Amut’s cast film line caters to humid conditions in Malaysia


Italian extrusion machinery firm Amut Dolci Extrusion recently supplied a seven-layer cast film line for the production of stretch film to EB Packaging Sdn Bhd located in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia

A particular feature of the line, water-cooled drives for the extruders, attracted EB Packaging to the line.

Teo Kee Lin, Executive Director of EB Packaging, said, “Because of the equatorial climate of Malaysia, we are cautious about the working temperatures of all electronic parts. In the Amut line, not only are the electronic parts in an air-conditioned container but also all the drives for extruders placed inside the container are water cooled, so overheating is impossible.”

Meanwhile, EB Packaging CEO, Siow Chew Kiong, was impressed with the speeds the 2,000 mm-width seven-layer line had to offer, especially the maximum speed of 900 m/minute in winding and a maximum line output of 1,700 kg/hour.


“We were really impressed about the performance of this machine. It was tested with thin 2” cores with very successful results and the rolls were well wound, without tail, at a very high speed!”

He went on to say, “After the tests with 2” cores, we proceeded with 3” rolls production. We produced perfect machine rolls and even jumbo rolls of 50 kg weight. Amut’s ProWind 4.0 winder has a system for weighing each roll before unloading so there is no need to manually weight the rolls before packing them on the pallet.”

Set up in 1995, EB Packaging is involved in the manufacturing and trading of packaging, such as stretch film, plastic bags, PE foam, air bubble films and all kinds of adhesive tapes.
