Machine Direction Orientation MDO Turn-Key Line < $300K

Low-cost high quality Roll-to-Roll (R2R) MDO machine for R&D and pilot scale production of functional polymer film. Most turn-key MDO lines cost <$300K with 7-10 heated rollers.
  • Either Vertical Design or Horizontal Design.
  • Can be integrated with single layer or multi-layer extrusion machines.
  • Strong in-house engineering capability for special applications:
    • Machines can be configured and designed based on customers' specifications such as number of rollers, type of rollers, temperature range, width, line speed, etc.
    • Can be modified for roll-to-roll (R2R) processing of special products by adding in-line coating, printing, lamination, UV curing, etc for flexible electronics, wearable electronics, solar cell, OLED, battery, etc.
    • Smaller and narrower machines can be designed for developing expensive polymer film products.
  • Lab-scale research and development of functional polymer films
  • Pilot scale production of functional polymer films
  • Pilot Line in the US for trial/tour before purchasing.

Horizontal Machine Direction Orientation Machine


  1. The horizontal structure is easy to expand and convenient to thread the film, more suitable for pilot and small-scale production.
  2. Preheat roller, stretching roller, annealing roller and cooling roller are independently driven by servo motor, with better speed control accuracy.
  3. Stretch roller gap adjustable, can achieve "zero pitch" stretch, reduce necking effect.
  4. Single, double (or even multi-point) stretch optional, adjustable stretch ratio.
  5. Oil / electric heating optional: oil heating. Temperature uniformity, and electric heating can obtain higher process temperature.
  6. High-performance PLC with 10-inch touch screen, high control accuracy, more convenient operation.
 Machines available in State College, PA for customer test.

        Plastic and rubber processing machines produced by the best manufacturers in China are now offered to customers in North America by PolyK with US-based customer support: While high-speed production machines made in China are still lag behind these made in Germany, the lab-scale and pilot-scale processing machines made in China now offer similar quality at much lower cost and faster deliver time than their peers in Germany.
        Similar to these made in Europe and US, as shown in the pictures of PolyK website, these Chinese processing machines also have
  1. Integrated modern control system with European/US brand PLC and temperature controllers and interlock safety features. Most of them have touch-screen control panel.
  2. The performance has been verified by many local and global customers as the original manufacturer sell more than 100 machines/year and accumulated lots of field experience -- significantly more than their peers in the west.
  3. In addition to 30%-70% cost saving, many machines can be delivered in less than three months (including ocean freight) and you do not need to wait for one year to use your new machine.
        These machines have been sold to many universities and the R&D division of large companies in Asia, Africa, East Europe, Middle East, and South America. Now PolyK is introducing them to customers in the US/Canada. 

--- You may find other Chinese manufacturers offering even lower price than us, but with poor quality due to their poor technical capability and the use of low-cost steel/controllers to cut cost  -- some of them are produced by duplicating our design. Our plastic and rubber processing machines are all designed by our engineers and they may cost more than others, but we promise to use the best construction materials and reliable controllers. We also have the engineering capability to tailor design the machines based on your special requirement.
