Mono-axial Orientation

Mono-axial Orientation

Mostly used for shrink labels and sleeves

The cast film is stretched either in longitudinal (MD) or transverse (TD) direction to attain the required film properties. Mono-axial oriented film is mostly used for shrink labels and sleeves, where it replaces paper and adhesive labels.

Longitudinal orientation of the cast film is achieved by increasing the speeds between a group of rollers, whereas transverse orientation is effected by a chain track system where clips fix the cast film during the stretching process. Brückner offers a variety of in- and off-line solutions for various polymers such as PET-G, PVC, PS and PLA.
