Cosmo Films, installated a new solvent less lamination machine at its Karjan plant, Vadodara. The new machine has been commissioned at company’s existing facility at Karjan, near Vadodara, India which already houses BOPP lines, extrusion coating & chemical coating lines and a metalizer.

The installed machine is a Nordmeccanic a product which is 1.8 meter wide and can run upto 450m/min speed. The machine can produce multilayer film laminates in any thickness and go as thick as 450 microns. The laminate could be a combination of different materials such as PP, PET, PE, Nylon, Aluminium foil or Paper. A dedicated sheet cutter of the same width has also been installed next to the machine to process its output.

As the machine can laminate structures as thick as 450 microns, it would help the company serve customers requiring thick film laminates. Some of the applications areas of thick laminates include graphic arts, baggage tags, retort & stand-up pouches, high-strength hanging labels, aseptic boxes & luncheon trays, composites for construction & auto-segment etc. The machine could also help company with the R&D testing during new pro duct development process.
