Amut Dolci – Extrusion line scored in Malaysia
ITALY • The company has recently supplied a cast line for the production of stretch film for the factory of EB Packaging located in Batu Pahat, Johor. The line is 2000 mm (79”) wide for film configuration in seven layers.
“The machine was tested with thin 51 mm (2”) cores with very successful results as the rolls were well wound, without tail and at very high speed. We reached the maximum speed of 900 m/min (2953 fpm) in winding and the maximum line output of 1700 kg/h during the acceptance test.,” stated Siow Chew Kiong, CEO of EB Packaging. “After these tests we proceeded with 76 mm (3”) cores. We produced perfect machine rolls and even jumbo rolls of 50 kg weight. The Amut ProWind 4.0 winder has a system for weighing each roll before unloading so there is no need to manually weight the rolls before packing them on the pallet,” he continues.
Water cooled drives for the extruders is another peculiar feature of this line. “Because of the equatorial climate of Malaysia, we are cautious about working temperature of all electronic parts. The solution supplied by Amut convinced us, as not only the container with electronic parts is air-conditioned but also all the drives for extruders placed inside the container are water cooled, so overheating is impossible,” comments Teo Kee Lin, executive director of EB Packaging.
Since 1995 EB Packaging SDN. BHD. is a Malaysian company involved in the manufacturing and trading of packaging materials, such as stretch film, plastic bags, PE foam, air bubble films and all kinds of adhesive tape.
