Blown film take-off unit

Intended use

The blown film take-off unit is used in combination with an extruder and a film blowing die head for simultaneous inflation, cooling, flattening, take-off and winding of an extruded film tube.

Efficient downstream processing of extruded film hoses

In blown film extrusion, you optimize your production conditions through the wide range of adjustment options of the blown film and take-off unit:

Adjust the tube diameter, flattened film width, film thickness and film diameter flexibly and reproducibly.

Check the so-called "frost limit" (the transition from the plastic to the solid state) by means of an adjustable annular gap of the film blowing head.

Support air and adjustable haul-off speed ensure optimum conditions for haul-off of the material.

A user-friendly touchscreen allows you to adjust the working height, winding torque and cooling air conveniently and precisely.

Extend optional functions and setting options as required.

    Efficiency and control over all process stations

    The blown film and take-off unit supports you in the field of blown film extrusion at all process stations:

    • Goods receipt and recipe development:

      - when testing the processing characteristics
    • During production:

      - Process control of your products
      - Ensuring a stable production process and a constant product quality
    • Goods issue:

      - End product control
      - Ensuring compliance with specifications and the quality of the
        finished product

    How does the device work in conjunction with a Brabender laboratory extruder?

    The plastic polymer exits the extruder via a ring die. The material flows out in the shape of a bubble.

    The diameter of the formed bubble can be adjusted by the amount of inflation air supplied.

    Through the film width control the bubble is guided upwards.

    Subsequently, the material is flattened by collapsing frames and taken off by nip rolls.

    The film is guided over the pulley and the guide rollers to the winder, which produces the finished film rolls.
