Brückner’s 10.4 m lines conquer the BOPP market

Today’s standard working widths for BOPP commodity film stretching lines are 8.2 or 8.7 metres, except for a couple of well-proven 10 m lines, which Brückner has been supplying exclusively since 1996. However, some years ago Brückner anticipated the trend towards even broader lines – and gained considerable attention throughout the industry for their 10.x m concept for high-quality commodity film.

 

Recently increasing numbers of film producers have shown a specific interest in Brückner’s new generation of highly efficient BOPP lines with an unrivalled 10.4 m working width, 525 m/min speed and an annual output above 56,000 tons. Such operating figures represent the highest productivity within the film stretching line industry.

 

Several of these lines have already been sold, offering a number of advantages for the film producer:

 

  • Minimized operating costs per unit output
  • Considerable savings in site location development, factory building and peripheral equipment (auxiliary supply, slitters, roll handling etc.) compared to alternative layouts within the same output range
  • Lower labour costs
  • Higher raw material yield
  • Reduced specific energy consumption
  • Optimized slitting costs

 

To sum up, a 10.4 m BOPP line provides high quality films, considerably reduces BOPP film producers’ production costs and improves their overall profitability – an additional advantage available only to Brückner customers.
