“The take-off is particularly user-friendly thanks to optimised accessibility of the components. We have done away with the separate control cabinet for the AKHN-B. This design means that the rollers can be changed in the shortest possible time and makes carrying out maintenance and cleaning work very convenient,” explains Michael Buchauer, Managing Director at Hosokawa Kolb. The modular construction allows it to be designed for different requirements: The working width of the AKHN-B ranges from 1300 mm to 2600 mm as standard and can be optionally extended to 3200 mm. The take-off speed ranges from 150 m per minute to peak values of 300 m per minute. The new take-off also earns high marks for its low overall height. In order to optimise the flatness and further improve the film quality, the version is also optionally available with an S-Wrap 1, S-Wrap 2 and S-Wrap 4 tempering unit. In terms of maintenance, the new AKHN-B take-off makes a strong showing: Easy access to the interior through the sliding doors, a smaller number of crossbars in the frame as well as the decentralised drive concept make the take-off more maintenance-friendly than previous models.
