Brückner at K 2007

Thanks to all customers and friends for visiting our booth


The great number of visitors at the Brückner booth during K 2007 show demonstrated the interest of the international film industry in our solutions, technologies and services.


For Brückner the K 2007 has been the highlight of a very successful year. In the field of film stretching technology, Brückner succeeded in obtaining the most orders by far: twenty-five supply contracts, 19 of which for complete stretching lines, have been concluded through October and have already become effective. This further documents the confidence customers have acquired in the solidity and innovation which Brückner embodies actively and constantly.


In numerous conversations with film producers, converters and raw material suppliers our dialogue partners valued our competence in all fields of film stretching technology. Aside from our huge number of references in BOPP we could demonstrate our know-how in BOPET, BOPA, turnkey solutions and speciality films. The visitors at the booth also had a look at Brückner`s extensive consultancy services, our absolute reliable commissionings, new developments of film types out of our technology center or the latest LISIM® simultaneous technology for high end packaging film.


Brückner Formtec`s efficient Cast PP and PET sheet extrusion lines were met with great response by film manufacturers worldwide. Further highlight was the cast-PET technology that can reach a capacity of up to 5,000kg of APET sheet per hour.


Brückner Servtec demonstrated how their comprehensive service products increase film manufacturers` productivity and profitability. The visitors at the K show appreciated solutions such as speed upgrade for enhanced output, the manufacturing management system MMS and the unique tele-service.


Also in the focus of lively discussions:

The new state-of the-art 8.2 m BOPP line has been producing specialty multilayer films from the very first day. 

BIMO`s second LISIM® line: For the flexible production of added value speciality 3- and 5-layer films Italian producer BIMO ordered their second LISIM® production line just before the K show. Output: 3,200 kg/, width: 7.2m, speed: 400m/min.

Production lines for optical applications: Brückner offers clean room suitable sequential and simultaneous technologies for the production of these films – mostly used for the fast growing flat panel display market.



Besides the mere business the visitors loved to watch Brückner`s new movie Stretching the limits - a deeper insight”, an exciting virtual flight through a production line. Their unisonous statement: “We have never before seen the stretching process like that.”


At Brückner`s booth party nearly 200 guests from the film producing industry, as well as from resin and equipment suppliers, converters or printers exchanged views and ideas in a relaxed atmosphere – and of course had a lot of fun too!
