Toronto-based film manufacturer New Solution Extrusion has ordered a new 3-layer blown film extrusion line. The line, which is expected to be in operation by the end of October, marks the company’s entry into multi-layer manufacturing. New Solution Extrusion manufactures a variety of films for the pet food, beverage, food, biscuit, chemical and horticultural markets.
The new 71 in.-wide line, manufactured by Macchi S.p.A., incorporates leading-edge technology, including an automatic die, Kundig sensor and software for automated adjustment of film thickness and reduction of point-to-point gauge variation. The line also incorporates Macchi’s Co-Ex Flex space-saving extrusion platform, featuring three extruders mounted parallel on a single base.
