Production

Sustainable product design is only possible with proven expertise and the right tools.

Our production: modern, responsive and well organised.

Extrusion

Extraordinary strength and high tear resistance characterise thermoplastic blown films.

We manufacture our films exclusively on blown film lines of well-known German manufacturers. The quality of the equipment is crucial for a superior product.

We produce films that solely comprise one layer (so-called mono film) and films that are made of several layers (so-called coextruded films). With a coex blown film, it is possible to combine the positive properties of different raw materials into one film.

We manufacture our films ranging from widths of 100 mm to 2,100 mm on rolls. The perimeter can be as large as 5,600 mm on our extrusion lines. Typical processing materials are LDPE, LLDPE, MDPE and HDPE.

 

<strong>Sustainable product design is only possible with proven expertise and the right tools.</strong>

Bag and sheet making

After the extrusion process, the film rolls are further processed into bags or sheets on our high quality converting machines.

With a variety of machine modules we generate a diverse product range. We distinguish between bag making machines, roll winders and tarpaulin winders.

Before the delivery, our automated stretch film machine will wrap the product in order to ensure that the product is protected from any transportation damage or weather conditions.
