It’s an unfortunate fact of life for Film and Sheet shops—trim waste is an ongoing issue which must be dealt with. In smaller shops and start ups, trim waste is often removed manually, but as a facility grows and strives to improve, a more efficient solution is usually sought. Precision AirConvey’s complete trim handling systems and reprocessing equipment are often the solution most businesses turn to. PAC systems are customize-designed and –built to expertly serve the unique needs of blown film, cast film or extrusion coated material producers. But how exactly do we help film & sheet shops work more efficiently?
Our custom-designed pneumatic trim systems are FAST, whisking away trim waste and allowing workers to substantially increase line speed and increase productivity! These systems take a mundane task which detracts from productivity and renders it obsolete, allowing staff and equipment to focus on actual production. PAC systems also eliminate common causes of clogs and jams, further helping to decrease downtime and operational headaches.
PAC’s industry-leading trim removal systems and innovative Granulate Feed Systems (GSFs) work together to make film and sheet edge trim go further, helping you save on virgin resin — all without repellitizing.
The GFS can simultaneously feed edge trim and roll scrap into the system (if a roll feed is utilized on your granulator). The system can automatically start and stop the roll feed as needed.
As much as 28% of extruder output generally comes from film and sheet reclaimed materials — reclaim percentages depend on the amount of trim you produce and the size of the extruder feed section. In some cases, PAC systems have achieved a rate of 33%.
PAC’s engineers are innovators and industry experts in automating the collection of edge trim, roll scrap and waste material. They expertly craft custom solutions which best fit individual film and sheet companies’ needs.
In addition to our Granulate Feed Systems, we offer noise reduction, static elimination, dust collection and waste densifying options. Finally, PAC’s Roll Splitters allow film & sheet shops to remove material from rolls in a way that saves time, lowers costs and keeps workers safe.
