Reduced costs for raw materials, improved product quality and more sustainable production: When it comes to the manufacturing of highly filled, non-transparent packaging film, the EVOLUTION Ultra Fusion technology fulfills three requirements in one go. This is made possible by the use of twin-screw extruders – a premiere in the field of blown film technology.
Replace expensive raw materials with mineral fillers or powder – for example with CaCO3. With the current Side Feeding System of the EVOLUTION Ultra Fusion, the filler content in the film can be up to 30 percent. The high values are even achieved with slightly moist filler material.
In spite of using more economic fillers, you need not forfeit quality. Quite the contrary: The economic fillers improve the strength and stiffness of the film and give it a high-quality, matt surface, as is customary on premium products.
Twin-screw technology need not be complicated. With the EVOLUTION C touch-screen control, operating the line is as easy as using single-screw technology. With the operating panel, you control and monitor all components individually and maintain an overview of the production.
EVOLUTION Ultra Fusion is the technology for very high productivity. Increase your output in comparison to customary blown film lines by up to 20 percent. This is made possible by the higher density and the lower specific heat of the fillers.
With the Reitruder twin-screw extruder, you process the raw materials in a single production process, from source material to final product, without intermediate solidifying and remelting of the plastic. No compounding is performed - the energy costs drop.
