Brückner at ICE 2009: Lively demand for CPP and PET sheet technology

From 24 - 26 November 328 exhibitors from 21 countries participated in ICE Europe 2009, Europe’s Leading Exhibition for the Converting Industry in Munich. The organizers recorded 25% more visitors compared to the last show two years ago, 44% coming from abroad.

 

The Brückner booth was very well frequented by numerous film producers from all over Europe but also from as far as India and the Middle East. Many interested parties from long-standing customers as well as new qualified prospects came to discuss machinery concepts and projects.

 

Regarding CPP the discussions focused on productivity and the economy of scale for wide web production equipment. With increased market demand for high quality CPP films, film producers are investigating how to seize the opportunities best.

 

PET sheets for rigid packaging applications continue their growth. Brückner’s concepts were the topic of many conversations, especially the possibility to process high percentages of recycled material. Customers can select various extrusion systems for processing PCR materials.

 

A great number of guests were extremely interested in Brückner`s unique cast PET sheet technology. The advantages of an electrostatic pinning – e.g. increased line speeds and easy production of thin gauge sheet – have been proven in numerous BOPET projects worldwide and now shift productivity of cast PET sheet lines to a new level.

 

Brückner would like to thank all customers and friends for visiting the booth, discussing markets and projects. We will be back for ICE 2011.
