Extrusion systems manufacturer Macro Engineering & Technology has created a new technology division expressly to help processors better their film and sheet extrusion operations through a range of consultation and service based products.
The new division will provide technical expertise and resources for increasing operational performance for blown and cast extrusion systems and web handling machinery. It will expand on Macro’s current service and will also be responsible for offering product and process development services.
Macro technology director Dr Felix Guberman said the company helps customers meet challenging production goals by custom designing its machinery to suit their needs.
"We want to extend this service to those seeking to do more with the machinery they already have and provide processors with a means to improve their production with less capital investment," Gubermann said.
The Canada-based company produces systems for barrier films incorporating Nylon, EVOH, and PVdC for food and medical applications. It also custom designs film and sheet extrusion systems and winders.
