COMERIO ERCOLE’S CALENDERS AT PLAST 2018: L configuration and 7-metre long rolls
the news says:
At Plast 2018, Comerio Ercole will present, together with its subsidiary CKA, some important technological innovations recently developed for calendering machines and plants for plastics processing.
In particular, the company will unveil Flexi, a multi-purpose calender with high-precision hydraulic roll positioning, designed to work with 4 or 5 rolls according to the type of processed product (plasticised or rigid PVC sheets), thus obtaining 3 and 4 lamination banks, respectively, while keeping the same downstream stretching, embossing and cooling units. The new inverted L calender configuration, designed and patented by the two companies, enables the calender to grant high quality performances for a wide range of applications.
During the show, a giant calender will also be exhibited, featuring 7-meter long rolls and designed for the production of thermal/acoustic insulation materials at process temperatures up to 260°C. The first giant calender has been commissioned and started up during 2017, and the customer, based on the results obtained in terms of process accuracy, has confirmed a new order for a second identical unit, to be delivered within the first quarter of 2018. It’s a great result for Comerio Ercole to have designed and built this calender, as well as the satisfaction of the customer and his confirmation of the new order. These recent results were further strengthened on the basis of the service provided by the Comerio Ercole R&D team, which allowed the development of new and innovative composite products on behalf of the final customer.
