Modular Film Analyser (MFA)

The OCS Modular Film Analyser (MFA) is used for the continuous cooling, stripping and winding of extruded polymer film. In combination with a variety of different measuring instruments, a wide range of applications for the analysis of different sample materials is covered.

In addition to the Film Surface Analyser (FSA100V2/FSA200V2) for optical quality control of the polymer film, online spectroscopy, the measurement of haze and transmission as well as gloss and thickness can be integrated. This allows the combination of a tailor-made and yet economical solution.


  • Modular architecture for customer-specific configuration with different measurement devices
  • Homogeneous, yet fast tempering of the polymer melt
  • Wide control range of film speed and tensile force for adaptation to a large variety of sample materials
  • Intuitive operation via Touch Panel
  • Simple winding change thanks to pneumatic winding mandrel
  • Comprehensive alarm and status monitoring for autonomous operation


  • OCS Modular Film Analyser with one/two Chill Roll(s) (MFA-CR)
    – OCS Cast Film Line or OCS Tape Line (SSA)
  • OCS Modular Film Analyser with Blown Film Tower (MFA-BFT)
    – OCS Blown Film Line
  • OCS Modular Film Analyser with Calender (MFA-Calender)
    – OCS Tape Line (TQA)
