Equipment retrofits and control upgrades are available to extend the life of your machinery investment with like-new system performance and options to accommodate budget parameters. For example, adding extrusion coating capabilities to an existing laminator can address new structures and applications while supporting operational efficiencies.

To support your growth in markets such as food, protective packaging and agricultural films, we’ll work with you to engineer the right solution for the application(s). This includes machinery that fulfills the most demanding flexible packaging, non-wovens, paper and board coating, liquid coating and laminating applications. You can take advantage of:

  • Laboratory-sized systems for R&D all the way up to 6.2 meter-wide systems for industrial materials
  • A proven range of extruders, feedscrews and control systems
  • Automatic profile control (APC), air rings, deckle and die options, multi-coating solutions, web handling, winding and unwinding, liquid coaters and more
