Improved soft film processing is possible with Battenfeld Gloucester’s Horizontal Oscillating Hauloff, called the H-nip. The new design has a substantial base-mounted support bearing, similar to the successful Traversanip vertical oscillating hauloff. This helps to prevent nip roll “sway”, which can occur in some horizontal nips with overhead bearings.

The H-nip design is also more compact than many competitive units, adding five to 30 in. to the die-to-nip distance without adding height to the tower. In tight retrofit applications, the increased bubble cooling time the H-nip affords can be essential to producing soft, tacky films.
