Extrusion Lines
for Inline

Film thicknesses from 250 to 2500 µm
Final film widths from 500 to 1000 mm

Inline Production of Film Extrusion and Thermoforming

esde Extrusion Lines for thermoforming film and sheets are especially designed for deep-drawn products, such as cups and trays and many more. 


The core module of the esde Extrusion Line for thermoforming film is the special inline polishing stack.  Here the film web is cooled only to the suitable temperature and directly fed into the thermoforming machine for further processing.  This eliminates the complete cooling of the film before winding as well as the reheating of the film in the thermoformer.


The advantages are the simplified logistics and the enormous reduction in energy demands.  


The Polishing Stack of such an Extrusion Line for Thermoforming is equipped with an integrated haul-off unit to maintain the core heat in the deep-drawn film.  The base frame of the polishing stack is electrically driven in order to ease maintenance and cleaning procedures.

The Advantages of esde Extrusion Lines for thermoforming film and sheets

  • Tailor-made lines for the extrusion of deep-drawn film
  • Synchronized to the thermoforming machine
  • High-capacity film extrusion on a high-quality level
  • Extreme energy saving machine concept
  • Solid, durable design
  • Simple handling and easy operability
  • Low maintenance and long life
  • Extrusion Lines „Made in Germany“ – designed and built in Westphalia

Components of esde Extrusion Lines for Inline-Thermoforming

  • esde Extruders reliably process thermoplastic 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.
  • The control is carried out by comfortable touch-screen technology with multilingual, logical user guidance and therefore minimal training effort.
  • esde Extruders can additionally be equipped with gravimetric dosing station, degassing system, screen changer melt pump.
  • The new extruder generation is specialized in the processing of PP.
  • Output achievements are up to 700 kg/h at 40 mm screw diameter
  • esde High-Speed Extruders have a compact design.
  • Achievement of  excellent homogenous melt at a short dwelling time of 5 to 7 seconds.
  • For slit widths up to 1200 mm maximal - equivalent to the final film width of 1000 mm.
  • esde Dies for deep-drawn film are available for thicknesses from a minimum of 250 µm upwards.
  • Feedblocks for the extrusion of multi-layer films.
  • 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 stepless 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 frame of the Polishing Stacks is electrically motivated (optional also with two axles) to ease maintenance and cleaning procedures.
  • Optionally the Polishing Stacks can be equipped with a rapid-change system for the rolls.

Operating Concept of the esde Extrusion Lines for Thermoforming

The operating surface of our Extrusion Lines for Thermoforming 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.
