At the 33rd Chinaplas, which will take place from 21 to 24 May 2019 in Guangzhou, the German machine manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher will be presenting innovations from its
extensive portfolio for manufacturing flexible packaging. W&H experts in the areas of extrusion, printing and conversion will be at the 130 m2 booth in Hall 5, Booth 5.1 C61, ready and waiting to provide comprehensive advice to trade visitors. In the area of film manufacturing the complete machine range with innovative solutions for the most varied applications will be presented. “The need for new innovative quality forms for special fields of
application is increasing and with their developments, Windmöller & Hölscher take these into account”, said Michael Fischer, CEO W&H Asia Pacific.
This applies to market trends such as PET replacement film in lamination applications with PE/PE which are fully recyclable. Due to W&H´s MDO technology and process know-how, these PE/PE films achieve not only outstanding flatness, high modulus and transparency
for perfect printing but also a very high stiffness and temperature resistant outer layer for excellent stand-up pouch properties.
Also for the production of breathable diaper film W&H offers VAREX´ with Inline-MDO stretching unit for a particularly thin and down gauged breathable diaper back sheet film – a product that is predominantly produced in cast film extrusion and with a higher basis weight.
However, the focus will also be on the manufacture of surface protection films, FFS films and barrier films with up to 11 layers for blown film applications. W&H´s cast film line FILMEX application ranges from nanolayer stretch films with up to 55 layers to barrier, CPE and
CPP applications. The AQUAREX upside-down line for the production of films for infusion bags also attracts considerable interest. W&H also demonstrates competence in the field of flexographic and gravure printing presses with a special focus on VOC reduction
(reduction of volatile organic compounds) and specific design and engineering properties for water-based inks.
Industrial sacks made from paper, plastic and woven plastic materials are also a strong domain of W&H. A prime example here is the new AD proFilm MP film valve sack, which is characterized by a particularly high level of moisture protection. Alongside the paper bag machine range of the W&H subsidiary GARANT, W&H will present the bag machine range of the German company B&B Verpackungstechnik. B&B is a global market leader for the manufacture of reclosable side-gusseted bags as well as stand-up pouches with inline spout insertion and optional leak detection. W&H operates as a sales and service organization for B&B Verpackungstechnik in Asia, thus advantageously supplementing the W&H portfolio of machines for the manufacture of flexible packaging.
