Octagon will be present at Interplast 2022 with the SmartLip air ring for film extruders. The great differential of this product is to make the automatic control of the air flow by mechanical elements that are positioned automatically. The gains of this system include the reduction in the use of raw materials, chips and machine downtime.
Technically, the thickness correction process in the SmartLip air ring is done through the internal movement of the elements that control the flow of cooled air. This differential benefits geometry regulation, balloon stability and thickness profile correction.
With the SmartLip air ring, the balloon takes longer to hit (flat) due to the special design of the lips. With this, the operator can make fine adjustments, speed up the extruder and even follow the thickness variation indexes indicated on the panel.
Of German origin, Octagon is present in South America, Europe, Asia and Arab countries. There are 61 countries and more than 2,500 customers served around the world. Our goal is to offer smart solutions for the plastics industry, reduce costs and increase production.
In Brazil, Octagon has been present for over 20 years and is the sales leader in the Brazilian market – with exclusive supply to the main companies in the segment of film extruders and measuring equipment in the country. We have technicians fluent in Portuguese, who participate in the entire process: from the preparation of documentation, operating system and development of materials in the operator’s language, to tutorial videos and training. This differential ensures that the operational and technical assistance teams know how to operate the equipment 100%.
