Hoogstraten, Belgium | Davis-Standard has completed the installation of a 65-ft agricultural film line for Hyplast NV. Says Paul Leenders of Hyplast, “The line was installed, commissioned, and in production ahead of schedule and in time to meet our production commitments. [It] is already producing film of the highest quality in thickness and optics at outputs far exceeding those typically associated with lines of this size.”
The line includes MAC super air-cooled extruders and an 80-in., three-layer die system. The custom die system features an insulated IBC system with a unique internal and external heating mechanism to reduce melt fracture and help increase rates. The design of the upper nip and gusseting also is customized, allowing for dual collapsing techniques. The line utilizes an 8-in. core extruder and two 6½-in. extruders to achieve targeted outputs of more than 2 metric tons/hr.
