COLLIN Lab & Pilot Solutions develops and manufactures intelligent pilot & laboratory lines in modular system for plastic processing companies as well as for research institutes. The solutions improve the development as well as the production of plastic products, material analysis, test series up to pilot tests which allow a scale up to production scale. Collin develops individual solutions – platen presses, roll mills, calenders, extruders, compounders, extrusion lines, filter pressure tests or inspection systems.
Press Type S particularly convinces with its quiet hydraulic aggregate, which does not run constantly. Moreover, no oil cooler is needed, resulting in a lower consumption of cooling water. Another advantage is the vertically moveable, ergonomic door. Optically, the Press Type S impresses with its futuristic, re-duced design.
These versions combine finishing calender and the chill roll and are used for the production of thin-walled or dou-ble-wall films. The 3-roll unit can be used for vertical or horizontal operation. The forces in the polishing gap can be created in a hydraulic or pneumatic way. The polishing roll is suitable for a wide range of applications such as smoothing, embossing or laminating.
The Collin compounders are suitable for the continuous melting, mixing, ho-mogenising, alloying and extruding of plastic materials.
All Collin compounders are available for co-rotating and counter-rotating ope-ration. The table-top compounder consists of a process part with a drive, set up on the electrical switch cabinet.
Under the product brand COMELT – Collin Die Solutions, the company will offer extrusion dies with accessories in a wider range. Because, for the expansion of its portfolio and in-house production depth, Collin invests in new production lines. Therefore, as of next year, the company will concentrate the complete die production in one place. „There, we pool the know-how and the experience of Collin in design and manufacture. For that, the design process is supported by latest 3D-CAD- and CFD-software.“
The Collin team has also realized many new functions and improvements for the multi-inspection - the all-round measurement system for film quality – optical, mechanical and rheological – 2. generation.
„For the multi-inspection, we have improved the ergonomics, since the measuring systems are now horizontally arranged. For that, a very compact combi-die and melt pump for rheological measurements are integrated. The new camera unit with improved LED technology guarantees higher control quality. The camera is controlled via a separate micro-controller. The evaluation of the data is made via an image processing system, which is also new. With this, we are in the high-end area of film quality control“, says DI Dr. Friedrich Kastner, CEO & Managing Partner Collin Lab & Pilot Solutions. Completely new is also our integrated FTIR based expert system, which displays the composition of samples also for operators without any spectroscopy knowledge.
During the last months, the Collin team has systematically been further developing the Teach Line product line. The series of compact table-top machines includes for example compounders, extruders, blown and flat film lines but also roll mills or pelletizers. These machines are used for apprenticeship, R & D but also for the production of special films.
The generation 2 presents itself in a new ergonomic design including the completely digital operation, control and 7” touch display CMI 7. The series is equipped with the latest safety features. SPS controlled and fully FECON capable, all parameters are controlled and evaluated online. As option, the table-top machines can be operated with 480V and 60 Hz.
