Non-contact turner bar guides tacky films

Reifenhauser has developed a non-contact turner bar for guiding high quality films, including tacky film products. The Reicofly turner bar uses a microporous coating through which compressed air is released from the inside of the bar. This produces a uniform air cushion between the surface of the turner bar and the film.

Testing at Reifenhauser’s R&D centre has shown the turner bar to be successful with: protective films of coextruded EVA with a high VA content; stretch films of coextruded LLDPE composites with metallocene components; and scratch-resistant films.

The turner bar can be supplied with compressed air by a conventional pneumatic system.
