Macro Engineering Partners with Brazilian Film
Manufacturer Meiwa in Installation of a Second Cling PVC Cast Film Line
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada – Macro Engineering and Technology, a leading supplier of film and sheet extrusion systems, announced the installation of a technologically advanced cling PVC cast film extrusion line at MEIWA Embalagens in Brazil. MEIWA is an innovative manufacturer of polymer film in the food packaging industry. “MEIWA was very happy with our first installation of the cling PVC cast film line, but wanted to tweak the second line for some specific requirements. Macro offers a unique value proposition from our competitors in that we custom engineer all our lines to suit different customers’ specific needs, so we were happy to accommodate MEIWA’s requests.” Stated Jim Stobie, CEO of Macro Engineering.
“We wanted a partner that would provide consistent quality, have good after sales service, and would tailor the equipment to our needs,” stated Ricardo Huang, Director of MEIWA Embalagens. “We did not want an off-the-shelf line that everyone else has, we have some unique requirements that Macro provided innovative solutions for.
In addition to the two PVC cling film lines, MEIWA also has a line from Macro to produce polystyrene foam.
This new cling PVC cast film line is capable of producing thicknesses in the range of 8-16μm, with a die width of 2.2 meters. The winder can produce 4 ups across the web at a line speed of 250 m/min.
