Starlinger: New dimensions in circular weaving at ITMA 2015
World debut: Sewn sacks soon to be a thing of the past
Starlinger is also presenting an innovation in woven packaging development. IC*STAR is the name of the latest sack concept created by Starlinger. This new sack type is manufactured by closing the sack bottom and/or the sack mouth by welding instead of by sewing. IC*STAR sacks are produced on a Starlinger conversion line equipped with a module developed by Statec Binder. “The great advantage of this production technique is the significant material savings it entails,” Hermann Adrigan explains. “The greater strength of the sack bottom makes it feasible to work with lighter weight fabric, not to mention the elimination of the seam allowance required for sewing.” Both coated and uncoated IC*STAR sacks can be produced using the new process, which has the additional advantage of ensuring a tightly sealed sack bottom.
As usual, Starlinger is hosting an in-house exhibition before and after ITMA on its premises in Weissenbach near Vienna, Austria. The latest models of all Starlinger equipment will be shown there in operation from November 9 - 11 and November 16 - 20. Starlinger’s experts in textile packaging for industrial and consumer applications will be presenting the newest machine developments, including the FX circular loom models and the unique dynaFLEX flexo printing concept. Also the new starEX 1600 ES-TD tape extrusion line and the new generation of lamiTEC roll-to-roll coating line will be on display. Starlinger recycling lines will demonstrate the processing of raffia production waste into high quality regranulate.
Visit Starlinger at ITMA from November 12 - 19, 2015 in Hall 04, Stand D127.
