Extrusion Lines
for Flat Film

Film thicknesses from 100 µm to 10 mm
Final film widths up to 2100 mm

Making film extrusion profitable


Since many years esde is specialized in design and construction of flat film extrusion lines.  Our offer is aimed on film manufacturers who use their own formulations and produce specific measures and qualities.


Exactly tuned to your product the extrusion line can individually be customized.  Together with you we develop the suitable line conception, if it needs to be a flexible small batch production or a high performance extrusion line, if manual or automated, we will always keep the efficiency in mind.

Components of esde Flat Film Extrusion Lines

  • esde Extruders reliably process thermo plastic materials in virgin condition (granules) or as regrind (flakes).
  • We build extruders for output achievements up to 1300 kg/h.
  • You can choose between a universally or a specially designed screw.
  • Multi-layer films can be produced with additional co-extruders and a feedblock.
  • The control is carried out by comfortable touch-screen technology with multilingual, logical user guidance and minimal training effort.
  • esde Extruders can additionally be equipped with gravimetric dosing station, degassing system, screen changer and melt pump.
  • For slit widths up to 2300 mm, this is equivalent to the final film width of 2100 mm.
  • esde Dies for flat film lines can be supplied for thicknesses from 100 µm to 10 mm.
  • Optionally it is possible to reduce the slit width with an external deckling up to 100 mm/each side.
  • esde Polishing Stacks are responsible for the perfect surface finish and uniform film thickness. The roll temperature on its overall contact surface to the film is very even, the cooling is steplessly adjusted to the required heat.
  • Our Polishing Stacks are equipped with an integrated haul-off unit.  Deviations in thickness of the incoming melt are balanced by a pneumatic or hydraulic interlocking device. The surfaces of the rolls are executed as desired by the customer (for example chromium plated, matted or embossed).
  • The base frames of the Polishing Stacks are electrically motivated (optional also with two axles) to ease maintenance and cleaning procedures.
  • Optionally the esde Polishing Stacks can be equipped with a rapid-change system for the rolls.
  • One-point winders for a cost-saving solution
  • Automatic turret winders with cross-cutting unit
  • Double-winders for 2 film webs
  • Edge-strip winders with the option of material recycling

Optional Component Parts

  • Feedblock
  • Lamination Unit
  • Edge-strip Cutter
  • Longitudinal Cutter for separation into various webs/strips
  • Film accumulator

Operating Concept of the esde Flat Film Extrusion Lines

The operating surface of our Flat Film Extrusion Lines has a user-friendly and clear structure.  We use a comfortable Touch-Screen Technology with logical user guidance.  The training effort for the operators is minimal as no programming knowledge is required.


The operating elements are positioned on the extruder and, if needed on further line components, positioning as desired by the customer.


All the relevant processing data can easily be read and adjusted. The control is upgradable with production data acquisition, an intersection to the Desktop PC and the possibility of remote control by our electrical engineers.
