Brückner Servtec at Chinaplas 2021
Advanced solutions for existing BO lines in times of Circular Economy and Digitalization
At Chinaplas 2021 in Shenzhen, Booth 10P23, Brückner Servtec presents new solutions for the hot topics, circular economy and digitalisation, as well as improved local services in China to enhance the availability of existing film stretching lines.
Digitalisation in film production with Brückner ONE
The brand new Brückner ONE digital service platform provides a one-stop modular solution and supports all matters of the line and its operation such as service requests, spare parts inquiries, communication and line documentation anywhere, anytime and using any tool. It brings field-proven service products to a new, digital level, and enhances them with additional features. Brückner ONE helps to maximize the availability of film stretching lines and to minimize maintenance and downtime costs. Predictive maintenance or e-learning are next modules to come.
The service team of Brückner Group China offers various local services and products for film manufacturers in China:
- Clip & Chain refurbishment and services in China
The TDO chain-track system is a vital part in any biax film-production line, which needs high attention and regular maintenance to ensure the maximum production availability and efficiency. At Chinaplas, Brückner presents overhaul and refurbishment solutions for all different types of sliding as well as roller chains, including chains from other biax production lines. The expertise of Brückner combined with state-of-the-art high-end tooling and a variety of additional options, such as rental models for clip and chain parts minimize downtime and ensure long-lasting quality.
- Catalyst and filter refurbishment
Catalysts are vital components in every BOPET and BOPA (LISIM) film production line. Installed in the annealing zone, their oxidation effect on emerging oligomers ensures a consistant high quality of the produced film. Due to the way catalysts work, it is necessary to maintain this component regularly as efficiency decreases over time. Brückner Group China, in close cooperation with R&D specialists from Brückner Germany and catalyst manufacturers, has developed a cost effective process that restores the oxidation effect of used catalysts and dramatically increases their lifetime.
Service hub for Asia
For more than ten years, the dedicated service team of Brückner Group China grew to a professional and important service hub for film stretching lines even outside the borders of China. Brückner strengthened its local service competence to serve the customers in Asia with fast available engineers at short distances. The experts offer comprehensive experiences with BOPP, BOPA, BSF, BOPET and BOPE film stretching lines, take care of process, electric and software issues and offer various service agreements.
Production of BOPE film with existing BOPP lines
Strong growth for BOPE films: new BOPE-applications are expected to emerge over the next years due to higher demand for recyclable film structures based on mono-materials. BOPE films are applied as “functional layer”, i.e. sealing layer or as base films serving printability or metallization. Brückner Servtec introduces new upgrade packages for existing BOPP stretching lines, making them able to produce also BOPE film. The highly flexible solution increases the profitability and allows swift reaction to upcoming market changes, which increases the competitiveness of film producers tremendously.
At the joint Brückner Group booth, Brückner Servtec and Brückner Group China visitors will also meet Brückner Machinenbau presenting latest concepts for the production of added-value specialty plastics films, Kiefel, showing the latest developments for the packaging, medical & appliance industry, and PackSys Global, presenting advanced packaging equipment.
