Austria-based extrusion technology supplier SML Maschinengesellschaft GmbH has unveiled what it calls the world’s largest stretch film line.

The company, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, claims that the new MasterCast line achieves higher film production capacity than any other stretch film line on the market, offering 6 m of usable film width and 4,500 kg/hr output. Because of its width dimensions, the line can produce thin stretch film as well as thick, pallet-wrap film.

The line incorporates six extruders and a 7-m-wide die and chill unit. Thickness measurement is performed via a twin-head, infrared gauge, and the system comes with a triple-turret W4000-25 winder producing rolls weighing up to 60 kg each (132 lb).

Headquartered in the Austrian town of Lenzing, SML is a global supplier of cast film and sheet lines, extruders, coating and laminating systems, spinning lines and related equipment.
