Quick-change line for cosmetic tubing.
The die head is also light enough that an operator can move it without a crane. Flow in the die is over a helical, not a spiral, mandrel so the volume of plastic in the head is reduced, speeding color changes. Downstream calibrators are built in sections that weigh 4 to 5 lb for faster tool changes than with heavy one-piece calibrators that require a crane. New computer controls start the line up automatically and remove any off-spec production. Tel: (201) 767-7111 * www.bostonmatthews.com
