Greiner: Inline film decoration cuts costs

Window profile extruder Aluplast, downline equipment manufacturer Greiner Extrusionstechnik and plastics machinery system supplier Fux have developed an inline method of cladding PVC window profiles with decorative film that is claimed to cut production costs by more than 32%. The project was described at the K show last week by Fux managing director Harald Humpl. He said the cost saving had been calculated based on annual production of 160,000 running metres of window profile. PVC profiles are clad inline directly after calibration, but before co-extrusion of elastomer seals, eliminating the conventional transfer of cut profiles between containers and an offline cladding operation.
