The capacity expansion for PET-Sheets at Brückner`s long-term partner Far Eastern Textile is well underway, with the flawless installation and commissioning of the first of six Brückner lines ordered in February 2008. The on-time-start-up of the 1.8 m line in Taiwan will be followed soon by the commissioning of two more lines in China and another one in Taiwan. Far Eastern Textile is already operating 10 Brückner lines in their factories in Hsinchu, Shanghai and Wuhan.
Equipped with twin screw extrusion these new lines process un-dried PET-resin to high quality sheet with a thickness range of 150 – 1,200 μm for thermoforming applications. The patented JUBO roll for inline adjustable crowning allows the production of thin gauge films with minimum tolerances. Additionally all lines are equipped with a 3-layer co-extrusion feed block, roll stack with 2-step polishing and a turret winder with multi-web inline slitting feature for the production of saleable perfect finished rolls.
By adding these latest lines Far Eastern Textile will further expand their leadership both in quality and market share. Demand for rigid packaging sheet in China is still growing, amorphous polyester sheet in particular is benefiting from this trend on account of its extraordinary transparency.
