K SHOW PROGRAM DEMONSTRATES WAYS TO SUPERCHARGE PRODUCTION, ENHANCE QUALITY, AND
PLAST-CONTROL announces a broad reaching K
Show program to be presented at Hall
10 Stand J28.
PLAST-CONTROL will introduce a new automatic
profile control air ring series, PRO-CON II and also introduce the new Material
Flow Control system. The booth will feature new gravimetric hopper
configurations for fast changeovers and clean out and a PRO-SCAN non-nuclear,
non-contact scanning gauge system for sheet.
Throughout the show, on-line, real time connections monitoring PLAST-CONTROL
systems at work on multiple blown film extrusion systems shown by major
manufacturers during K will be an ongoing feature on display.
The new PRO-CON II air ring for both stationary and
oscillating dies allows a significant increase in the volume of cooling air, compared to
earlier versions. The increased air
flow enhances cooling and supports significantly increased throughput rates.
The system ensures the high-speed adjustment, process stability and ex
film gauge profile typical of all PRO-CON systems.
It is offered in a wider range of sizes, with the maximum diameter
increased from 750 to 1200 mm, available with mono, dual lip and Hi-Flow lip
According to Mark Anderson, PLAST CONTROL Sales
Manager, the new Material Flow Controls, also to be introduced at K, provide
precise monitoring and automated control of material consumption, ensuring only
material needed to meet production actually enters the production system
eliminating costly and wasteful material clean out during job changes.
Anderson says Material Flow Control delivers significant savings though
reduction in the amount of material in the loading and Dosing (blending) system
at the end of a job that is typically thrown into the scrap box. Material Flow
Control also allows faster
changeovers and easier clean-outs and thus more sellable production time.
The introduction of new technology and the
opportunity to examine our systems at work under production conditions makes the
PLAST-CONTROL booth an important stop for U.S. processors looking for ways to
supercharge their production rates and slash their operating expenses,
PLAST-CONTROL manufactures extrusion process control and
management technology in Remscheid, Germany.
Systems and components are engineered to enhance production of blown
film, sheet, pipe and tubing. PLAST-CONTROL
installations have enabled up to 50% improvements in gauge control in blown film
processing and significant improvements in product yields per pound of material.
In many cases they have increased output as well.
All PLAST-CONTROL systems and components can be retrofitted to optimize
the performance of most extrusion systems and may be ordered as integral
components of new extrusion lines. PLAST-CONTROL
technology is unique, patented and available only from PLAST-CONTROL. More than
3000 PLAST-CONTROL systems are successfully in operation throughout the world.
