Stretching polymer materials modifies their range of properties in a number of ways – relating to their mechanical properties, diffusion behaviour and optical properties. In combination with fillers and additives, completely new materials are created. Especially high-performance plastics in connection with nanofillers, offer a wide field of research and development. For all established procedures, Collin supplies lines for mono-axial stretching (MDO) and biaxial stretching (TDO) for research and development up to pilot production in the well-known precision and quality.
With our TDO, as biaxial, discontinuous stretching process, the touch screen control allows programming of arbitrary stretching sequences, between which heating and cooling cycles can be run. This exactly simulates all production processes. The control logs all machine and process parameters and automatically delivers test protocols.
