New Four-Line Blown Film Profile Measurement for $19,000 Per Line
PLAST-CONTROLs ACS Pro-Fil, a new on-line profile
measuring system for mono and co-extrusion blown film lines, is being offered in
four line configurations for less than $19,000 per line.
PRO-FIL is a blown film gauge designed to measure film during production. Gauge profile measurements from up to
four lines can be displayed on a single computer and monitor. The standard system includes computer,
software, monitor and one gauge. Gauges
for additional lines are optional.
no samples required
Up to four
lines can be constantly monitored
pneumatic sensor for increased update time
die bolts for all applications, including rotating/oscillating dies

measurement for critical film production
profile may be measured by a capacitive sensor located in the collapsing frames,
on the bubble with an optional rotating scanner with radial adjustment, or by an
Air Gap Sensor positioned downstream of the nip rolls on the lay flat film. For very sticky films that will not
slide over a conventional capacitance head, an optional patented Roller C-Head
capacitive sensor may be supplied.
information with die bolt mapping is displayed on a 19-inch color monitor in a
conventional linear or polar graphic format.
Data is also displayed in tabular format and includes target and actual
maximum and minimum gauge deviation, 2-sigma variation and, if optionally
equipped, lay flat width and line speed.
computer system ACS PRO-FIL can monitor and display four lines concurrently. The
data or plots may be displayed on a single page or up to four profile displays
may be shown on a single screen.
is a modular system and can be expanded to include PRO-CON automatic profile
control air ring, width measurement/control, weight per length control and
material dosing. All PLAST-CONTROL
systems are network compatible.
manufactures extrusion process control and management technology in Remscheid,
Germany. Systems and components are
engineered to enhance the economics of production of blown film, sheet, pipe and
tubing. PLAST-CONTROL installations
have provided over 50% improvements in total gauge to blown film processes,
significantly improving product yield or feet of sellable products 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 economic 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 14,000 PLAST-CONTROL
systems are successfully in operation throughout the world.
