Two well-established processors are combining their manufacturing muscle to offer brand owners form-fill seal packaging solutions on a global basis for food, consumer, and medical/pharmaceutical markets. The marketing alliance was announced last month by Berry Plastics Group, Evansville, Ind., and Klöckner Pentaplast Group, Gordonsville, Va. Berry makes non-forming lidstock films, while Klöckner Pentaplast manufactures multiple types of forming films used to produce trays. Together, the two processors can engineer specific solutions to meet performance criteria like seal and peel, gas barrier, clarity, heat resistance, and recycled content.

     Gels are a common quality problem in extrusion of clear film and tubing less than 0.005 in. thick.

  • Stop Die Buildup

    Die buildup, also called die drool, die bleed, or plate-out, can plague any extrusion process.

  • Extrusion Troubleshooter

    Extrusion is a "black-box" process. We can't see what goes on inside an extruder, so we depend on instruments. We need to be sure that all sensors are working and readouts are calibrated correctly.
