Our R&D Center in Austria and worldwide test centers offer the chance to test equipment that is suited to any number of industries, from automotive and aerospace to electronics. The pilot line for film and foil casting in particular can be used for industries that require thin films and foils.
Benefits of Berndorf Band Group’s pilot line for film and foil casting
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of Berndorf Band Group’s pilot line for film and foil casting is that it allows for the development of optimum process and system parameters. Throughout the development process, our experts will assist you to determine the optimum production speed, temperature profile and more. The pilot line for film and foil casting is able to test production using temperatures from 25 °C (77 °F) to 180 °C (356 °F), and adjust the belt speed from 0.1 m/min to 10m/min. Our experienced experts will support you in converting your process to production scale.
While in the process of testing at our R&D and Test Center, we will of course test the manufacturing process from the development and production of materials until production of the final product. This ensures that each step of the production process is optimized for you, with the assistance of our specialists. Moreover, it means that through the testing process we will manufacture samples of your product for you.
Throughout the testing process, the pilot line for film and foil casting will record processing data, ensuring we can reproduce the production process, including speed, temperature, film thickness and more. This data ensures that, once the machine design and production process has been finalized, production of your product can begin seamlessly, with the help of our experts.
