Though still running strong, an almost 20-year-old film laminating line needed a helping hand to meet increased demand. As a result, food packaging processor C-P Flexible Packaging added another line from Davis-Standard to its arsenal.

"Over half of our business is in extrusion lamination, so the addition of this line was essential," says Mike Takis, engineering manager at C-P. Prior to the recent installation, C-P was running all extrusion laminations on an existing Black Clawson (Fulton, NY) line; Black Clawson is a Davis-Standard brand. Other processors now can view the new line, installed in late 2009, as C-P is allowing Davis-Standard to bring customers into its plant to see the system.
According to the processor, the new line primarily is seeing use for its customers in the snack food industry. It produces laminated structures comprised of extruded polyethylene between two films, including OPP and PET. The films can be clear, printed or metalized.—[email protected]
