A triplet in Eastern Europe for Bandera Extrusion
Three rigid film/ sheet extrusion projects are coming up for delivery soon to very important converters operating in the area of Eastern Europe, one confirming time and again their client loyalty, the others selecting Luigi Bandera SpA as their new technological partner.
The three lines are representative of the Bandera microcosm of extrusion:
1. The very compact Multilayer PET Rigid Film/Sheet Extrusion Line for thermoforming and FFS (Form Fill & Seal), for a maximum output of 750 Kg/h, with a net width of 1200mm, including a Bandera patented, 2C70 52 L/D co-rotating twin-screw main extruder, a TR65 35 L/D single-screw co-extruder, a single-manifold flat die, and a horizontal roll stack. The line is completed by thickness control, in-line PE lamination and two-position cantilever winding systems.
2. The versatile, high-output, Alpha 2 – 185 Rigid Film/ Sheet Extrusion line, mainly for multilayer PET extrusion, but also suitable for processing PP, PS and PLA. Its maximum output in terms of PET processing is 1600kg/h, with a net width of 1580mm. This line features a Bandera patented 2C105 52 L/D co-rotating twin-screw main extruder, a TR90 35 L/D single-screw co-extruder, an automatic Bandera single-manifold flat die, a horizontal roll stack with motorized cross axis system for thin film/ sheet processing, a thickness control system and an in-line PE film lamination system.
3. The sophisticated, high-tech, high-output, Multilayer Sheet Extrusion Line for rigid or foam PET production for thermoforming, FFS (Form, Fill & Seal), printing and industrial applications. It is designed for a net width of 1500mm and has a maximum output of 1500kg/h, in terms of rigid PET, and 750kg/h in terms of semi-rigid PET. This line features two co-rotating twin-screw extruders, a 2C85 52 L/D and a 2C70 52 L/D, a TR90 35 L/D single-screw co-extruder, two flat dies, i.e.: a CLOEREN flat die for rigid products and a Bandera flat die for foamed / semi-rigid products, a physical foam PET extrusion system, a horizontal roll stack with cross axis system for thin film / sheet processing, besides systems for thickness control and semi-automatic cantilever winding. The line also comprises an in-line PE film lamination unit, which, per its composition, is a dedicated unit suitable for semi-rigid products as well. This is the fourth Bandera line commissioned by this customer.
