BOPP film investment in India

A new Brückner high speed film production line has enabled Vacmet India to enter the BOPP film business. The state-of-the-art line at the company’s facility near Delhi has the capacity to produce up to 40,000 tonnes/year of polypropylene film, to satisfy the growing Indian market’s demand.

In addition to the “highly sophisticated” BOPP line, Brückner also supplied a comprehensive film recycling and fluff handling system. This allows Vacmet to feed the fluff directly back to the twin screw extruder, which saves energy and preserves raw material quality (no additional melting process by a regranulation. Alternatively, the fluff can also be processed by the regranulation system.

Direct drives throughout the whole line, advanced airflow control and a heat recovery system in the TDO (Transverse Direction Orientation) unit are further features to reduce the energy consumption.

Vacmet India is a privately held producer of high end flexible packaging materials for various food and non-food sectors. It has four manufacturing sites with, in addition to the new BOPP venture, an installed capacity of 35,000 tonnes/year of converted products (metallised and special coated products) and 50,000 tonnes/year of polyester films.
