Bulgarian Plastchim-T invests in the future – with the world’s largest BOPP line

The highest output and productivity available within the industry to date


A working width of 10.4m, speeds up to 600m/min and an hourly output above 7,600 kilo: these are the key figures of the world’s largest BOPP film production line which has now been acquired by Bulgarian film producer Plastchim-T. With a future total output of more than 110,000 tons of BOPP films per year, Plastchim-T further strengthens their position as one of Europe’s leading packaging manufacturers.


The new line is an investment in the future, as Managing Director Beyan Faik says: “We strive to make our company fit for the next generation. This huge line bears enormous potential and is a perfect complement to our existing machinery park. We now have a broad portfolio of Brückner BOPP lines in working widths of 4.2m, 6.6m, 8.7m and soon 10.4m – with this equipment we will be able to react very flexibly to the markets’ fast changing demands and can offer various films grades in small or large lots, even on short notice.”


Such flexibility combined with a broad film portfolio, high quality standards, a well-developed sales and service network and an advantageous location on the Black Sea coast has made Plastchim-T’s development a remarkable success story within Europe’s film industry over the last years. For the 10.4m line a completely new factory will be built, offering promising perspectives for the future. Due to the high demands of all participants, factory and line will set benchmarks for efficiency, operation costs, material flow, logistics and energy consumption.


Brückner Maschinenbau is proud to have found with Plastchim-T an optimal partner for this historical step: Increase of today´s production speeds of 500-525m/min up to 600 m/min in a defined period of time. Brückner´s 10.4m technology stands for the highest output and productivity available within the industry to date. Plastchim-T’s latest line features a high speed machine direction orienter (MDO), a new sliding chain track system,  a tailor-made surface treatment system and a special winding concept, both for the highest speeds and outputs. Another highlight is the linear motor technology in all key components.
