MESIM (MEchanical SIMultaneous): unique properties in specific plastic films
The patented MESIM technology is a mechanical simultaneous film stretching process for the production of biaxially oriented films with special properties and outstanding quality. The film can be oriented in machine direction with ratios between 0.6 and 7 for controlled relaxation or stretching, while in transverse direction it can be stretched between 1 and 10. The ANDRITZ MESIM technology is the only concept available that is capable of producing film at 45° stretching orientation at highest precision. In addition, the unique design of the chains-clips-system accounts for utmost energy efficiency of these simultaneous stretching machines.
The innovative MESIM design is very user-friendly and has low maintenance costs. It enables producers of biaxially oriented films to generate very attractive returns. These films fit perfectly for such growing markets as LCD screens, technical films, or high-value food and non-food packaging.
The ANDRITZ Biax team is a part of international technology Group ANDRITZ with headquarters in Graz, Austria, and provides many benefits to customers with regard to technology, process know-how, and order execution.
