The success of Bandera’s extrusion lines and 3-layer-blown-film-extrusion-line-for-production-of-shrinkthe appeal of the Made in Italy technology reaches the other side of the globe.

A new Australian customer, who has trusted both the value of the Bandera brand itself and the reliability of our solutions, has chosen a Smartflex 22 line for the production of shrink, lamination and shrink-hood film.

This 3-layer blown film extrusion line, customer need oriented at a competitive price, has been successfully developed using the economy of scale principle.

The line composition is:

  • 12-component loading and gravimetric batch system
  • 1x extruder Ø 85 mm, 2x extruders Ø 65 mm
  • 3-layer coextrusion die head with installed die 350 mm and additional die Ø 450 mm, IBC
  • system and 8 ultrasound sensors for width control
  • high performance multi-lip air ring
  • automatic film thickness measuring and adjusting system
  • 2x bubble guiding cages
  • rotating take off 2400 mm width with carbon fibre rollers + additional thermoregulated
  • cylinders. 5 m long gusseting devices.
