Spanish term or phrase:en globo/en plano
The text is about a film/shrink-wrap production company and the context is:
"Gracias a ella ha puesto en marcha en Asturias la planta de fabricación más moderna del mundo, en la que se sustituye el tradicional sistema *en globo* de biorientación de las poliolefinas por un sistema propio *en plano* que permite mejorar la capacidad de producción, aumentar el ancho del film hasta 6 metros y garantizar espesores uniformes con errores menores de media micra."
I have been unable to find 'sistema en globo'. Is it referring to 'blowing'? I've sent an e-mail to the client asking them if they could explain the process. This is my translation as it stands at the moment:
Thanks to this, it has opened the most modern manufacturing plant in the world, where the traditional *blowing system* for bi-orientation of polyolefins has been replaced by our own *flat system*, which makes it possible to improve the production capacity, increase the width of the film up to 6 metres and guarantee uniform thicknesses with errors of less than half a micron.
