AMUT DOLCI EXTRUSION (Novara, Italy) and the Mexican company GEPP have announced their collaboration in the field of flexible packaging machines.

“For two years GEPP has been considering to start its own internal production of shrink and stretch film in order to optimise packaging costs for all its dedicated plants around Mexico. The aim of the project is to produce more than 14 000t/year of shrink film and more than 4500t/year of stretch film. We needed to find a partner with a strong knowledge on both blown and cast technology, capable of supplying Grupo Gepp with state-of-the-art solutions to achieve this strategic goal. We made up our mind for AMUT GROUP,” says Geronimo Rotundo, director of Proplasa, the vertical integration for plastic of GRUPO GEPP, during the acceptance test of the first blown line, which is now ready to be delivered.

“The supply includes: three co-ex lines for blown PE shrink film, one cast line for stretch film, one slitting machine, a system for the recovery of flawed rolls, chiller, piping for water distribution plus an intensive training programme for GEPP technicians,” says Riccardo Castello, AMUT DOLCI EXTRUSION division sales director.

“We’ve been asked to supply a turnkey project to GEPP, including local support for the installation, training and after sales service in the area of Mexico City,” says Alberto Rincón, sales manager for the Latin America area.

The three blown extrusion lines are identical and each one has a 3-layer shrink PE film configuration, net width of 2400mm and capacity of 800kg/h with 50μm of thickness. The latest generation of “rising type” automatic ring performs an extremely precise thickness control with very low tolerance.

The cast line will produce 5-layer stretch film with a net width of 1500-mm. The line is based on four extruders with water cooled drives and the PROWIND 4.0 super-fast winder (speed up to 1000m/min).
