COLLIN Lab & Pilot Solutions With headquarters in the Bavarian city of Maitenbeth, COLLIN develops intelligent pilot and laboratory lines in modular system for plastic processing companies as well as for research institutes. The owner-managed company has been in business for more than 45 years and, as premium provider, the company sets worldwide technical and qualitative standards. Collin solutions are used for the development and the production of plastic products, material analysis, test series up to pilot tests which allow a scale up to production scale. As part of the product lines Teach Line, Lab Line, Pilot Line, Medical Line and Polytest Line, Collin develops individual solutions – platen presses, roll mills, calenders, extruders, compounders, mono or coextrusion lines, pressure filter tests, rheometers or optical inspection systems. Material manufacturers, compounding companies, film manufacturers, companies in the medical, pharmaceutical and industrial sector, universities, laboratories and research institutes count on COLLIN.
Especially under the product line Polytest Line, COLLIN offers a comprehensive range of test systems – from online viscometer via different pressure filter tests up to the latest coup, a fully-automatic all in one control system for granulates and powder.
• Rheometer – comprehensive 24 hours determination of the melt viscosity
• Multi-Inspection – all-round quality control mechanically, rheologically, optically
• Film Inspection – test system for the inline detection of optical errors in films
With the latest COLLIN product innovation, the engineering company again shows its competence regarding lines for quality tests. The advantage for the customers is that the test systems are fully automatic and can measure numerous parameters, either individually as machine or together as line:
• 1 line for checking size, shape, contamination & colour
• Compact lines for high throughputs
• Stand-alone machines or flexibly extendable to a line
During the last months, the Collin team has systematically been further developing the Teach Line product line. The series of compact table-top machines includes for example compounders, extruders, blown and flat film lines but also roll mills or pelletizers. These machines are used for apprenticeship, R & D but also for the production of special films.
The generation 2 presents itself in a new ergonomic design including the completely digital operation, control and 7” touch display CMI 7. The series is equipped with the latest safety features. SPS controlled and fully FECON capable, all parameters are controlled and evaluated online. As option, the table-top machines can be operated with 480V and 60 Hz.
