Large, fast and productive from day one: Polibak’s new BOPP line on stream

The new line’s flexibility will enable Polibak to produce finest packaging films, different label types such as IMLs with short changeover times.

 

Polibak A.Ş. is one of the leading and most traditional plastics film producers in Turkey. Founded in 1994, the company has been following a sustainable growth strategy, with their main focus on becoming a global brand in the film industry. To reach this goal, Polibak teamed up with Brückner Maschinenbau for the largest, fastest and most productive BOPP lines in Turkey: 8.7m line width, 525m/min production speed and an output of 6.5 tons per hour.

 

The line recently started successfully, producing saleable film from the very first mill roll. The new line’s flexibility will enable Polibak to produce finest packaging films, different label tpyes such as IMLs with short changeover times. Very quickly, the smooth cooperation of the teams of Polibak and Brückner managed to speed-up the line above 500 m/min at thicknesses below 18 µm. Along with the start-up of their 5th line, Polibak’s total BOPP production now increased to 130.000 tons per year.

 

Ali Çalişkan, Polibak’s General Manager, says: “When we were thinking about our new investment we were looking for a reliable long-term partner who could provide a complete solution from one source. We decided to go with Brückner not least because of their many successful references – and have been confirmed by a very smooth course of the whole project.”
