Collin highlights at the Fakuma…

Curtain call! New Teach Line generation

For the first time, Collin presents its new Teach Line machine generation. Furthermore, a blown film line with the new series extruder is shown at the Fakuma booth - in operation, of course. The Collin Teach Line series includes extruders, compounders, roll mills, blown and flat film lines, stretching machines, water baths, pelletizers and pipe lines. The table-top machines are mainly used by universities, R&D departments or laboratories for tests, trainings and trials. Optically revised and modernized, the Teach Line lines offer many improvements.

All-digitally controlled and international Plug & Play

"From now on, all components of our new Teach Line series are all-digitally controlled. Moreover, as a result, the lines are completely prepared for Fecon", explains DI Dr. Friedrich Kastner, CEO Collin. Visual Fecon is the Collin company software package, with which different measured values can be recorded and analysed via PC.

"Also new is that the width of the Teach Line lines could be standardized to 200 mm. Now, all voltages and frequencies are possible without any transformer - that means, the lines internationally run without any accessory device", says Kastner. In the run-up of the Fakuma, Collin could have patented the new design line of the Teach Line lines worldwide.

Simply practical! The compact flat film line

Besides the new Teach Line series, Collin also shows a very compact Lab Line flat film line with chill roll, online rheology and mountable camera inspection system at its booth. With that, the company emphasizes its range of know-how from laboratory up to pilot production lines.

Rheometers are used for the determination of the melt viscosity and are therefore an essential element of the permanent quality control during the processing of polymers. The camera inspection system offers a continuous optical control of the film according to 10 error classes and 14 error criteria.

Perfect for product tests & prototypes

The flat film line with single-bearing winder is ideal for test series, product tests or the development of prototypes. Furthermore, it is an advantage that the line requires little space and that it is easy to handle.
