spiral-baffled mirror-finish rolls are used with rotary unions for liquid cooling or heating. The system has a 3-hp ac flux vector motor drive with a 1000:1 turndown ratio and 500-pound-per-linear-inch nip pressure from the air cylinders. Also available are optional items including a gear pump front-end attachment, edge-trim devices, payoff stations for lamination, winder or guillotine, and coextrusion packages.
