MDO innovate your film and boost your market!
Dear Valued Customers,
has been always investing in their research and development department, as we
are totally aware that the flexible packaging’ market is strongly and
constantly evolving. That’s why we have been studying all the possible
developments related to the use of MDO
(which stands for Machine Direction Orientation)
units. After focusing on the mono-orientation of CPP film, achieving a
significant downgauging while creating better mechanical and optical features
for the film, we spent the last months developing very innovative features
about the mono-orientation of CPE film.
MOPE offers amazing
features, which could be crucial for creating a valid alternative to some
existing products in various markets. Step by step COLINES® is getting the best
results in this field, thanks to the ongoing developments of the MDO units.
MDO units are now more accurate and convenient than ever:
- The patented
heating system with infrared ray heaters inside the rollers allows the orientation without any
temperature dissipation, which is the most common fault of standard
- The IR heating system minimizes the
- Sensors detect the temperature directly on rollers’
surfaces, for a more accurate reading of the data.
- Every roller is divided in at least three transversal
zones for temperature control, assuring a perfect uniformity of the
- The operating temperature is reached much faster than in oil or water systems, which means a dramatic
reduction of scrap during line startup.
- The infrared eliminates the risk of potential oil and
water leakage, which represents an enormous advantage in terms of
environmental sustainability as well as in terms of safety. This system is fully risk-free for
- The independent adjustment of the cylinders’ position,
speed and temperature significantly reduce the “neck-in”.
Stay tuned: in a few weeks
we will have our brand-new dedicated lab-line ready and we are available to run
tests. Want to find out something more? Feel free to contact us and get in
