Line 3 Opening
Taghleef Industries is pleased to announce the commissioning of a
new BoPP line at its Egyptian production site in 6th of October City.
Taghleef Industries S.A.E. (T
Egypt) until 2013 has had a BoPP net ex-
trusion capacity of around 20 kt/a. With the new extrusion line, the
capacity will more than double to reach around 48 kt/a, although one
older BoPP line has been decommissioned already during the year 2013 as planned, due to cost cutting
measures. The new machine is a 8.7 m wide Brückner stretching line with state-of-the-art technology to
produce a wide range of BoPP films at high manufacturing speed.
In addition, a new centralized recycling facility has been installed, in which PP scrap from the whole plant
will be regranulated for reprocessing on the extrusion lines. The investment also includes a roll handling
system with conveying of slit reels from 2 primary slitters into a new centralized packing area.
