Eastern European converter more than doubles BOPP output

Bulgaria's leading oriented polypropylene film converter, Plastchim-T, has more than doubled its output and added to its value proposition with the installation and recent start-up of its second BOPP film line. Plastchim-T (Aksakovo) added a 6.6m-wide line from Brückner (Siegsdorf, Germany) to the 4.2m line from the company that it has been running since 2004.

Eastern European converter more than doubles BOPP output

Output from the new line is more than 400m of bioriented PP (BOPP) film per minute, for an annual output of about 18,000 tons. The line includes a twin-screw extrusion system and direct drives as well as Brückner's patented LIWEB linear-motor edge guide system, said to help ensure higher line uptime, and the LIWIND-system for high-speed film winding.

According to Brückner, the new BOPP line is the most energy efficient one in Europe. On its 4.2m-wide line, Plastchim-T is processing plain, coex, and metalizable film. The new line gives it the ability to also convert white opaque and pearlized films. —[email protected]
