Amut confirms EUR10 mn sales of lines to Asia


Italian extrusion/thermoforming machinery supplier Amut has secured EUR10 million worth of confirmed deals during and after the Chinaplas show in May. Its most number of customers are in Malaysia.

Amongst the customers it has secured in the region are Tycoplas Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian processor for disposable articles, that had bought the thermoforming machine exhibited in operation during Chinaplas: an ACF 820 model with an output of 260,000 PP lunch boxes/day.

Another Malaysian processor of disposable items, SCGM Bhd, has also acquired four ACF820 machines to produce containers in PP and PET.

A current customer of Amut, Lee Soon Seng Plastic Industries has nine thermoforming machines and has recently expanded the business with a new building in Kulai, Johor, on an area of 7.8 acres.

Malaysian flexible packaging maker Klang Hock will take delivery of a cast line for stretch film with the new ACP high speed winder with index of 18 seconds. The line has a 1.5 m width, output of up to 1,100 kg/hour, four extruders with L/D 1:40, five-layer feed block and automatic die. The new generation winder is said to have high speed performance, with 750 m/minute already demonstrated.

Meanwhile, across the border in Singapore, SKP - Seow Khim Polyethelene – has also acquired an Amut-Comi thermoformer to make noodles bowls. The AMP 630-GP model is equipped with a 16-cavity mould and has a production of 22,000 cups/hour.

In China, Huali Industries, one of the largest producers of edge-banding for furniture, has taken delivery of two twin lines to produce profiles in ABS. It will inaugurate a new factory in Zhejiang Province.

Another Chinese processor, Jingmen Keshun New Material, will have a complete plant for producing waterproofing membranes in TPO, in a configuration of two or three layers with reinforcement in glass fibre or polyester. The maximum width is 2 mm and the output is up to 2,200 kg/hour. The mineral filler powders are extruded through in-line processing.

In Cambodia, Chip Mong Group, is purchasing Amut lines for a TPP project, which includes four lines to extrude rigid pipes in UPVC for electrical and sewage purpose, flex and corrugated pipes in HDPE and UPVC.

“We have now a further evidence that the efforts invested in our R&D Department were on the right path in developing a technology mainly devoted to flexibility in production and to high speed performances. K show was the international platform to firstly present ACF, the last series of thermoforming machine by Amut-Comi, and the new generation of winders for stretch film cast lines,” said Piergianni Milani, President of Amut Group.
