New MDO unit supplied to a customer in USA
 
The Machine Direction Orientation or MDO unit is made for stretching of films in one direction and it has a multitude of heated rolls with variable speeds in order to obtain the required stretching rate. The maximum stretching of a film is 10 times (depending on film type). This MDO unit can be positioned in line or off line as an individual unit. It is suitable to be used for both single as well as multi layer films of various resin types.

The line shown here is a co-ex chill roll line for up to 5 layers film. The MDO unit is here placed near the end of the line and is followed only by a wind up unit with edge cutters. The same MDO unit is also being used for a 5-layers co-ex film blowing line and the unit can easily be moved from one line to another.
