Extrusion Lines & Winding

The numbers speak for themselves: Over 1000 Starlinger tape extrusion lines supplied with over 200,000 winders produce tapes for 2.3 million tons of packaging fabric annually. Starlinger leads the world market in the tape extrusion sector, with proven design and a wide range of machines.

All have several things in common: advanced technology, an excellent price-performance ratio, clarity and ease of operation, proven technology based on years of experience, simple maintenance and high production speeds – even with the new material-saving, extremely thin tapes.

Circular looms

Every year, 45,000 Starlinger circular looms produce more than 35 billion meters of fabric in the factories of some 900 customers – at faster and faster production speeds …

Starlinger circular looms target all aspects of cost-efficient high-tech weaving. The use of high-quality materials as well as user-friendliness ensure precise and gentle production of high quality fabric with lightweight, medium-weight and heavy tapes. In addition to their high production efficiency Starlinger circular looms are characterized by low maintenance and spare part requirements.

Coating and laminating lines

A large portion of woven sacks – 30 to 40 percent – is produced with coating, because coated sacks provide much better protection of the contents from dust and especially from moisture. Coated fabric also offers better printability. However, uncoated sacks are preferred for some applications, especially for filling goods that require breathable fabric.

Coating with perfectly even thickness and excellent adhesion properties?
No problem at all for lamiTEC, Starlinger’s new version of a high-level coating line.

Printing lines for woven bags

Simple “potato stamping”, once seen everywhere on sacks, no longer makes the grade. Even in the bulk trade, where looks never seemed to matter much, multicolored logos and artful writing have become the norm – whether for marketing reasons or simply in order to differentiate the product from other brands. 

Starlinger’s research departments invest day-to-day effort in order to perfect both printing technology and its visual result.

Conversion lines

At the end of the production process, the tubular fabric becomes a sack. And it is the conversion line that gives the sack its final, individual form, cutting it to length, sewing it, and adding the desired closure type – or forming a brick-shaped AD*STAR® sack in a special adhesive-free heat welding process.
Starlinger conversion lines produce sacks out of coated or uncoated standard fabric, leno fabric, as well as tubed or OPP laminated fabric. The tubular fabric is cut to length and the desired closure type added – by sewing, sealing, gluing or welding. A variety of closure options are available to match the wide variety of applications. In addition to a wide range of sack types, also carrier bags can be produced.

Consumer Bags

What is perfect consumer packaging all about?

It should protect the content, make the product appealing to the buyer, and be economic in production.
For the packaging of dry bulk goods destined for the end-consumer market and carrier bags with high standards for long life, attractive design and environment-conscious use, there are solutions that meet all requirements head on: PP*STAR® and CB*STAR® from Starlinger.

Attractive PP woven packages are seen more and more often in retail stores. For these consumer bags a transparent PP film, printed in photo quality on its reverse side, is laminated onto the fabric. The product is presented with optimum market appeal, and the precise readability of the bar code is ensured. Ideal for dry bulk goods in quantities of 10 kg or more such as rice, cereals, and pet food – the PP woven sacks are stronger and cheaper than the conventional multi-layer paper sacks, and are completely recyclable.

Durable, reusable, eco-friendly
Woven shopping bags are gaining in popularity and have visibly become a part of our everyday shopping culture. For good reason: no other type of bag meets the increasingly high standards for long life, attractive design and environment-conscious use of resources so well.

Woven consumer bags offer the following advantages over conventional single-use bags:

Light but resistant
Durable
Less raw material input
Economical production
Environmental friendly
100% recyclable
