Sustainable and Efficient
Brückner Maschinenbau at K 2019
One way to increase recyclability is to use mono-material film. But such film must not be inferior in any way to its multi-layer predecessors. Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, Siegsdorf, Germany, has therefore developed a new inline coater (ILC) for all BOPP and BOPE lines that is installed in the line upstream of transversal stretching. The manufacturer claims it can produce extremely thin functional layers in the nano range. The extreme thinness of the layers means that they do not disrupt sorting and recycling, but do allow, for example, improved adhesion during metallizing and excellent barrier properties in conjunction with very thin aluminum oxide coatings.
New Line Concepts for the Production of BOPE Film
In addition, Brückner will present two new line concepts for the production of BOPE film, along with further new developments such as a high-temperature concept for BOPP capacitor film, lines for the production of stone paper based on BOPP or BOPE with a calcium carbonate content of over 60 %, and biaxially oriented polyester films (BOPET) for optical applications. Brückner will display some innovations in the field of battery separator films as well.
Digital Service Platform
With a view to making film processing even more efficient, Brückner is also focusing on digitalizing service. Its “Brückner One” digital service platform is a one-stop solution that supports all operational aspects of a film stretching line as well as raises service offerings to a new digital level and adds extra functions.
