Home » Starlinger Launches New Lamination Technology at K 2013
Austrian Starlinger & Co. GmbH is presenting a new web lamination concept in Düsseldorf this year. “This is a revolutionary step in continuous web lamination, making it a lot easier and more efficient while guaranteeing best lamination quality”, says Starlinger sales director Hermann Adrigan. Already in the past years Starlinger has set the standards with their stacoTEC lamination lines, selling up to 30 lines per year to customers around the globe. The worldwide first presentation of the new lamination line will be at the Starlinger booth in hall 16, where visitors can see it in live operation. Furthermore, Starlinger’s innovative product developments in flexible woven packaging and the entire range of A to Z turnkey machinery solutions will be presented.
Plastics Recycling: Solutions for Heavily Contaminated Waste and World Premiere in Decontamination Technology
In hall 9, Starlinger recycling technology will launch a new development which allows the recycling of highly contaminated post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste such as washed household waste, agricultural films or similar, as well as heavily printed material. The presented technology also features excellent compounding capability for upgrading the final product. During the exhibition a recoSTAR universal 65 VAC will process highly printed PE film, demonstrating the excellent melt degassing and cleansing capacity needed for high-quality regranulate that can be used in different applications.
Starlinger viscotec will stage the world premiere of the new deCON reactor in hall 9. A viscoSTAR reactor will be set up in hall 16, where a video wall will also show the recently launched viscoSHEET PET sheet line. The new sheet line is able to process up to 100 % recycled PET, virgin PET, and PIR (post-industrial regrind) at guaranteed IV levels, meeting FDA/EFSA levels for food-grade applications.
Starlinger Open House in Austria
In the days before and after the K customers have the possibility to visit the Starlinger Open House in Weissenbach, just 1 hour by car from Vienna. From October 14 – 16 and 21 – 25, the entire machinery range featuring the newest developments in textile packaging production and plastics recycling equipment can be seen in operation in the showroom at the Starlinger factory premises.
Some lessons can be hard to learn, and COVID-19 has been one tough teacher when it comes to supply chains. We shed some light on what this taskmaster has taught us in the November issue of Flexible Packaging as well as how printers can use less ink without sacrificing quality, how advances in technology are opening up new markets for flexible, and showing you a brand that’s dear to our hearts with its flippancy. There’s more than that, though, but you’ll have to dive in to see it!
