Leading Italian extrusion machinery specialist Luigi Bandera SpA revealed it recently won a contract to supply a 3-layer TechnoFlex blown film to a packaging producer in Poland.
The Busto Arsizio, Italy-based Bandera said that it expects to deliver the equipment, mainly dedicated to shrink, lamination and converting film, soon to the unidentified but established company customer.
According to Bandera, the client has been operating in the flexible packaging and working in this market for more than 20 years.
The new TechnoFlex line has a “maximum lay flat of 2,400mm (net trimmed foil)” and an output of up to 550 kg/hour.
Such lines are fully equipped with advanced components including the latest generation of ESR-9000 winders which allow three winding modes - by contact, axial and with a gap. This provides the best solution “when the qualitative target is elevated, for example for converting or when the film presents particularly critical aspects such as stickiness and elasticity, Bandera suggested.
Its Technoflex blown lines are aimed at the production of multi-layer - three or five layer - packaging films.
Meanwhile, Bandera also announced it just supplied a PET rigid film extrusion line to a leading New Zealand thermoforming sheet extruder, Flight Plastics Group of Wellington, New Zealand.
This equipment is the latest of four such lines ordered by Flight in recent years with two shipped to the parent group in New Zealand and two delivered to its UK offshoot Flight Plastics UK in Romsey, England.
The PET rigid film extrusion line, with a maximum production output of 1,200 kgs/hour, turns out material for thermoforming for food packaging, form, fill and seal (FFS) and industrial applications.
