Vacmet India

Vacmet India has recently commissioned a third BOPP film line at company’s existing production facility in Dhar, near Indore. It is a 10.4 metres wide line having a capacity of 55,000 MT per annum. With the commissioning of this line, company’s BOPP film capacity has reached 1,20,000 MT per annum. With the capacity addition, the group shall be able to offer faster deliveries along with an enlarged product portfolio.

The new line is a three-layer state of the art fully automated 10.4 metres line from Bruckner with which can produce films from 12- 60 microns. The high-speed line with automated changeovers and automatic consumption of waste shall not just help the company in improving overall efficiencies when running various product mixes but will also considerably reduce waste.


S C Kapoor, president-Operations at Vacmet India said, “This capacity expansion is expected to benefit the industry in terms of meeting the enhanced demand for BOPP films in general. It is going further boost the confidence of brand owners trying to shift to BOPP, owing to its ease of recyclability with the same family structures. The film line also supports thicker microns which is in line with the government’s waste management regulations recommending the industry to use films which weigh more than 50 microns.”

In addition to the BOPP line, Vacmet also commissioned its fourth polyester film line in India some time back. The new line also based out of the same facility in Dhar is an 8.7 metres wide line having a production capacity of 36,000 MT per annum. With these additions, company’s total installed capacity for both BOPP and BOPET put together now stands at 2,50,000 MTA.
