Film supplier improves product finish and delivery time
A leading supplier of plastic films in southern Europe for more than 15 years has installed a Comexi Proslit EIikon slitter-rewinder in its plant in Sant Quirze del Vallès, Barcelona. Brilloworld provides the graphic arts, flexible packaging and labels/overwrapping sectors with the widest range of films in the market. Its main markets are Spain, Portugal, France and North Africa. Initially, the company focused on selling 12 and 15 micron polypropylene for the graphic arts sector in Spain. Since then the business has broadened its original range with products including thermoforming BOPP, transparent and metalised PET (silver/gold), COEX, polyamide, aluminum, PVDC and all types of specialties.
Today slitting operations represent more than 25% of Brilloworld’s turnover. With a current total of four slitters including its latest installation in 2011 of the Proslit Eikon, Brilloworld is on its way to becoming a leading company in its sector.
“The Proslit Eikon slitter represents a commitment to greater added value in service and logistics for our customers thanks to its features and high productivity,” comments Brilloworld manager Jordi Florensa Alegre. “With its production capacities and slitting and rewinding quality we can offer better finishes on the final product and improved delivery times, thus giving us much more flexibility overall.”
The Proslit Eikon slitter-rewinder has been installed in more than 70 plants worldwide, mainly in converting companies to increase productivity and improve slitting and rewinding quality. It has proven to reach a productivity of more than 320,000 linear meters in 24 hours and the 800m/min version can reach up to 400,000 meters for specific jobs. Furthermore, this machine boasts excellent flexibility in materials it can work with as well as different job types.
It can incorporate additional online equipment including microperforation, macroperforation, bending and inspection. “Companies like Brilloworld confirm the flexibility of jobs the Proslit Eikon can perform even for customers outside the converting process,” comments Proslit product manager Jordi Gorchs.
