Speed world record: Votocel´s BOPP line running at 530 m/min!

Higher speed for enhanced line efficiency / Speed world record: Votocel´s BOPP line running at 530 m/min


Leading Brazilian film producer Votocel has reached an absolute speed record for BOPP lines: 530 m/min is the consistent actual speed of the company`s Line No. 4, a 7.4 m Brückner line. Originally designed for 450 m/min in 1996, Votocel themselves boosted up to 475 m/min. A further speed up by the service professionals of Brückner ServTec now leads to the world record speed. The upgrading was accomplished very smoothly, enabling Votocel to resume the production of high grade film on this line within a short time.


Mr. Ivan R.P. Gianolla, General Director: "The technological process and equipment knowledge accumulated by Votocel in conjunction with Brückner engineering solutions were the key success factors for this high performance achievement. This was a very important improvement as it allowed Votocel to add extra capacity in an existing line."
