Macro Focuses On Food Packaging At Plast
Canadian film and sheet extrusion systems supplier, Macro, is focusing its Plast 2012 presentation on the food packaging market.
The company supplies a wide variety of extrusion solutions to this market through their blown, cast, biaxially oriented, and extrusion coating extrusion systems. Their key experience is with high barrier systems that can process barrier materials such as PA, EVOH, and PVdC to create multilayer packaging film structures.
“The requirement to protect the product from microbial degradation, physical damage and chemical changes combined with the need to offer attractive shelf appeal presents a challenging combination” says Andrew Erskine, Macro’s Marketing Manager. “Our experience allows us to sift through these challenges and provide the appropriate solution to our customers based on their specific needs and objectives.”
One of the key technologies Macro will highlight is its biaxially oriented (biax) film lines, which Macro supplies in 2 and 3 bubble configurations. The lines are supplied in several models each with its own specific extrusion and orientation technologies. This allows Macro’s biax systems to produce films with a wide variety of properties such as low to high shrink, low to high barrier and a large range of film Macro’s 7-Layer 2 Bubble Biax Film Line widths. The lines are used to produce meat and cheese shrink films and bags, artificial casings, and other food packaging films.
In addition to Macro’s technology offering, the company is also using Plast 2012 to further highlight the creation of its European facility, established in 2011 and encouraging customers to meet its new European staff members. “The increase to Macro’s global footprint is a result of the company’s committed objective to better serve its European customers through sales support, technical service and future manufacturing” says Erskine.
