Bandera: The latest innovation in blown agrifilm extrusion lines

A newly-manufactured extrusion line AgriFuture ® underwent final trials at Bandera research and development centre The House of Extrusion ® (THOE) in August. The trials were a huge hit. The same line has been recently delivered to a well-renowned Asian plastic transformer, among 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.

Applications are essentially greenhouse cover film with open width from 8 to 12 m max and thickness range from 60 to 250 ?m.
Rated line output higher than 1300 kg/h.

Basic technical specifications of the agrifilm extrusion line supplied:

  • Five Ø 100 mm single-screw extruders, complete with hydraulic screenchangers 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 4500 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.
  • Cooling tower, complete with support frame.

Central line control, by dedicated software IoE Internet of Extrusion® (Bandera IIoT solution) for more evolved extrusion process control and management.

The ultimate purpose set forth by Bandera within the next five years is the establishment of a leading technological partnership with primary companies in the sector and in the industry of agriculture film.
