Plast-Control: New automatic cooling ring

Plast-Control, Germany, has launched a revised high performance cooling ring. Visually the body of the air ring has changed little (except in diameter), with most improvements made ‘under the hood’.
By means of an advanced computer aided simulation program, the air lip design has been optimised regarding air flow behaviour, generation of air turbulences and air flow path. Therefore the volume of air can be increased up to thirty percent without making the bubble instable. More air means more cooling and more output.
The original and well proven concept of regulating the volume of cooling air - segmented around the circumference of the die has remained the backbone of the PRO-CON system, says the company. The improvement of air flow characteristics and mechanical layout of the ring together with the newest control software, ensures a high speed adjustment and stable and low gauge film profile.
