Successful start-up of ANDRITZ Biax’ BOPET thin film line for  Zhuoli Jiaozou Stamping, China
International technology Group ANDRITZ has successfully started up the 5.1 m wide BOPET thin film line supplied to Zhuoli Jiaozou Stamping, the first Chinese enterprise specialized in producing hot-stamping material and TTR (Thermal Transfer Ribbon).

The new ANDRITZ Biax BOPET (Biaxially Oriented Polyethylene Terephthalate) line has a line speed of up to 330 m/min. Within only a few hours after start-up, the line was running at a stable speed with very good film quality on the winder. Mr. Li, Project Director of Zhuoli Jiaozou Stamping, says: “The start-up of the line reached our expectations by far.”

This order underlines the position of ANDRITZ Biax as one of the world’s leading suppliers of technology and equipment for the production of biaxially oriented plastic films.
