At Feiplastic in Brazil, Starlinger & Co will showcase the high-efficiency circular loom FX 6.0 which is used to produce tubular fabric for sack production.

According to a Starlinger press release, the polypropylene tapes to be woven will come directly from the production of a Starlinger customer in Brazil.

With over 90 per cent efficiency, a maximum weft insertion rate of 1200 ppm and warp monitoring system on the creel, the FX 6.0 has everything needed for intelligent production of woven packaging,” it said.

The circular loom is designed to produce lightweight fabric in the range from 50–120 gsm and scores an IQ of 1000 metres and more, ensuring highest fabric quality.

In addition, very narrow fabric width tolerances and fewer variations, not only translates to less downtime and lower material consumption, but also considerably reduces waste in downstream production.

Starlinger which celebrates the 180th anniversary of its founding this year, also offers circular looms for heavy fabric used in the production of big bags.

Its eight-shuttle loom RX 8.0, with a production speed of up to 800 ppm, is currently the fastest on the market for this application and can process not only polypropylene tapes, but also high-strength polyester tapes.

“PET fabric made from such tapes is extremely durable and has exceptional dimensional stability due to high creep resistance,” it explained.

These properties render PET big bags suitable as containers for highly flowable materials. Such bags also withstand long storage duration while maintaining their shape.

With the new recycling line recoSTAR dynamic, Starlinger has pioneered a concept characterised by maximum energy efficiency in the production process and by a high degree of automation.

These factors make for stable and continuous production, high output and maximum flexibility with regard to input materials.

The PET sheeting line viscoSheet from Starlinger viscotec is suitable for the production of thermoforming film for food packaging from up to 100 per cent recycled PET material.

The film produced meets the standards set by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) for food contact applications.

Starlinger is a Vienna-based engineering company with production sites in Weissenbach and St. Martin, Austria, as well as Taicang, China.

Founded in 1835, the family-owned business has been exporting machines worldwide for more than 45 years with exports accounting for 99.5 per cent of its production.

Branches in Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa, USA and Uzbekistan ensure quick and professional technical support and service. (AR)
