Battenfeld Gloucester: 17-Layer Cast Film System

Battenfeld Gloucester Engineering Co., USA, announces it is currently designing and building a 9-extruder, 17-layer cast barrier film line, expandable to 34-layers in the future for one of its customers.
The film produced on this 17-layer line will range from deep-draw forming film to high-barrier film for pouch and retort applications. Specifically designed 9- and 17-layer feedblocks, versatile dies, and enhanced cast film unit all contribute to the re-duction of expensive barrier film resin.
The line includes Battenfeld Gloucester’s Model 1011S winder, with the ability to wind film on either lift-out steel cores or cardboard cores on lift-out steel air shafts.
The 17-layer system will be in operation in the first half of 2006 with more details available soon.
