Film producer Plastchim-T invests in the world’s largest BOPP line


A working width of 10.4m, speeds up to 600 m/minute, and an hourly output above 7,600 kg: these are the key figures of the world’s largest BOPP film production line which has now been acquired by Bulgarian film producer Plastchim-T. With a future total output of more than 110,000 tonnes of BOPP films per year, Plastchim-T further strengthens their position as one of Europe’s leading packaging manufacturers.

The new line is an investment in the future, as Managing Director BeyanFaik says is a perfect complement to the company’s existing BOPP line park. “We now have a broad portfolio of Germany-based Brückner lines in working widths of 4.2m, 6.6m, 8.7m, and soon 10.4m – with this equipment , we will be able to react very flexibly to the markets’ fast changing demands and can offer various films grades in small or large lots, even on short notice, ” he adds.

Such flexibility combined with a broad film portfolio, high quality standards, well-developed sales and service network and an advantageous location on the Black Sea coast has made Plastchim-T’s development a remarkable success story within Europe’s film industry over the last years. For the 10.4m line, a completely new factory will be built, fulfilling highest demands regarding efficiency, operation costs, material flow, logistics and energy consumption.

Plastchim-T’s latest line features a high speed machine direction orienter (MDO), a new sliding chain track system, a tailor-made surface treatment system and a special winding concept, both for highest speeds. Another highlight is Brückner’s linear motor technology for the line’s better running stability.
