Brückner Maschinenbau at Plastindia 2023

January 13, 2023 Off By Sebastian Reisig

In 2023 a highlight of Brückner’s trade fair appearances is Plastindia in New Delhi. Focus will be on innovations for the growing technical film markets but also for the continuous demand for highly efficient packaging film production lines. Another important component of the Plastindia presence are concepts for the manufacture of advanced films for future market expectations and legal regulations. Hall 07, Booth 7H-FP-B-1.

High efficiency for future packaging film production

Speed and width of film stretching lines are the key parameters for high output and high efficiency. At Plastindia Brückner Maschinenbau will present corresponding new line concepts for the production of BOPP and BOPET packaging film production. Another aspect: The more efficient and higher output a film stretching line is, the lower the specific energy consumption.

Mono-material films – solutions for a Circular Economy

Mono-material packaging becomes more and more important. Brückner Maschinenbau will show solutions for the state-of-the-art materials BOPP and BOPET and also for new opportunities with BOPE. Examples are:

  • PP mono-material applications, where complex laminates are substituted by
    all-polypropylene versions
  • Usage of recylate PET made from post-consumer without any losses in quality
  • Brückner’s unique BOPE/BOPP hybrid lines allowing to react swiftly and flexible to market trends

Specialty film lines: Latest developments

India is experiencing a steadily growing demand for lines to manufacture specialty films, in particular for the rapidly growing e-mobility sector. Two examples: At the moment production lines for ultra-thin films for high-performance capacitors are already sought after and sooner or later also battery separator film lines for the lithium-ion battery industry will be in demand. Brückner will show the latest concept developments in this area and also for other technical applications such as solar back sheet, photovoltaic panels, high performance optical films or flexible and printed electronics.

Solutions for future requirements for sustainable films and packaging

In the future, societal expectations and legal regulations regarding recycling, circular economy and sustainability in general will influence the plastics and packaging industry to a much greater extent – worldwide. At Plastindia Brückner is ready to discuss appropriate approaches and concepts:

  • Line concepts for the ultra-flexible manufacture of various film thicknesses,
    according to demand or rules
  • Films with integrated functionalities such as a traceability that ensures the complete documentation of packaging and its return to the circular economy
  • Films that are excellently prepared for efficient downstream converting steps.
