Material Processing Machinery

The material processing market encompasses a wide array of segments that include multiple sub-processes with varying requirements. Within the segments for creating extrusion coatings, films and sheets for flexible packaging materials, the machinery must perform to very demanding standards and tight tolerances to produce acceptable products.

Material Processing

The extrusion coating and laminating industry demands very tight controls with the ease to adjust product web width with ability to maintain very low levels of extrusion “edge bead”at the same time. Meeting these demands provides not only a superior product, but also provides savings in material costs. HARTING Han E® connectors are utilized by the world leaders in feed block and die technology to provide power and control to the process. Products created from this process include milk cartons and drink boxes.

Material Processing

Biaxially oriented film is one of the most demanding technologies for flat die extrusion. HARTING Han A® and E® connectors are utilized to provide power and control signal for feed block and manifold systems that can be assembled in multiple combinations. HARTING connectors assist in allowing for a product offering that can be easily customized to the desire of the customer. Biaxially oriented film is used to create products such as potato chip bags and cigarette wrappers.
