EREMA, the global market leader in plastic recycling systems, and TECHNO PLASTIC, the Italian specialist for strapping and downstream monofilament equipment, welcomed more than 60 invited customers and guests from around the world to their "OPEN HOUSE INLINE STRAPPING" in Castelfranco Emilia on 31 March and 1 April 2014. The highlight of the exclusive event was the live demonstration of EREMA's VACUREMA® 1510 T Basic system featuring a downstream Tight Strap 500 strapping line from TECHNO PLASTIC. The interested participants were able to experience the direct production of PET strapping live before the previously sold plant was shipped to the new owner FIPCO Filling & Packaging Materials MfG. Co. Additional items on the agenda included expert talks given by specialists from both companies on the subject of "highly efficient, direct PET strapping production".
PET strapping can be made in a very cost-efficient way from PCR-PET flakes and, compared to steel strapping, offers benefits in terms of safety, quality and handling. With the high-performance, patented VACUREMA® extrusion system from EREMA in combination with an appropriate downstream production line from TECHNO PLASTIC you can produce high-quality PET strapping using ultrafine filtration directly from 100% washed post-consumer PET bottle flakes or mixtures with virgin material and from strapping production waste. The end product stands out through excellent dimensional stability and first-class mechanical properties. The flexible, customisable technology from TECHNO PLASTIC was developed on the base of many years of experience and is designed for extrusion lines for strapping and monofilaments.
