Getting Better Blown Film

Westborough, MA | Danafilms, a manufacturer of custom PE films, recently upgraded its Westborough plant with another high precision Battenfeld Gloucester blown film line that will add more than 5 million lbs of additional capacity. “Our investment ensures our customers get a better, more consistent product on time,” says Steve Crimmin, Danafilms’ sales manager.

To provide that consistency, the new system includes an Autoprofile air ring system. that monitors and corrects the thickness of the blown film as it exits the die to keep it in extremely tight tolerances. “We find that tolerances are improved by 30 to 40 percent over non-automatic gauge control lines,” says Crimmin.

He adds, “Our new systems also include winders that will handle roll widths to 78 inches and 40 inches in diameter. This will reduce the number of changeovers for our customers with long runs.” Visit: Danafilms and Battenfeld Gloucester
