Erema's Discovery Day Attracted more than 130 Visitors
On 29 October 2014 over 130 existing and potential international customers and guests invited by Erema came to the company's headquarters in Ansfelden near Linz in Austria for "Discovery Day 2014". The focus was on in-house recycling, one of the company's core competencies. Experts from Borealis, SML, OCS, Polifilm Extrusion and Erema provided valuable insights in their presentations.The live demonstrations took place in the Erema Customer Centre which, together with a plastics analysis lab, features worldwide state-of-the-art engineering.
Flexible packaging accounts for a quarter of the world's plastic applications. Special polyethylene (PE) film applications such as shrink and stretch films and biaxially oriented PP (BOPP) dominate the field here with annual growth rates of 3-5% in the market. As material costs account for a majority (over three quarters) of the production costs, less production "waste" also means lower costs for raw material and disposal. With "Don't waste your waste" as the motto, Erema showed how you can use intelligent in-house recycling solutions to return up to 100% of the plastic "waste" to the production process and thus save production and labor costs.
Erema presented both inline and offline systems at "Discovery Day 2014". The recycling systems can thus be integrated not only in the production lines but also installed externally. For flexible and highly efficient offline applications Erema presented to attendees the brand new EFS Crocodile system with a technical conveyor belt for the dosing of endless edge trim. This innovation enables the constant feeding of tangled edge trim without pre-cutting for the first time.
