Plastic Film Winding Machines



Application
Plastic film winding machines.

Challenge
A plastic film manufacturer was rebuilding 300 winding machines at its production facility. A pneumatic valve manifold controlled the winders’ loading, unloading, rotation, tensioning, and cutoff capabilities. The manufacturer required a compact manifold that would fit in a confined enclosure space. It also needed a product with proven reliability and easy access for plumbing and wiring.

Results
Emerson’s ASCO NumaticsTM 501 Series directional control valve manifold achieved all of the machine’s technical requirements while easily meeting the enclosure’s space constraints. The manufacturer was impressed by the manifold’s ease of maintenance and proven high reliability. The technical support fulfilled the customer’s specification to provide multiple pressure ports within the manifold. In addition, the local ASCOTM distributor continuously followed up with the plant’s maintenance engineering group. The customer is very pleased with the 501 Series’ performance and has committed to purchasing the manifold for the 3-year project.
