The Indian company AVI Global Plast based in Mumbai, signed its first Bandera extrusion line acquisition
Bandera PET technology in IndiaAVI Global Plast is one of the largest Indian producers of PET sheets and thermoformed clamshell punnets and trays for fresh produce packaging. Thanks to this line, probably one of the biggest in India; it will take AVI’s total PET capacity to 1,000 tons per month so to become the biggest producer of high quality PET foil. AVI has also invested in its second thermoforming line and new moulds, this capacity will be useful in facing the increased demand of its thermoformed products and request for packaging made with recycled materials.
AVI Global Plast has chosen the dryless Bandera technology in order to perform at the best level, even with low grade materials.
The line configuration is based on the specific needs of the customer, to optimise the production process, but keeping an eye on the future developments of the packaging market.

The line can be implemented with accessories specially developed to extend the current performances.
The core of the plant is the corotating twin screw extruder (up to 1,200 kg/h) with its high vacuum venting device, which is state of the art in order to process material without pre-treatment as PET and to grant thehighest flexibility during the production process.
The extruder has an automatic superfiltration screen-changer with back-flush system, for the down-stream a high performing cooling and polishing roll stack calender fulfils production development. It can be also implemented and modified to face future challenges.
