1Q2016: New top-class 5-layer blown film line by the German Reifenhäuser Kiefel
In January 2016, we have successfully started full non-stop operation of a new top-class 5-layer blow film line designed specifically to produce high-quality LDPE and mLLDPE films. The line provides new opportunities of combinations of materials in 5 layers – improved properties of existing films as well as new properties and films:
- Demanding Films for Lamination and High-Quality Printing
- Packing of Fresh Food, Fruits & Vegetables, Magazines and Printed Materials
- Accurate cut
- Excellent transparency
- High-strength, flexible or thin Films
This substantial investment forms one of a series of specific measures aimed at the renewal and modernizing of production facilities of Slovpack that will enrich the current portfolio of production lines and the assortment of our products.
Main parameters of the 5-layer blowing line:
|Manufacturer:||Reifenhäuser Blown Film GmbH|
|Width of winder:||up to 1 600mm|
|Type:||Flat, tube or half-tube|
|Winding:||Roll diameter up to 1 200 mm|
4Q2015: New Assortment
Throughout 2015 and in the beginning of 2016, we continued developing new products and started offering and supplying products that benefit from:
- New top-class 5-layer blowing technology,
- Improvement of verified compositions resulting from customer requirements,
- Availability of improved granulate and additives.
In 2016, we will continue developing and testing new compositions during the operation of the 5-layer line and we will offer improved as well as completely new products. We will be happy to provide information about the soon-to-come new products to customers during personal visits or otherwise.
Selected New Products and Improved Features:
Lamination and Printing
- • By introducing new innovated types of PE granulates, we improve the current properties of films, especially with regard to transparency, firmness, gloss, reduction of welding temperature by approximately 10°C. This significantly influences the speed of product packaging and the optical properties of the packaging itself.
Bags for biological or industrial waste
- Extreme strength
- Excellent welding properties and strength of packed waste after vacuuming
- Femine hygienic films
3Q2015: Capacity Increase of Blowing Line for FFS Flexible Films by Almost 40%
In 3Q2015, we have successfully completed a substantial investment into a capacity and quality increase of the blowing film line by almost 40%. This line primarily produces FFS flexible packing films for packing bulk materials (polyolefin granulates and master batches, chemicals, construction materials, salt, asphalts, clay, wooden and straw pellets, etc.) and industrial waste.
This investment was co-financed by the funds of the European Union.
3Q2015: Drawing EU Funds
For the first time in its history, Slovpack has successfully applied for co-funding of innovations of technologies and in 4Q2015, we have successfully completed an investment into the technology of the FFS flexible packaging films production line and the related packaging solutions.
2Q2015: Installed a New Embossing Unit to Increase the Production Capacity of Embossed Films
In 2Q2015, we have completed the installation and successfully commissioned an embossing unit on the 3-layer blowing line, extending the production capacities of the line to include the production of highly demanded embossed FFS flexible packaging films for packing machines.
All films produced on this line can also be printed on a 4-colour in-line printing unit. Upon request of the customer, the film may include gussets.
3Q2014: Full Renovation of Floors in Production Hall 1
In 3Q2014, we have completely renovated floors in the entire area of production hall 1.
3Q2014: ISO Quality Management Certificate Confirmed
In September 2014 we have successfully sustained our ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Certificate from LL-C (Certification) Czech Republic s.r.o.
1Q2014: Overall Renovation of Cooling and Measuring on 3-layer Line for Flat Films
In 1Q2014, we have performed a full replacement of the original cooling, measurement, and regulation technology on the 3-layer line for flat films, installing a new, modern technology delivered and installed on a turnkey basis by our traditional supplier – K-Design, a renowned German company.
