Film Trim Conveying Systems
Trim removal will never be a problem in your plant if you put Quickdraft to work for you. Quickdraft pioneered the concept of continuous trim conveying using Venturi Technology. The Venturi provides an unobstructed flow path that is ideal for conveying continuous edge trim and other broke material. Whether you are working in nonwovens, paper, film, foil or laminates of these materials, Quickdraft equipment is specifically designed and selected to match your requirements and product type, and to minimize energy consumption. Static electricity, abrasive materials, exposed adhesives, fibrous or brittle materials are all potential problems that could result in conveying system plugs. We have solutions to these issues that will result in such a successful and reliable system that you may even forget it exists. Applications range from an eductor unit alongside a slitter/winder conveying edge trims to a nearby collection bin to complete in-plant centralized trim and broke handling systems. If your material is recyclable or can be reclaimed or re-used in your process, we can provide baling, granulating, briquetting or pelletizing systems with our equipment. In addition, we can address worker and environmental concerns such as noise reduction and dust filtration. Quickdraft is the dependable, maintenance-free way to get the job done.
