Stuttgart, October 2021 – Brückner Maschinenbau, the world’s leading manufacturer of film stretching lines, has placed an order with Coperion for more than 50 ZSK Mc18 twin screw extruders. These will be integrated into plants for the production of flexible BOPET packaging films, which Brückner will install in China. The ZSK extruders have screw diameters ranging from 70 mm to 177 mm.

Brückner Maschinenbau’s substantial repeat order is based on many years of close cooperation with Coperion. With this order, Brückner is once again putting their trust in proven Coperion technology, which the company has already integrated into numerous film stretching lines. The ZSK extruders are used to melt the compounds that are fed into the lines. Thanks to their high torque, Coperion’s ZSK Mc18 extruders achieve very high throughput rates while maintaining low product temperatures and thus ensuring first-class product quality.

“We are very pleased that Brückner Maschinenbau is once again relying on our technology and know-how,” says Jochen Schofer, Business Segment Manager Recycling & Direct Extrusion at Coperion. “We very much appreciate this familiar, long-standing cooperation with the pioneer for plastic film lines. Our companies pursue very similar aspirations. We both develop high-quality technologies for plastics production with very high throughput rates. The efficient use of resources and high recyclability of the end products are important to us.”

Coperion is the international market and technology leader in compounding and extrusion systems, feeding and weighing technology, bulk materials handling systems and services. Coperion designs, develops, manufactures and maintains systems, machines and components for the plastics, chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and minerals industries. Within its two divisions – Polymer and Strategic Markets / Aftermarket Sales and Service – Coperion has 2,500 employees and nearly 30 sales and service companies worldwide.
