Based in Gujarat, Rahil (CPP) Films has purchased its first BOBST vacuum metallizer, a K5 VISION 2450mm for the production of metallized CPP film.
Rahil (CPP) Films produces metallized CPP film for the food packaging industry and supplies to both domestic and overseas customers; due to the increased demand for this type of film, Rahil needed to increase their capacity by purchasing a new metallizer.
As CPP is a very heat sensitive film, it requires careful handling; the BOBST K5 VISION is the perfect machine as it has been designed to handle a wide variety of film types in particular thin gauge and heat sensitive films and can run at up to 840m/min, making it ideal for CPP and PE film producers. The machine which incorporates a Ø600mm drum provides better film cooling due to the increased surface area of the drum, with additional cooling provided by the 2-zone gas wedge which provides better conduction of heat between the substrate and the drum which is important for these thermally sensitive materials.
Rahil (CPP) Films chose BOBST due to their know-how in the area of metallizing heat-sensitive films and the innovations the K5 VISION has in this area as well as the fact that they view BOBST as the best European brand of vacuum metallizers.
Mr Gaurav Mehta, CEO of Rahil (CPP) Films commenting on the new machine, said “When we decided to increase our vacuum metallizing capacity to meet demand, BOBST was our first choice due to their reputation in the industry. The machine is now installed and is running well and we are confident that we made the right decision, we look forward to continuing our relationship with BOBST in the future”
