Tech/Engineering - Materials (Plastics, Ceramics, etc.) / Flat film extrusion
German term or phrase: Glättbandtechnologie
The headline is: Glättbandtechnologie bei der Flachfolienextrusion

The summary of the report is:
The cool down phase during thermoplastic processing has a decisive effect on the quality of the final product. This is particularly important for flat film and board production.

Sorry, there is no more context.

TIA for any ideas on the English term.

polishing stack technology

very much a guess, Andrea, but maybe it will give you additional ideas ...

Battenfeld TSL (ThermoSheetLine) is a universal, standardized line platform said to offer cost-efficient, complete lines for the production of thermoformable films. Polishing stack technology allows the most narrow film tolerance levels, and control systems ensure a monitored and reliable production process, co. reports. Extruder technology is specially adapted to meet film production requirements. The extrusion screws can be pulled out at the back, which is said to ensure easy handling and accommodate reduced space requirements.

That was my problem exactly -- no German hits! So pure guesswork.

roller drive technology

mir fehlt leider die Zeit, weiter zu recherchieren und über den deutschen Begriff ist wirklich nichts zu finden, vielleicht geht es um den Antrieb des Glättbandes, siehe unten angegebene Quelle
"Horizontal smoothing unit
... the roller drive technology is designed for film surfaces which show almost no chatter marks"
