Paccor International, part of the global Coveris packaging group, has expanded PET sheet capacity with the introduction of a new high output Battenfeld-Cincinnati extrusion line in Poland.

The leading rigid containers producer is already operating the complete 3-layer coextrusion line, including an in-line lamination station, with a 1.1 metric ton per hour capacity at its production plant in Skierniewice, Poland.

Paccor, based in Zell/Mosel, Germany, chose the equipment partly because of its versatility capable of turning out a sheet thickness range from 0.2 millimeters to 1.2 millimeters.

The laminating unit allows the new line to produce multi-layer sheets as easily as barrier sheet and sealing sheet made from different polymers and regrinds, according to Bad Oeynhausen, Germany-based Battenfeld-Cincinnati.

The line can, for example, provide the sheet with a barrier layer to extend the shelf life of the packaging or with a polyethylene sealing layer to offer subsequent peelable and/or weldable capability.

Paccor said it was pleased with the new extrusion line’s capacity to turn out a variety of different sheet products and fully satisfied with its energy efficiency.

“Another decisive argument in favor of this purchase was the high output of 1.1 [metric tons] per hour with a net sheet width of 900 millimeters, which enables us to optimally cater to the growth market of food packaging,” said Marcin Antos, managing director of Coveris’s Polish subsidiary.

Coveris was formed by the May 2013 merger of U.S. packaging firm Exopack with four European packaging companies owned by the American private equity group Sun Capital Partners: Britton Group, Kobusch, Paccor and Paragon Print & Packaging.
