The last two years, with the COVID 19 pandemic and all the travel restrictions that came with it, have given us a serious reminder of how essential professional service is to the efficient operation of film stretching lines. Therefore, we focused on Global Service in this TEC Talk and took the participants behind the scenes of our advanced and expanded global service organization.
Our experts Heinz Lind and Christian Stadler showed in detail how our special services can help our customers to get their film stretching line up and running again more quickly in the event of troubleshooting, thus saving them a lot of money.
Additionally, they learned more about our new strategy "Think global, act local" which creates a unique worldwide pool of know-how for our specialists on site with our customers.
In our look behind the scences the attendees also got to know Brückner specialists from their region. They explained their specific solutions to support film producers in the most efficient way.
Starting with the current global mega trend "Sustainability" in our TEC Talk in December 2021, we continued within our series with the next hot topic "Energy" in April 2022. Hosted by Erich Huber (Senior Regional Service Manager), we focused on:
Through continuous development, Brückner has cut the energy consumption of modern film-stretching lines by almost half in the last two decades. However, we remain ambitious: we are constantly optimizing our products to further decrease the use of energy.
In this TEC Talk our experts Stefan Mayr (Project Manager Electrical Upgrading), Sebastian Salentin (Project Manager Mechanical Upgrading), Heiko Krippner (Process Engineer) showed in detail how to influence, and especially reduce the energy consumption of existing production lines with special upgrades, tools and services.
In our last Brückner TEC Talk in 2021 we focused on one of the current global mega trends: Sustainability.
The participants learned in detail how to realign their production for sustainable film types with mono-material structures, e.g. BOPE, BOPET and BOPA. Our experts showed how these line concepts for fully recyclable packaging solutions meet the current and future market demands.
The participants also experienced how Brückner supports film manufacturers during the whole lifecycle of the film stretching line, which is the prerequisite for a successful, profitable and especially sustainable film production for decades. The following topics have been also highlighted in this context:
What to do with older lines? Our experts Christian Aigner, Hugo Seel and Sebastian Salentin showed how line conversion can transform existing film stretching lines into profit boosters.
Especially older lines, whose output performance does not match the state-of-the-art anymore, can no longer compete with new, high-performance lines. Therefore, these film producers need completely new possibilities for the use for their production lines.
Our experts presented practical examples of line conversions to run new products, so-called specialities. They explained in detail what needs to be adapted of an existing line to produce value-added film in order to stay competitive:
Process related topics can be very diverse in a film stretching line, especially when you consider the various film types. Furthermore, they have a huge impact on the film quality.
Our process expert Lukas Krems gave useful hints for various parts of a film stretching line in order to optimise the system in terms of process related challenges.
He took a closer look at:
In this TEC Talk, Brückner Servtec addressed the importance of a Professional Clip & Chain Service. Our Brückner Experts Benedict Orterer and Markus Summer pointed out that the TDO chain-track system is a vital part of any biax film-production line, which needs high attention and regular maintenance to ensure maximum production availability and efficiency.
The two specialists from the machine process and mechanics area shared their personal experience and knowledge with the viewers about the following points:
Brückner Servtec introduced and showcased different functions of the new Brückner ONE Digital Service Platform in the first event of the TEC Talks series. The two experts Jürgen Zinner and Daniel Mieze familiarized the participants with everyday service processes and discussed key benefits:
