Unlocking Potential: Automatic Film Cylinder Cleaning Protects Operators, Hands-Free Before Injury Strikes

Film extruders increasingly recognized the benefits of investing in automation to replace the traditionally time-consuming process of cleaning chilled rollers and the disruption to production. But, from Baldwin’s experience, while extruders recognize the danger of manual cleaning, taking the proactive step to employ automation to prevent operator injury is not always a priority.

On this episode of Baldwin’s Unlocking Potential Podcast, Host Tyler Kern talked with Bob Baillargeon, Business Development Manager and Sales at Baldwin America. They talked about how Baldwin can help with automation, process improvement, and how automatic cleaning systems can consistently and efficiently clean film cylinders.

Many of the calls Baldwin receives for its automated film cylinder cleaner come urgently when film extruders are expected to react to such a tragedy, which is more common than many realize.

“At first, you wouldn’t think it’s dangerous, but when you go into these plants, and you actually see the extrusion lines, and you see the position these operators need to go into and how close they are to 500-degree dye,” Baillargeon said.

Baldwin offers an array of automation and process improvement technologies that help film extruders supply higher quality results faster and with increased safety.

Baldwin has been manufacturing surface cleaning technologies for decades in the print industry.
