Bulgarian Plastchim-T is one of the leading privately owned European manufacturers of biaxially oriented polypropylene films (BOPP), cast polypropylene films (CPP) and flexible packaging products. Recently, the company broke several records with their latest investment, a 10.4m wide Brückner film stretching line for the manufacture of high-quality BOPP packaging films. The speed mark of 600m/min was cracked for the first time ever and the hourly output above 7,600 kilo is also a new benchmark in the world of oriented film production. Besides this, the line's specific energy consumption per kilogram produced film is the lowest ever measured.

Plastchim-T's Owner Aydan Faik says: "The new line was originally meant as an investment in the future. Speeds of 600 m/min were only expected within the next two years. But the future is already now! Our staff and Brückner's specialists managed to reach this milestone in a much shorter time than we ever expected. We are very happy about this, not only for the speed's sake, but for an efficient film production in both respects, energy consumption and productivity."

The outstanding performance has been achieved by dedicated new line components such as a high speed machine direction orienter (MDO), a new sliding chain track system, a tailor-made surface treatment system and a special winding concept. Together with numerous other innovative technical features an excellent running stability and a top line availability at highest speeds is guaranteed. The line has also proved its suitability for the manufacture of value-added specialty films – such as films for metallization – at speeds above 500m/min.

Plastchim-T has a broad portfolio of Brückner lines in working widths between 4.2m, and 10.4m which enables them to react very flexibly to the markets' fast changing demands. Such flexibility combined with a broad film portfolio, high quality standards, a well-developed sales and service network and an advantageous location on the Black Sea coast has made Plastchim-T's development a remarkable success story within Europe's film industry over the last years.
