Product category: Machines for the production of packaging and packaging components / Flexible packagings

POD FLEX SERIES

First introduced by Macchi in 2001, the Polyolefin-dedicated (POD) technology has become a real industrial trend since 2013, when its ability to increase the margins in the tough film market by producing thinner, stronger, better and price competitive films has been fully recognized.

Five or seven extruders have quickly become the answer to achieve the desired optical properties, printability and sealability by balancing the characteristics of the new resins which are being made available in the raw materials market, for instance compensating the excessive elasticity of metallocene or linear skins in very thin structures by using stiffer grades in dedicated layers.

Collation shrink and flexible packaging substrates have been the driving force, but new applications are being developed daily.

The POD concept, offering unprecedented possibilities of film downgauging, higher output rates and better product performances, is paving the way to new business opportunities across the film markets.

COEX FLEX 3

One of the best known Macchi innovations have been the COEX FLEX “platforms”. All the components of the hot section are assembled on a baseplate, resulting in a compact unit which fits perfectly into a standard container, or under an existing extrusion tower.

The result is a user-friendly system which is not only economic to transport, but also easy to install and which allows the upgrade of an old mono layer system into an up to date coextrusion system, for a fraction of the investment.

Today the three-layer co-extrusion solution is the work horse of the industry, as it allows to achieve a high output and a significant level of productivity and flexibility.

Macchi has thus developed a whole range of compact COEX FLEX platforms to meet any production need and any capacity range, from 100 to 1000 kg/h.

Agrifilm

A growing film application area in blown film extrusion encompasses the pieces of equipment used to produce wide web films, whose main application areas span from ground covering (mulching and fumigation) to horizontal “silo bags” and greenhouse tunnels coverings.

All these applications have in common a more and more extensive use of tailored coextrusion techniques based on three, five and seven layer structures, often requiring the use of large sized die heads. Subsequently, extra-large cooling rings are required to cool these gigantic bubbles, as well as proportionately large collapsing frames and take-off arrangements. On web descent, Macchi have developed a whole range of folding devices, and dedicated shaft less AFS winding units.

No matter the size, the products obtained with these lines must guarantee the very same performances and quality as requested to flexible packagings or medical applications.

BO Series Winders

Winding is one of the critical moments in blown film extrusion: even the highest quality film, if wound incorrectly, can seriously affect the following printing or converting operations.

Since years therefore Macchi has developed the BO winding concept, which includes a complete range of digitally controlled, gearless, horizontal winding units, and which is nowadays universally considered as one of the best performing on the market.

The BO concept has been realized in two configurations, sharing the same strong structure: BO Basic, designed only for surface winding, and BO Plus, which features center, surface and gap winding.

Equipped with a number of features, both models can be personalized choosing in a range of original accessories, including a modular semi-automatic shaft handling system, with different automation options, designed to be fitted on any BO Plus winder

Recotrim

The RECOTRIM is a quite unique pelletizing system, developed to allow the in-line recycling of the side trims produced during film extrusion. As a standard, it is supplied with an air/trim separation hopper, which results quite useful when the winder is equipped with a Venturi suction system to allow the removal of the trims, but it can be completed upon request with a nip roll, whose speed matches the winder speed.

A typical RECOTRIM feature is the use of a counter rotating twin screw, allowing the smooth feeding of materials of any thickness. Once fed, the material is melted and plasticized in the screw, without losing any of its physical characteristics, and then fed to a specially designed extrusion die, based on melt flow concepts derived from film extrusion, and exits through a strand die. There, an adjustable speed rotary cutting system divides the extruded strands into pellets of the size required, which are then air cooled before being discharged in a container.

The system is equipped with a side chute, which allows also to reclaim waste reels.

The productivity of the RECOTRIM varies according to the types of materials, and can reach up to 50 kg/h.
