The Necking Machine is designed to neck down balloon tubes.
The tube is pulled through a heated die and reduced to a defined diameter. The die is split into two parts to enable easy loading. The final diameter of the tube can be changed by adjusting the following parameters: die diameter, temperature, speed and sensor position.
The parameters of every product can be stored as recipe in order to achieve reproducibility. The machine provides fast process time and precisely repeatable lengths, even with larger tube dimensions which are difficult to process on hot air neck down systems.
