Tape Line (TCA®)

The OCS Tape Line Type TCA® is used for testing transparent polymer films (tape). It consists of the OCS Measuring Extruder (ME) and the OCS Modular Film Analyser with Calender (MFA-Calender). Our calendaring system has been specially developed for the wire and cable industry. It presses and cools the extruded polymer film (tape) from both sides, thus ensuring a smooth and consistent surface thickness for optical anlysis.

The Tape Quality Analyser (TQA100) contains a high-resolution camera system that detects contaminants, gels, black specks, fibres and metal particles. The detected errors are marked by the LASER Marking System (LM100) or the Label Printer (LP100). The polymer film is then cut into strips using the OCS Film Cutter and Sorter (OFC100) and sorted into appropriate containers. Additional physical, chemical and optical test systems can be integrated on customer request.
