Future Design Introduces Bubble Width Control Unit


MISSISSAUGA, ON, | CANADA | Future Design, a Gloucester Engineering company, announces the Saturn Echo 20.20 bubble width control. 

Said to improve film quality, reduce scrap, and improve yield, the unit maintains the film (tubing) diameter to ensure the layflat width is as close to the specified parameters as possible. By running tighter layflat tolerances, customers can reduce their trim and scrap, company says. In addition, the bubble width control assists in the recovery of bubble breaks.

Offered as a retrofit for nearly any make or model of non-IBC (internal bubble cooled) blown film system, the control will not only reduce costs, company says, but also will pay for itself in many ways including reducing the number of customer returns. Other benefits reportedly include extrusion rate and operator reaction time.
