AMUT DOLCI EXTRUSION (Novara, Italy) recently supplied to EB Packaging SDN. BHD a cast line for the production of stretch film in the factory located in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia. EB Packaging has been involved in the manufacturing and trading of packaging materials such as stretch film, plastic bags, PE foam, air bubble films and all kinds of adhesive tapes since 1995.

“We were really impressed with the performances of this machine: We reached the maximum speed of 900m/min in winding and the maximum line output of 1700kg/h during the acceptance test. The machine was tested with thin 2” cores with very successful results: the rolls were well wound, without tail, at very high speed,” stated Siow Chew Kiong, CEO of EB Packaging. “After the tests with 2” cores, we proceeded with 3” rolls production. We produced perfect machine rolls and even jumbo rolls of 50kg weight. The AMUT ProWind 4.0 winder has a system for weighing each roll before unloading so there is no need to manually weight the rolls before packing them on the pallet,” continues Siow.

“Because of the equatorial climate of Malaysia, we are cautious about the working temperatures of all electronic parts. The solution supplied by AMUT is brilliant. Not only the container with electronic parts is air-conditioned but also all the drives for extruders placed inside the container are water cooled, so overheating is impossible,” comments Teo Kee Lin, executive director of EB Packaging.

“I think that this is just the beginning of a long collaboration. Through the rolls produced with this new line, EB Packaging will be able to supply top quality films even to the most demanding markets. The order for a second line of the same type will very soon be approved,” says Sasa Davidovic, sales director of AMUT GROUP’s Packaging Film Division.
