AgriFuture by Bandera in Asia

Multilayer films for greenhouse and agricultural packaging

Technology - Wednesday, 15 November 2017

Following the trials at Bandera’s research and development centre The House of Extrusion in August, a new AgriFuture extrusion line was recently delivered to a well-renowned Asian plastic processor, among the leading producers of agriculture packaging film in Asia.

The project is the prompt answer to the urgent Asian market demand for increasingly innovative technologies concerning multilayer technical films, specifically dedicated to agriculture.

The line has a rated output higher than 1,300 kg/h and can produce bubble film with open width from 8 to 12 m in thicknesses from 60 to 250 μm. Applications are essentially greenhouse and tunnel covers. The technical specifications of the agrifilm extrusion line include:

- five single-screw extruders with a diameter of 100 mm, complete with hydraulic screen changers and relevant loss-in-weight-gravimetric dosing system;

- five-layer coextrusion head, complete special dies and featuring IBC system, double-flow high-efficiency external cooling ring, fully automatic thickness measurement and control device;

- bubble calibration basket, rated opening up to 14 m, fixed upper take-off unit, roller width 4,500 mm, 12 m interchangeable wooden-slat collapsing frames and gusseting devices;

- single-station winder, ensuring axial, contact and combined winding mode, and providing entirely automatic winding shaft extraction:

- central line control with process management software.
