Two KAMPF slitting machines for recyclable films

Plastchim-T, one of the five largest European manufacturers of high-quality films and flexible packaging, ordered two slitting machines from KAMPF: a PrimeSlitter type Unislit II 630 and a PrimeSlitter type Universal 74/12 BOPP. The Unislit II 630 will already be delivered to Bulgaria in August this year, the Universal 74/12 BOPP will follow in March 2021. The machines complement the latest investment of the Bulgarian company in a new BOPP/BOPE line. This line will produce conventional packaging films and so-called “high barrier” films. A special process enables the films to be coated in the nano-thickness range and these ultra-thin layers do not interfere with sorting in the subsequent recycling process. Film manufacturers have to face the challenges of sustainability, recycling and closed loop recycling management. Plastchim-T’s goal is to produce packaging solutions with good sorting capability in waste separation and optimum recyclability. With its flexible production line and the high-performance slitting machines Unislit II and Universal, Plastchim-T is ideally positioned to achieve this goal. KAMPF also supports its customers in the development of new recyclable materials and their processing through intensive consultation and test runs in the in-house technology center.
