Startup Tandem Extruder

After three month construction the new tandem extruder started the production o­n 28th of January 2013. This investment represents an important first step of our Flex Pack Business strategic for the future. With an expandable capacity of over 175 million square meters these tandem extruder are probably o­ne of the most efficient plants in the flexible packaging industry. Designed with six extruders, three in each coating/laminating unit, it is possible to combine up to eleven layers in o­ne production run. High-capacity polymers receive therefore the meaning which have been also intended in the development - to realize qualities in the " thinnest layers “ with the purpose, to reduce the raw material consumption and with it also the future packaging waste drastically. Another step for ecologically sustainable use of resources.
