Plastic and rubber production machinery requires the precise control of pressure,
position, temperature and other parameters. Airline meets the demands of this industry by providing the hydraulic systems and controls required by both new machinery manufacturers and end users who need to upgrade existing machines. The latest hydraulic technology allows injection molding, blow molding and other plastic and rubber processing machines to run faster cycle times, with maximum repetitive accuracy, less scrap and greater energy efficiency.
From variable frequency drives and servo hydraulic pumps to high performance
electro-hydraulic proportional valves, Airline has what you need for a wide variety
of plastic production and processing equipment including injection molding, blow
molding, rotomolding, thermoforming presses, winding and materials handling equipment.
Decades of experience in manufacturing also uniquely
qualifies Airline to support your top priorities for productivity, quality, safety,
energy efficiency and cost savings. Over the years, we’ve helped hundreds of
manufacturers redesign their machines to be safer, more precise, and easier to
Get more capabilities and flexibility in open- and closed-loop control, including the ability
to nest loops. The VT-HACD series controllers are available in application-specific
configurations to give you fast designs, quick changeovers, and precise control.
The controllers significantly simplify machine design and operations, especially when used
with Rexroth proportional valves.
These variable speed pump drives combine the reliability of powerful hydraulics and energy
efficiency and dynamics of compact electronics. Using Bosch Rexroth Sytronix hydraulic
drives can reduce power consumption by up to 80 percent, while maintaining the same level
of productivity. Additionally hydraulic drive noise emissions can be reduced by up to 20
dB (A), cooling requirements are greatly reduced and the overall life of the hydraulic drive
HYDAC "CA" Series compact power units are highly efficient in both performance and size.
The units are specially constructed with oil-immersed pump-motor assemblies. In addition,
modular valve packages are available to suit your needs. These short-term or intermittent
duty-rated units offer practical solutions for a wide variety of unique applications.
This group manufactures highly engineered high-pressure ball valves, which guarantee safe
and reliable operation. A complete range of DIN 3015 clamps for mounting hoses, tubes, and
pipes is complemented by specialty and completely custom mounting solutions. Additional
components for completing hydraulic systems include: reservoir accessories, fluid level
gauges and sensors, bell housings, couplings and damping elements.
Efficient work can only be done with well-protected machines. With GSM safety fences your
operators, or the operators of your customers, get the highest level of safety. Constructed
of welded steel frames for incredible stability and durability. Quick connect assembly
system saves time and reduces labor. Systems available in a variety of heights and widths.
Rapidly eliminate static electricity from plastic films, injection molds, and packaging
materials. Bar ionizers direct ionized air particles toward the work zone with compressed
air. Low maintenance electrode needle cartridges minimize contamination and are replaceable.
Available sensors optimize ion balance or reversed polarity to reduce elimination time.
Protect sensitive electronics with the low-amplitude Dual AC type.
Ross Controls designed and built this unique valve package with high pressure and a low
pressure air inlet, individual outlet ports to each head and an internal check valve to
prevent backflow from the high pressure side to the low pressure side. The valve elements
are our proven high speed poppet internals and are contained in a compact, easily mountable
design that facilitates easy removal for repair and replacement.
Control Solution for Plastic Film Winding Machine
Davis Standard, a well-known manufacturer of plastic extruding equipment, asked Airline Hydraulics
for a control solution for their high-end plastic film winding machines. Davis Standard already
had a winding system that offered good pressure control. But they wanted to accommodate larger
roll diameters and needed a pressure control system that could meet the challenge of maintaining
consistent tension on the roll, even with this diameter and weight change.
With the help of Airline and Bosch Rexroth, Davis Standard was able to greatly improve the output
and quality of their machines. Now the process is more productive and makes less waste. This is
a great example of how Airline partners with its vendors to combine their technical expertise
and collaboratively identify a solution for the customer.
