Film Calenders

Film Calenders

A Calender employs two or more steel rolls that close under pressure to smooth, compress and in some cases partially bond material's film. They can be employed in an ‘off line’, converting setting or in an integrated production facility. Alliance machines in use today range from over 260” wide to less than 12” wide. Each designed for a specific application.
