Processing Technologies International, LLC Launches New G-Series Configurable Roll Stand at NPE2015
Feb 19 15
Processing Technologies International, LLC has launched the G-Series Configurable roll stand which permits greater flexibility and significantly reduced downtime for system modifications. The new roll stand will be unveiled at NPE2015: The International Plastics Showcase March 23-27 in Orlando, Fla. The next-generation system sets a new industry standard because of its innovative and visionary design. The G-Series Configurable Model GCH661824 employs a unique design concept which enables easy downstream configuration changes for inline thermoforming and roll stock applications. The new roll stand simplifies future expansion and utilization of extrusion systems for sheet. The G-Series Configurable roll stand boasts modular systems which facilitate rapid downstream configuration changes. Previous custom roll stands often require modifications taking weeks and sometimes months. Now, that process can take just hours as processors add another piece of equipment or make other modifications with minimal re-engineering and reduced downtime, according to Banach. Among the key advantages is a configurable frame which allows other downstream modules to be added without any cutting, welding, or machining. The length of the module can be adjusted, increasing or decreasing the distance between the main roll stack and the pull roll. This feature permits incorporation of new components including, but not limited to, additional cooling, surface treatment, slitting, and gauging stations. This also enables manufacturers to change the order of downstream operations within a system as well as the potential of sharing modules between other compatible G-Series Configurable systems. The G-Series Configurable roll stand also allows for easy integration of utilities such as electrical, water, and compressed air. An integral energy chain allows utilities to be easily repositioned due to the system's configurable elements. Other standard patented G-Series features on the GCH661824 roll stand include linear bearing system positioning, ratcheting vertical nip height adjustment, mechanical roll lock-out, and transfer roll coating for top and/or bottom side application. This system also includes PTi's high-performance modulating water circuits. Internally positioned energy tracks permit open-side access and catwalks allow for easy operator access. The G-Series Configurable roll stand is commercially available in vertical up/down, J-stack, or horizontal configurations.
