Film and sheet extrusion machinery supplier Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. (Canada) has closed a deal with a major flexible packaging solutions supplier for several Quadex™ state-of-the-art 9-layer systems in Europe.

The lines are designed to handle various materials including barrier resins such as polyamide, EVOH, and PVdC to produce films that offer exceptional strength to match the enhanced barrier effects that can be achieved with the bi-oriented process. These films are then converted into shrink bags for the food packaging industry, particularly meat and cheese.

Martin Baron, Director of Sales at Macro, comments about these lines: “The extruder screws are specially designed to process different materials so that there is no need to change the screws when processing resins from commodity to specialty engineering resins. The lines showcase proprietary 9-layer die and calibrator technologies; thanks to Macro’s innovative design, the lines are able to produce a desirable range of shrink films for meat and cheese packaging. The film can also be irradiated for crosslinking, in order to achieve even higher performance properties.Macro was the chosen supplier since the customer has some unique requirements to build the lines according to their specifications. Macro’s equipment also offers the best performance/cost ratio. Macro’s strength in custom machinery at a reasonable price was the deciding factor for them to get the orders. We look forward to many more successful projects to come."

The system was designed with features to further minimize waste and maximize energy efficiency. The Macro process control system includes the “ReadyRun” feature in which the customer can restore frequently used recipes at the push of a button. This significantly reduces changeover time and improves the consistency of the products.

The line is also equipped with the “Green Energy” feature in which the energy consumption is optimized during the heat and cool process; the customer is able to view energy consumption in real-time. This feature helps them to know which recipes are the most efficient to produce.
