Paccor International GmbH, based in Zell / Mosel in Germany and now a member of the Coveris group, has expanded its production capacity for PET sheet with the purchase of a complete three-layer coextrusion line, including an in-line lamination station, for its Polish factory in Skierniewice. The line from battenfeld-cincinnati achieves an output of 1.1 t/h and thicknesses ranging from 200 µm to 1.2 mm. The company says that due to the in-line lamination station, multi-layer sheet are just as easy to produce as barrier sheet and sealing sheet made of different polymers and regrinds.
The new three-layer co-extrusion line has now been operation at the Polish Coveris plant in Skierniewice since August 2013. "We have once again chosen a line from our long-standing machine supplier in Bad Oeynhausen, as we are absolutely satisfied with the energy-efficient operation and the options of manufacturing a variety of different sheet products with one extrusion line only. Another decisive argument in favor of the purchase was the high output of 1.1 t/h with a net sheet width of 900 mm, which enables us to optimally cater to the growth market of food packaging," said Marcin Antos, managing director of Coveris.
