System of Simultaneous Stretching MASIM
MECHANICAL ADJUSTABLE SIMULTANEOUS BI-ORIENTATION MACHINE – is a technology designed and patented by MARCHANTE SAS.
Even if sequential stretching is mostly used in film industry today, however, for certain film applications with high mechanical or optical properties it is preferable to use simaltaneous stretching.
Marchante SAS has created a solution for simultaneous stretching both in the machine direction (MD) and transverse direction (TD) in one process without roll contact.
Due to this technology, now it is possible to produce films with superior optical properties, excellent shrink values, high tensile strength for specific applications like ultra-thin capacitor films, touch screen films, adhesive tapes or cigarette films.
Technology highlights of MASIM :
- Unique system in the market which can be installed on most existing sequential biax lines.
- Building design requirements are identical those of sequential line : no additional utilities, no special foundations, no additional space requirements.
- MD and TD stretching ratios are fully independent and adjustable during film production.
