Plastics/the minimum size of gathered sheet in extruder


Dear Richard
Do you know about the best size/diameter/weight of sheet on sheet gathering system in extruder? Does it has a standard size or weight? how much should be the minimum size of gathered sheet?  

Sheet takeoff systems can be made in any configuration and size you wish. Weight is no issue if the system is designed to handle it.
