Line 3 upgrade
In the last edition of
news we outlined our $10 million
investment into a new and upgraded extrusion system and TDO
track and chain.  Designed by Bruckner, the upgrade was done
over two shut-down periods.  We are pleased to announce that
both upgrades were completed on time and a series of extensive
testing of our product ranges and machine line capabilities have
been carried out to ensure operational quality and consistency.
With commercial operations now up and running,
Australia has
set up a dedicated team which includes individuals across the
Group to ensure manufacturing efficiency and quality of film
is maintained.  It is this support network which allows the team
access to experienced people in order to find solutions to any issues
whichmay arise. The upgrade from 3 to 5 layers allows us to move
our white film range from a 3.3 metre line to the wider and more
efficient 6.6 metre line. The benefits are greater output per hour
through the doubling of width and increase in extrusion capacity.
Additionally we are achieving a far better quality web with a
much flatter profile than what we achieved on the 3.3 metre line.
During the testing and operational running of the line, we are
also able to use an integrated IT interface to monitor all aspects
of the line, providing access to real time information in order to
monitor and troubleshoot certain issues which may arise.
