Enhanced profitability for China’s plastics and packaging industry
At Chinaplas 2014 the members of the Brückner Group will be presenting the latest solutions for enhanced productivity, quality and optimised energy efficiency in the Chinese plastics and packaging industries at their booth Hall E1 / Booth K01.
Brückner Maschinenbau: Various line concepts for specialty films
Upcoming trends lead to more demand for innovative oriented specialty films in packaging as well as technical applications. New markets exhibit high growth rates, also driven by political factors such as the trend towards less raw material usage or renewable energy in the form of photovoltaic panels or electric mobility. For the production of added value specialty films in such areas Brückner will present various line concepts and latest technological developments that help Chinese film producers to diversify and enlarge their portfolio:
- Production lines for high-barrier BOPP films in 5, 7 or 9 layers
- BOPET lines for the production of various optical applications up to 400µm
- In-line and off-line technologies for trendy shrink sleeves with high-value appearance made of PET-G, PS or PP
- Simultaneous LISIM technology with very specific, adjustable film properties for thinnest BOPP and BOPET capacitor films below 3µm as well as finest quality BOPA film and others
- Dedicated line concepts for the growth market of photovoltaic applications such as UV-resistant solar back sheet
- Advanced production lines with patented EVAPORE process for unmatched efficient, high output and consistent quality of battery separator film for 3C and EV applications
Efficient and energy-saving stretching lines for commodity film production
Besides the trend towards specialty films the demand for commodity films in China is still strong. Brückner’s high yield unique stretching lines offer the highest productivity within the industry: Up to 10.4 m working width, 525 m/min speed and an annual output of over 55,000 tons enable film producers to benefit from considerably reduced production costs and improved profitability.
Additionally Chinese film producers will get to know how to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions – in line with industry needs and the current Chinese five-year development plan. To name two of Brückner’s solutions: the special torque control of clips for simultaneous lines, reducing energy consumption by 40% or the new high speed extrusion system with lower radiation and convection losses.
