During the blown film extrusion process, there are several times film thickness inconsistencies and errors can cause major problems for your operation. From inconsistency in thickness caused by plate corrosion to human error, lack of consistency in your finished blown film extrusion process can cost you time, money and customers.
SolveTech, the leader in non-contact gauging systems, has been developing tools for thickness, profile and basis weight measurement of blown film extrusion products for over 30 years.
Blown Film Applications
Blown film, also known as tubular extrusion, produces tubular film. The film width is controlled by the volume of the air in the bubble, the output and the speed of the haul-off process. Blown film does not have a seam or a bead trim edge, so it often results in the most uniform end product. There are several applications including:
