K 2016 – After the exhibition, Collin will start with the construction works for the new premises:

After the K 2016, Collin will start the next big project - new construction of the parent company at a new location, not far from the existing headquarters in Germany.

Due to the very positive cooperation with the municipality and the former owners, a 25,000 spm plot in the German city of Maitenbeth could be found. In the first phase, in the coming months, on 15,000 sqm, 4000 sqm Collin manufacturing area and 2300 sqm office space will be built. In spring, the ground-breaking ceremony will take place, the construction is planned for the next eight to nine months. “The relocation is planned for the end of 2017“, says DI Dr. Friedrich Kastner, CEO Collin.     

“The main reason for the new construction is that at our current location, we are running out of space. There are neither expansion options for the existing company building nor the option to buy a neighbouring plot since there is no open land left. Furthermore, the building stock is out of date. Therefore, this decision was absolutely necessary“, explains Kastner.   
 
„In the new premises, our customers and employees should feel comfortable. Thus, our team does not only have more space in production and administration. Together, all internal processes have been analysed in order to create an optimal structure, which will help us to manufacture our products in best quality and with short delivery times.  Also the Collin technical centre, the test laboratory and our R&D will get more space. Finally, we will be able to show even more out of our range of products to our customers“, says Kastner.  

“With the new location, also in future, we are perfectly prepared and regarding space, we are more flexible“, gladly explains Kastner.

K 2016 – Collin presents new product division: Polytest Line for quality control during extrusion

Collin uses the K 2016 for the presentation of its new product division – the Polytest Line. This comprises measuring devices for quality control during production processes, i .e. the continuous evaluation of extrusion and melt quality.

“For this new line, we have developed a variety of innovations. Our aim was to clearly show and develop our competence in this field”, says DI Dr. Friedrich Kastner, CEO Collin.

During the K, Collin shows the innovation multi-inspection, the automatic pressure filter test with autosampler, the online viscometer and the COFIS film inspection:

Innovation Multi-Inspection – absolutely new on the world market
„The innovation multi-inspection of our product line Polytest Line is used for analysing different plastics and mixtures but also for the processing of virgin materials, compounds, masterbatches or the analysis of recycled plastics material. Our aim was to develop and manufacture a compact, robust and cost-efficient online measuring device. The modular design of the measuring system allows the adaptation of the measuring methods to the corresponding requirements of our customers”, explains Kastner.

The Collin multi-inspection system generally includes three main modules – a rheological melt characterization, an optical film inspection and a mechanical film test:
·    
Real-time control of the melt viscosity with the MVR, iV-value or the apparent viscosity
·     Statistic error detection (gels, black spots, …) on the film
·     Colour monitoring on the film by CIE L*a*b system
·     Detection of foreign polymers by NIR-analysis
·     Determination of stress-strain-values during a film traction test

Via an upstream melt pump, the multi-inspection system is provided with a constant melt flow and the pressure required for the rheological characterization is generated. The compact design and the options are also convincing, since the multi-inspection can be used online directly at the extruder or offline in the laboratory.  The modular design of the multi-inspection unit allows an individual configuration of the line, however, all options of retrofitting are still available for the customer.

Automatic Pressure Filter Test with Autosampler – unique on the world market
With the automatic pressure filter test with autosampler, quality differences in a polymer caused by agglomerates, insufficiently dispersed fillers resp. contaminations can be detected – fully automatic.

“With the unique automatic material and screen changing system, at the moment, the pressure filter test can successively process 7 material samples – without system stop. Beneficial to our customers is that, with our line, downtimes and personnel costs are considerably reduced and high reproducibility is provided”, says Corné Verstraten, CSO Collin.

Online Viscometer – testing system for inline-detection of optical defects on films 
The Collin online-viscometer is used for continuous monitoring of the melt viscosity at a production extruder. Two melt pumps with only one drive ensure the continuous monitoring of the melt. Due to its compact design, the Collin Polytest Line measuring device is characterized by a high degree of automation, flexibility and a closed material cycle.

