A leading film producer in Southeast Asia, A.J. Plast, and Brückner Maschinenbau have one of the longest-lasting partnerships in the BO industry. Their latest 15th film production line from Brückner is a 5-layer, 10.4 meters wide BOPP line with a line speed of 600 meters per minute and an hourly output of 7.5 tonnes.
Not only the production efficiency is highlighted in this project but also the important step toward net-zero emission of its kind technology in energy saving and carbon reduction to enhance environmental sustainability. This technology could reduce utility energy consumption drastically while simultaneously reducing water usage. The newly designed double air heat exchanger in the oven process is also elevated to preheat fresh air and to push energy recycling to a new level.
A.J. Plast owner Kittiphat Suthisamphat says: “With our new line we increase productivity and reduce our energy consumption at the same time. That’s two of our major goals for our future film production focusing on environmental sustainability – and with Brückner at our side we will reach them.”
Xaver Sedlmeier, Sales Director at Brueckner Group Asia-Pacific: “We are very proud of this new project. In close cooperation we have designed a film stretching line that is completely tailored to the needs of A.J. Plast and the needs of the markets. It is always a pleasure to master challenging projects with the A.J. Plast team."
