13 to 55 layers for customization

The machine is now working in production at Trioplast in Smålandsstenar. It was installed in the spring of 2017 and the production line will be working at full capacity in the summer of 2018.

It is unique of its kind and the only one in the world that can switch between 13 and 55 layers. This flexibility is impressive and creates considerable benefits for Trioplast’s customers and their different  types of applications. We are talking about the very latest technology and Trioplast’s latest investment for SEK 60 million.

Considerable customer benefits
Trioplast’s technicians analyzed the need and concluded that certain types of film achieved the best characteristics with 13 layers, while others using nanotechnology, such as in Trioplast’s machine, have 55 layers. When a machine supplier developed a machine that could combine these two technologies, it was an easy decision to make the investment.  The new cast line also increases flexibility to create tailored solutions down to the smallest detail for each specific application.
