Canadian extrusion systems manufacturer Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. has created a new division for film and sheet extrusion customers.
According to Mississauga, Ont.-based Macro, the new Technology Division is geared towards providing technical expertise and resources, as well as product and process development services, for increasing operational performance for blown and cast extrusion systems and web handling machinery.
“The division will expand on Macro’s current service offering to include comprehensive system audits on any film or sheet extrusion system or winding operation, system retrofit services, and troubleshooting,” the company said. “These services are available for any OEM’s machinery as they are not limited to Macro-built systems.”
The Technology Division, which is located at the company’s headquarters, will be headed by Dr. Felix Guberman, Macro’s technology director.
“We have a strong history of helping our customers meet challenging production goals by custom designing our machinery to suit their needs,” Guberman said. “We want to extend this service to those seeking to do more with the machinery they already have and provide processors with a means to improve their production with less capital investment.”
