Cosmo Films commissions significant capacity expansion

Cosmo Films, a manufacturer of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films for packaging, lamination & labeling applications, has installed its tenth 10.4 metre BOPP line, which will increase the company’s annual capacity by 40%, taking it to 1.96 lakh MT. Its current annual capacity stands at 1.36 lakh MT.

The new line which was announced in October 2015 has been commissioned ahead of its schedule and has been installed at company’s existing facility at Karjan, near Vadodara, India, which already houses BOPP lines, extrusion coating & chemical coating lines and a metalizer. According to the company, the commissioned line is the most advanced line available in the market today in terms of its width and output and is the first 10.4 metre line to be installed in the country. The line is equipped to deliver both superior quality products with minimized scratches, oil or additive spots & high surface energy as well as consistent quality due to automatic changeovers. The line is also capable of producing films as thick as 80 microns to cater to segments like textiles, which require thicker films.

The line output would cater to both domestic and export markets. The new line is part of a series of expansions, which have been announced during the last year by the company for both its India operations and its subsidiaries in US & Korea.

Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films, said, “The high-speed line equipped with automated changeovers and automatic consumption of waste will not only lead to an increase in power savings but also help the company with its overall operational efficiencies.”
