Up to 11 layers
Polishing stacks for thermoforming film with excellent barrier properties.
Ensuring a secure global food supply is one of the most important challenges facing humanity. To achieve this, reducing food waste in the supply chain is essential.
Sophisticated and sustainable barrier films and packaging solutions play a key role in reducing food losses, ensuring hygienic packaging of sensitive goods, improving customer convenience and at the same time being as resource-efficient as possible.
With our advanced, fully integrated and automated MIREX barrier sheet systems, we offer the film and packaging industry a safe and proven solution.
The system concepts meet our customers' requirements for reproducible and traceable quality with digital solutions for process and performance monitoring, but also with high-precision and reliable system components.
This starts with highly precise and reliable metering systems and is followed by wear-resistant and pressure-constant conventional multi-purpose and high-speed extruders for excellent melt quality, which ensure a constant supply to the core components of such a system - the co-extrusion feedblock and die.
Producing with MIREX Barrier
The Mirex barrier lines not only impress with their modular design, which allows a tailor-made line design for your requirements based on proven and customized components. The lines are also characterized by a high overall line effectiveness (OEE) as well as their sustainability.
For food and medical goods, shelf life is the key to sustainability. Films produced by Midex barrier lines can ensure the shelf life of packaged goods, minimize unnecessary losses within the supply chain and thus also make a valuable contribution to environmental protection.
Depending on the film thickness (350-2500µm), MIREX barrier film lines offer several highly efficient options to ensure the best optical and mechanical properties by uniform cooling of the film. Followed by application specific pre-treatment and finishing units and ending with different types of winders that help to achieve consistent roll quality from single or multiple rolls.
Mirex barrier systems clearly distinguish themselves from other common systems with their flexibility in combining layers and raw materials and the possibility of adjusting their distribution during ongoing production.
The patented REIcofeed Pro IE co-extrusion feedblock guarantees the best and most reliable single-layer thickness tolerances, which are critical for ensuring consistent barrier, seal and thermoforming film performance. In addition, it features a feedblock internal edge encapsulation device to reduce the use of barrier raw materials to the area of the film necessary for thermoforming. The additional edge encapsulation extruder usually required for this purpose, as well as the associated device on the flat die, can be eliminated. This saves space, energy and raw materials and increases the OEE of the extrusion line.
