|Macro Extrusion Systems|
Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. is a global supplier of systems, components and services to the plastic film industry. Macro designs and manufactures advanced full extrusion and coextrusion lines for monolayer, barrier and specialty films and sheet. Macro develops customized winding and unwinding solutions, and supplies turnkey installations, product development and training services. Over 80% of Macro's revenue is generated by exports to the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The Company is headquartered in a state-of-the-art facility in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Since the company was founded in 1978, Macro has acquired nearly 40 patents and has made several important breakthroughs in plastic film processing technology. Our continuous investment in R&D ensures that the latest technology is always available to our customers. Macro's labs have the capacity to run production scale blown film lines, cast film lines and double bubble lines for R&D purposes and customer trials. Macro understands that our customers participate in highly competitive markets. We fully appreciate and respect our customers' need for confidentiality in order to preserve their position in that market. Committed to protecting the interests of our customers while maintaining the highest standards of integrity, we will enter into any reasonable confidentiality agreement at our customer's request.

It is our belief that this approach reinforces the customers' sense of security when working intimately with Macro.
The line includes the addition of two individual extrusion dies to process low and high viscosity resin types.
Process reportedly yields dies 'good as new.'
Tandem extrusion of PS is still the standard technology, but new materials options and equipment technology are emerging.
As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.
Center-turret type has two winding modes.
Line can produce up to 1500 lb/hr.
Macro applies technology originally developed for cast to blown film.
New system enhances flexibility of a single line.
Macro develops multi-tube process that prevents impurities from leaking layer to layer.
Line produces film from 8-16 microns thick for both hand-wrap and machine-wrap applications.
Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.
Macro offers smaller footprint compact line to ease installation, save space.
Across all extrusion technologies, expect to see new standards in speed, quality, flexibility, and efficiency in both energy and material usage.
Macro Engineering & Technology Inc., Mississauga, Ont., has launched a new Technology Division dedicated to helping processors improve their film and sheet extrusion operations through a range of consultation and services.
Line produces the encapsulant material used in the assembly of solar modules
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.
At NPE2012, Macro Engineering and Technology, Mississauga, Ont., launched new technology to extrude foamed films in what it describes as an “environmentally friendly process” that uses inert gas as the foaming agent.
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.
In blown film, equipment and material suppliers have come together to push five-layer technology into non-barrier applications previously held by three-layer films.
In most segments of extrusion technology, the word at K 2010 is more.
