Windmoeller & Hoelscher promoted its new generation blown film line at Plastindia 2015 in Gandhinagar. Varex II blown film line is based on a modular concept that allows almost unlimited configurations. From 8m HDPE liner film to 11-layer barrier film with only a 1m EVOH layer, Varex II can produce a huge range of films.

Varex II helps in reduced resin usage, shorter start up time and changeover times as well as reduced scrap. Some other advantages of Varex II are precise metered resin feed for consistent product quality, high output air ring, high precision thickness gauge and control for minimum gauge tolerance, oscillating haul off for optimum film roll quality to name just a few.

The Varex II machine was not on display at the company stand. We do not always come with a machine. We showed our product at the last edition of Plastindia. It is not always possible, said Rakesh Shah, managing director, Windmoeller & Hoelscher India. Talking about Plastindia, Shah said that it is the country’s biggest event and the company has used this platform to showcase its technology and meet up with old customers as well as potential customers.

We want to tell customers how our machine can help in generating profits. We have constantly something new to offer to the market, Shah said adding that India is a huge market for high-end machines with untapped potential. Indian companies now want to compete with global firms. Talking about the response seen at the event, Shah said that it has been great as footfall has been high and some orders have been generated. We have got some orders from Indian customers which we will let you know once the deals are finalized, concluded Shah.
