
Macro Engineering specializes in custom machinery designs. “We took on the challenges this project presented to us along with the Raven development team,” stated Jim Stobie, CEO of Marco Engineering, “This is a win-win situation for both companies as we partner up to deliver innovative products to the industry.”


“This line provides opportunity for Raven to partner with our customers in the development of some truly unique products with exceptional value propositions,” stated Anthony Schmidt, Vice President and General Manager for Raven Industries’ Engineered Films Division. “The advanced capabilities of this production line will accelerate our expansion into the industrial business segment by offering a broad range of highly refined composite materials — with several being new to the industry.” This new 7-layer cast lamination line is capable of processing advanced barrier structures designed specifically to prevent the migration of radon, methane, odors and hazardous VOCs. Unique line features include the addition of two individual extrusion dies to process low and high viscosity resin types. The separate dies enable production of custom-engineered fabric composites, scrim-reinforced membranes and integrated release liners. The new line boasts advanced wide-width cast capabilities of up to 150 inches (3.8m), ranging from 4 mil (0.1mm) to 80 mil (2mm) in thickness.