COFIS Collin Film Inspection System – high-quality testing line for error detection
The Collin Film Inspection System COFIS is a high-quality testing line, which allows a definition of up to 10 error classes by means of up to 14 error criteria. The line detects optical errors in a running flat or blown film. Between the cooling and take-off rolls, a LED light source as well as a line camera are installed. Thus, defects in the film, which have not been dispersed, can be detected and evaluated.

Furthermore, the Collin Polytest Line includes the following measuring devices: Bypass Online-Rheometer WROR & MOR, manual pressure filter test, automated pressure filter test and the COFICOS-system. Moreover, customers have the possibility to use one of the Collin test laboratories (in Germany and Norcross/USA) for testing purposes.

K 2016 - Collin „future is now“ presents a variety of highlights

12 meters of innovation – unique high-speed machine – flexible all-rounder – economical entry-level machine – comprehensive online-quality machine – compact multi-layer machines – ideal and small processing machine for small medical batches

Innovation, efficiency, economy, reproducibility, upscaling & modularity – under the slogan “future is now”, for Collin, these keywords are taking center stage during this year’s K-exhibition appearance. The company presents: Cast/calendering-MDO line with a length of 12 m, including a wealth of innovative individual components, the new E Entrance series extruder, the Collin multi-inspection, a 5-layer coextrusion line and a Collin Medical Line.

The Collin GmbH intensely deals with subjects and challenges of the plastics industry and incorporates this in its product and line development under „future is now“.  “With our know-how, we guarantee that, already today, our customers develop, test or produce their products of tomorrow”, explain DI Dr. Friedrich Kastner, CEO Colllin and Corné Verstraten, CSO Collin.

Highlight Calender-MDO line – 12 meters of innovation
Greatest highlight, in two ways, is a line with a total length of 12 m, which exactly corresponds to the Collin product philosophy of modularity, because it consists of the following, innovative and partly brand new individual components: 
·            Compounder Type ZK 25 P – with optimized throughput and torque
·            High speed Torque Extruder Type E 30 T – one of the Collin innovations 2016
·            Extruder Type E 30 P with new features/extras
·            5-layer feedblock with a 500 mm slot die
·            3-roll calender with gap control
·            Take-off unit with start-up winder and COFIS film inspection
·            MDO with double stretching gap
·            Take-off module with various features (e. g. edge cutting, film edge control) 
·            Collin turret winder, adapted to Collin lines

“So to speak, the complete line consists of Collin innovations and improvements as for example the controls for extruders, calenders, MDOs and winders. The system acquires all parameters and records them for evaluation.

For the K-show, the speed of the calender is max. 38 m/min and the MDO has a speed of max. 100 m/min., of course, higher speeds can be realized on demand. Furthermore, the line can be delivered as high-temperature version”, explain Kastner and Verstraten.

 Advantages of the Calender-MDO-line – convincing in every meter:

·     A higher degree of automation due to motor-driven gap adjustment of MDO and calender as well as the new turret winder.
·     Moreover, the motor-driven gap adjustment guarantees higher reproducibility.
·     Larger range of throughput because of the Extruder Type E 30 T. Thus, this results in a considerably larger process window.
·     Here, modularity is decisive, since, depending on the requirement, the components can be combined according to the modular principle of Collin. components can be combined according to the modular principle
·     With the new Collin auxiliary winder, which can wind both, web material and edge cutting material, starting the machine is considerably easier.
·     Furthermore, with the turret winder it is possible to keep the line running, also with long testing or production runs. Thus, process stability and reproducibility can be increased. Moreover, it is not insignificant that personnel costs can be reduced.
·     Production-related speed allows better upscale possibilities.

Special model Extruder T Torque – the unique high-speed machine
The special model high-speed Extruder Type E 30 T combines the advantages of Type P, however, its output is increased because of a higher speed and torque. “Especially for the development of screw geometry and feeder for this high-speed model, an enormous technical competence was required – for laboratory tasks, the Extruder Type T is unique”, happily say Kastner und Verstraten. The T series is also available in other Collin sizes.  

