Future Design Inc., Mississauga, Ont., has been awarded a patent on its Saturn Evacuation System (SES), which reduces airborne contamination that fills the plant during the blown film process.
Last month bought three changes of significance among equipment suppliers of extruded film and sheet.•Gloucester Engineering Co., Gloucester Mass., announced it had acquired Future Design Inc., Mississauga, Ont.
Extrusion machinery at the June NPE show in Chicago showed inventive ways to get more out of your floorspace and materials.
Future Design Inc., Mississauga, Ont., has developed its fi rst automatic gauge-control device for blown fi lm.
In response to rising costs for sand casting its aluminum air rings for blown fi lm, Future Design Inc. in Mississauga, Ont., turned to CNC milling air-ring sections out of aircraft aluminum plate and then assembling the plates with epoxy and fasteners.
Until recently, blown-film processors looking for auto-gauge control had a choice of one segmented-die system, one IBC-based system, and several segmented air rings. Now there are at least nine auto-dies, including two for high-stalk bubbles, and lots of air-ring variations. All claim to improve gauge uniformity, but there are differences.
At this year’s NPE, new processes to put wood flour into plastic were virtually everywhere—several even start with undried flour.
NPE will show higher outputs of practically everything, as advances in grooved feeds, servo drives, screw torque, mixing screws, dies, and downstream cooling, cutting, and handling make everything run faster.
