Cosmo Films has announced commissioning of its second cast polypropylene (CPP) line and fourth metaliser. With installation of these new lines, the company's annual production capacity of CPP films and metalised films will increase dramatically.
These new lines have been commissioned at company's existing facility at Karjan, near Vadodara, India which already houses BOPP lines, extrusion coating and chemical coating lines and a metaliser.
The 2.85 metre CPP line is five layered and is designed to produce speciality films (especially barrier films) for various packaging applications. The line offers the possibility of multilayer combinations.
The new 2.85 metre metaliser is equipped with advanced control monitoring system and closed loop auto deposition control system. The facility at Karjan has been developed keeping future expansions in mind.
Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films Ltd, said: ‘Apart from being a focused BOPP player over the years, we have made significant efforts in recent times to become a complete film solution provider with more and more films to offer along with various value added services. Moreover there has been a dearth of organised CPP players in the market and with the expansion of our capacity; we shall be better suited to serve our customers. The new lines are also expected to help increase the overall margins and volumes to some extent.’
