The K5000 metallizer is an innovative machine designed to meet the demands of today's plastic film metallizing industry. Higher quality coatings produced at higher production rates give the owner of the K5000 a distinct advantage in today's marketplace.

Cycle Time

Cycle Time

Higher Productivity

The K5000 metallizer outputs more tonnes of metallized film per hour than its closest competitor. The machine has a base coating speed of 720m/min for 2.2OD. It is able to handle up to 1200mm diameter reels, proportionately reducing the effect of non-metallizing time in the production cycle. The K5000 metallizer also consumes lower levels of electricity and aluminium wire per square metre of metallized film produced.

Ease of use

Reducing the amount of non coating time is key to increasing a metallizer's productivity. Making easier each task that the operator has to perform reduces downtime. · The K5000's higher collection efficiency means less aluminium to clean · Its smooth surfaces are easier to clean · The innovative edge shields are easier and faster to set up · Reduced noise levels mean a more relaxed, safer environment with fewer mistakes · Comprehensive maintenance and trouble shooting screens make it easier to keep the metallizer working at peak output

Coating Quality

World leading plasma treatment units give the K5000 metallizer the ability to coat with better WVTR, OTR and adhesion than other machines. Winding quality is maintained due to loadcell control and servo driven unwind and rewind layarms. The layarms can work in gap or contact mode. The gap can be set at any desired value and automatically maintained.
