One of the largest manufacturers of BOPP and CPP films in the world, Taghleef Industries, headquartered in Dubai U.A.E., and Brückner Servtec joined their forces once again in a comprehensive electrical upgrade project at one of their three BOPP lines at the site in Dubai.

State-of-the-art dosing control system with Disocont ® electronics by Schenk for better user-friendliness

New die bolt temperature control from PSG with compact high-precision control modules and a direct link to Profibus (Process Field Bus) for increased reliability

Optimization and tuning of all drives for improved performance and easier maintenance

Replacement of the control system with the latest Siemens S7 control system and with it a complete check of all line functions. The new control system is much more user-friendly, ensures spare-parts availability and optimizes all functions of the film production process which saves time and material.

Taghleef Industries is highly satisfied with the results of the project. Mr. Lee Matheson, Project Manager at Taghleef Industries, says: “The project teams have shown an outstanding performance. Due to Brückner’s remarkable expertise in upgrades and the smooth cooperation between Taghleef Industries and Brückner the line was up and running again with a stable production much earlier than scheduled. Brückner’s technical staff gave us a lot of additional assistance in optimizing the line’s parameters. This project made clear once more that time is an essential factor in business: the more we can save, the better it is for us – and with Brückner at our side, we save a lot!”
