The same measurement technology as the PRO-FIL is used to measure the film tolerance. Additionally the patented PLAST-CONTROL segmented air ring is placed on top of the die which channels the standard cooling air into small segments. The volume of air flow is adjusted as needed within each segment which will correct for gauge variations during the blow-up process.
