MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA (September 4, 2013) – Recent changes in materials, material combinations and processing parameters in the blown film industry have prompted Future Design, Inc. to introduce their newly redesigned universal Saturn Manual Perfect Balance air rings. The results include improved gauge performance and numerous other benefits.
Among the benefits are improved width control, bubble stability and finished roll geometry plus faster running speeds. Designed to enable operators to manually manipulate airflow to desired points, increase low thickness areas and reduce high thickness areas to improve the yield of high quality film. The MPB works with stationary, rotating or oscillating dies. An upgrade to fully automatic profiling (APB) air rings is also available.
Specifically, according to company officials, all aspects of the Maximizer Plus air ring were considered for redesign, including, but not limited to the bubble cone, adjustable chimney and forming cone. The redesigned MPB will now provide the exact balance of volume and velocity required to accommodate the widest range of polymers. During operation the system delivers segmented airflow to calculated circumferential area to assure the highest level of operational reliability with manual manipulation. Ease of operation has always been the strong suit of this universal air ring that is completely manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminum components.
Future Design Inc., a Gloucester Engineering Company, manufactures a wide range of beneficial products for the flexible packaging industry. The firm is noted for their blown film bubble management expertise and products including their Saturn™ and Perfect Balance ™ air rings, SES evacuation systems, patented Escort collapsing frames and Little Giant narrow web/lab lines.
