Preparations and arrangements are in full swing at the Luigi Bandera SpA workshops in Busto Arsizio, Italy, for the build-up of PLAST 2018, to be held at Fiera Milano in Rho-Pero, from Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June 2018.

The traditional spring exhibition for the plastics and rubber Industries, in which several different trade fairs for extrusion, packaging and converting are held together, is regarded by BANDERA as a great opportunity to forge partnerships. Throughout the whole fair period visitors, customers and operators can easily reach the Bandera R&D Center thanks to quick rides by specially arranged shuttles from HALL 15 – BOOTH A/B 121/122 to Busto Arsizio.

Bandera THOE (The House Of Extrusion) is only fifteen minutes from the fair; the specially dedicated extrusion lines for the sectors of flexible packaging and converting (blown film coextrusion) as well as thermoformed rigid packaging and FFS will be shown running.

• A newly-manufactured blown film extrusion line, from the five-layer polyolefin-dedicated PO5 series, ensuring higher outputs than 1000 kg/h, with film widths of 2600mm.

• A full extrusion line for rigid PET, PP and PLA film, distinguished by a gross output rate of 1200kg/h, a film width of 1450mm and a thickness range between 0,14 and 1,5mm.

• Various machines, full components and appliances of extrusion lines specifically intended for agriculture blown films and geoliner blown films for civil and industrial waterproof systems.

• The new PURe Unit dedicated to the production of FDA/EFSA approved packaging (rigid films using PCR PET).

As the crucial issue for Bandera at PLAST 2018, the company aims to promote recyclable and/or biodegradable materials for environmental protection. While watching live extrusion, visitors will be able to speak to Bandera’s highly-qualified specialists, skilled in software programmes for Industry 4.0, via the company’s IoE (Internet of Extrusion).

On Friday 1 June, the entire Bandera customer service team will be available for a whole day dedicated to the latest and enhanced concept of Bandera customer care.
