The machine received great feedback from Indian converters and was a huge success. Innovation to create value-added differentiation being the guiding vector at Uflex, the quest for re-engineering to come up with something more evolved and endearing to address customer needs toward various types of applications continued.
Ajay Tandon, president/CEO-Engineering Business, Uflex Limited, says, “This re-engineering and value addition gave birth to extrusion coater/laminators as Mono Extruder, Co-Extruder and Tandem Extruder variants.
"To meet the principal application of extrusion coating / lamination, Mono Extruder is good enough. However, considering the running costs and flexibility to play with various polymers, Co-Extruders are getting increasingly popular. In addition to economizing the costs, Co-Extruders also play an important role towards enhancing barrier properties owing to multi-layered combination. Tandem Extruder has been designed so as to execute multi-layered jobs in single run for saving upon the process time.
"The fact that, in addition to the delivered machine, four more machines are being currently manufactured at our plant in Noida proves the credibility that Uflex as a manufacturer of converting and packaging machinery enjoys.
"We have a powerful feedback loop that helps us tap the pulse of the market. It is for this important feedback which we received from converters that we were able to give unparalleled features to the extrusion coater/laminators including auto adjustment of the silicone belt, movement of Extruder / T-Die in three axes...x-y-z, possibility of top and bottom splicing to name just a few.
The moment of truth dawned upon us when our Extrusion Lamination Machine EL-1300 was highly appreciated not only by domestic convertors and professionals from the industry but also by one of the leading manufacturers of extrusion-coating machines from the West.”
