Plastchim-T upgrades BOPP line to produce more specialty film

19 Mar 2019

The Bulgarian film manufacturer Plastchim-T will upgrade their 6,6 m line to 5-layer film production. This upgrade will enlarge Plastchim-T`s product portfolio with a wide variety of higher value quality films. The production of specialty films at existing, smaller lines with lower output is a suitable alternative to the tremendously increased worldwide production capacity of commodity films.

Brückner Servtec will equip the BOPP line with a gravimetric batch dosing system, two additional single screw co-extruders and a state-of-the-art 5-layer die.
Of course, the new components will be fully integrated in the existing IPC system. The line modification is scheduled for the fourth quarter 2019.

Plastchim-T is one of the leading privately owned European manufacturers of biaxially oriented polypropylene films (BOPP), cast polypropylene films (CPP) and flexible packaging products (www.plastchim-t.com). They have a broad portfolio of Brückner BOPP lines in working widths of 4,2 m, 6,6 m, 8,7 m and also the world-record 10,4 m BOPP line with a speed of 600 m/min, installed in 2018. The 5-layer upgrade fits perfectly into their strategy of a machinery park with the highest flexibility to fast changing markets` demands. It is another investment in the future and makes the line fit for many years to come.
