Addex Shuts Massachusetts Location, Names New President
Headquarters moves to Newark, N.Y. for blown film specialists.
Blown-film specialist Addex Inc. announced it has shut down its operation in Stoughton, Mass. The move means an existing existing facility in Newark, N.Y. which houses a pilot blown film line, will now be the company’s headquarters. Long-time Addex executive Robert Cree was named president of the firm, which makes a wide range of cooling and control systems for blown film. Addex co-founder and former president Rick von Krauss will remain active in the company on a part-time basis and will remain as chairman of the Addex board.
Newer specialty slip masterbatches go beyond traditional capabilities to provide greater thermal stability, reliability, and ability to hold COF steady during laminating.
Gels are a common quality problem in thin film and tubing extrusion. To solve them, learn from where they came.
A poorly designed profile die—one that does not permit the part to be extruded with the same dimensions from run to run—coupled with a lack of understanding of the extrusion process, is a recipe for scrap generation.
