Different markets, different solutions
At „CMM JAPAN & JSP 2007“ in Tokyo, visitors at the Brückner booth showed great interest in production lines for high value optical films. These films are made of PET, TAC, COC, COP, PVA or PC. They are used as polarizer film, retardation film and protection film on flat-screen televisions, desktop monitors, laptops, cellphones or flexible displays to enhance the brightness and increase viewing angles.
The great demand for high-class flat screens led to numerous fruitful discussions and presentations about Brückner`s LISIM® lines. With MD and TD stretching ratios flexible in a wide range, the non-contact stretching, and the clean room suitable design, this technology offers the best solution for the most challenging optical properties. Also new principles for retardation film stretched with MD-ratio < 1 and at the same time with TD-ratio > 1 aroused the visitors` interest.
Besides this, Brückner presented very flexible production lines for non-oriented films as well as for all kind of oriented films with the sequential stretching technology. This includes complete lines and also turnkey plants, suitable for clean room operation.
