Battenfeld-Cincinnati Austria GmbH is expanding in multi-layer extrusion lines to make thermoforming sheet. The Vienna-based company has received its second order of the year for a production line from an Asian packaging maker.
The first line this year was a nine-layer polypropylene sheet line. The new order is for a seven-layer PP/polystyrene sheet line, equipped with five extruders. The line can turn out up to 2,640 pounds of sheet an hour. The customer, which the machinery maker did not identify, will produce trays, cups and lids for food with an extended shelf life, such as sauces, baby food, soup, convenience food, dairy products and fruit.
