BOPET – Improve productivity, reduce energy consumption

Brückner Maschinenbau at Plastindia 2018 – Stand 1236

Bruckner Maschinenbau film stretching line

At Plastindia 2018, in Gandhinagar from 7 to 11 February, Brückner Maschinenbau will present up-to-date solutions for film producers on the Indian Subcontinent. Brückner Maschinenbau’s latest 10.4 meter technology aims at improved overall profitability with what is claimed to be the highest output and productivity currently available for BOPET films. In addition, the company promises optimal production stability, minimized operating costs per unit output, and reduced specific energy consumption. All this is without any compromise to the unique BOPET film properties achievable with Brückner’s technology.

At Plastindia Brückner will also present proven benchmarks in the BOPET film industry, such as the use of advanced twin screw extrusion technology for improved melt quality, also eliminating energy-consuming crystallisation and drying of the resin. Another highlight will be MD stretching technology for stretching ratios above 4.5, leading to highly coveted isotropic film properties.

Highest BOPP speeds in the industry

Brückner’s high yield BOPP lines offer the utmost productivity — up to 10.4 meters working width, 600 meters a minute production speed and an annual output of up to 60,000 tons.PlastIndia logo 1 Several innovations are the basis for this, such as newly developed sliding materials that are available for the chain track systems that reduce lubrication oil consumption by more than 50%. All developments have their focus on higher efficiency, reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance efforts, and less consumables – hence on higher profits by selling top-quality films.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
