Line Conversion - New Products

Highlights of the last Brückner TEC Talk / October 2021

In our last expert talk we discussed 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 Christian Aigner, Hugo Seel and Sebastian Salentin showed 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:

  • Various types of multilayer film (cavitated film, improved surface film or barrier film)
  • Inline Coating (ILC) to improve the film quality with a 3-layer die (mono-material structure)

Line Availability: TDO Chain-Track-System

April 2021 - Reasons and benefits of a Professional Clip & Chain Service

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:

  • How the chain-track-system directly influences the film quality
  • Why regular maintenance of the TDO chain-track-system is necessary to have a healthy production line