 Also our P series, driven by an innovative compact gear motor, whose drive electronics and control are directly integrated in the base frame, can be used in a wide range of applications: for R&D or production. Different types of downstream equipment can be connected to the extruder. Furthermore, depending on the customer requirement, there is a variety of supplementary equipment as well as features.

Innovation Turret Winder – the flexible all-rounder
Especially in laboratory and pilot operation, an optimal quality of the film bobbins is becoming increasingly important. On the one hand, to better predict the characteristics of the films after winding and on the other hand, to guarantee the processing with production lines.
 
“Different from classical production winders, here, versatility and flexibility are required. Different films or compounds with a different thickness have to be wound faultlessly.” Latest winding algorithms ensure that different materials with a different thickness, strength and width can be wound faultlessly. In principle, three modes are available: 1. Central winding, 2. Contact winding with adjustable pressure and 3. Gap winding with adjustable gap (0 - 300 mm).

Moreover, features of the innovation turret winder are the motor-driven lifting of the bobbin by means of the shaft, the modular design with contact slide and fly cutter as well as the very compact design.

E Entrance series Extruder – the economic entry-level machine
The E Entrance series extruder is the basic version for first steps into extrusion. Designed for laboratory operation and tests in R&D, these compact lines are an alternative to the Collin P Professional series extruder.

The E Extruder is mounted on a movable electrical cabinet, which contains the power electrics, connections and the main switch. Therefore, the Collin extruders are very compact and functional. Furthermore, Collin scores with several size versions. According to the modularity principle, the Entrance extruders can be integrated into different Collin lines.

Innovation Multi-Inspection – the comprehensive online-quality control
“The innovation multi-inspection of our product line Polytest Line is used for the analysis of recycled plastics material but also of the processing of virgin materials, compounds or masterbatches. Our aim was to develop and manufacture a compact, robust and cost-efficient online-measuring device. The modular design of the measuring system allows the adaptation of the measuring method to the corresponding requirements of our customers”, explains Kastner.

In principle, the Collin multi-inspection system contains three main modules – a rheological melt characterization, an optical film inspection and a mechanical film control:
·     Real-time monitoring of the melt viscosity in the form of the MVR, iV-value or the apparent viscosity.
·     Statistical error detection (gels, blackspots, …) in the film
·     Color monitoring in the film by CIE L*a*b system
·     Detection of external polymers by NIR analysis
·     Determination of stress-strain values in a film tensile test

 Via an upstream melt pump, the multi-inspection system is provided with a constant melt flow and the pressure required for the rheological characterization is built up. The compact design and the options to use the multi-inspection online and directly at the extruder or offline in the laboratory also convince. The modular design of the multi-inspection unit allows an individual configuration of the line, however, for the customer there are still many upgrading possibilities.

Highlight 5-layer Coextrusion Blown Film Line – the compact multi-layer line
At the K, Collin also presents a 5-layer blown film line, which, due to its compact design, finds its place in the smallest spaces. The very low material consumption is accompanied by a high degree of information – from the screening of different materials, testing masterbatches, blow-up ratio, color examination, multi-layer films to further defects in the film.

The advantage of the blown film line is that the cooling ring and the blown film die can easily be dismounted and furthermore, the 5-layer blown film die can easily be cleaned. In a modular way, the Collin line can quickly be retrofitted to a mono or 3-layer line or upgraded to up to 13 layers.

New Medical Line Extruder E 12 – the ideal and small processing machine
With the extruder E 12 x 25 D, Collin also represents a new development in the product category Medical Line. “We present a small line with the new extruder, a strand die 1 x 2 mm, a water bath, a medical belt take-off and a strand pelletizer. The advantage of the Medical Line E Extruder is, that our customers can process smallest batches”, say Kastner and Verstraten.

Besides the very good process control, extrusion at very low temperatures is possible – this is mainly essential for certain medical additives. The Collin Medical Line lines are characterized by an extreme accuracy, cGMP/FDA validated production, GAMP5 validation and quick cleaning and are generally custom-made.
