Sustainable stretching: Invitation to visit the Lindauer DORNIER stand


Ladies and Gentlemen,
dear customers and friends of Lindauer DORNIER GmbH,

Food packaging, medical blisters and solar panels: Films are used reasonably all over the world. But they are increasingly being criticized as source of environmentally threatening plastic waste. When the environmental impact of film is discussed, the focus is usually on recyclability and the level of recycling quotas. However, there are other important factors that influence the energy and ecological balance of the material.

DORNIER will present new approaches for more energy-efficient and sustainable film production using innovative line technology at the K exhibition, the world’s largest exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry, in Düsseldorf from 16th to 23rd October.

Among other things, the production and recycling of PET film will be the focus of the exhibition appearance. The film can be produced worldwide with no lower basis weight than with film stretching lines from DORNIER. Thanks to its low thickness and weight saving, the film can be used very economically and with little impact on the environment and infrastructure.

In addition to new solutions for efficient inline recycling à la DORNIER, the subject of energy efficiency will also play a role at the exhibition. For example, the improved air flow in the transverse stretching (TDO) can reduce thermal energy consumption in film production by up to 35 percent. The newly developed DORNIER Diamond Flake Silo, which in combination with a film stretching line or as part of a film recycling system offers the ideal solution for any flake storage, also sets new standards in terms of efficiency.

The well-established and successful MD-Relax clip system for the transverse stretching process proves that DORNIER innovations also have a considerable influence on the success of the energy revolution. This means that film can be produced expecially for applications with high heat exposure, for example battery separator film for electric cars or photovoltaic elements.

The K visitors will also get an insight into the new myDoX® customer platform. The portal is based on the very latest database technology and will add digital order management to DORNIER’s highly regarded personalized technical, installation and maintenance service. It will provide an online shop with permanent availability for original parts (DoXPOS – Parts Order System) for all product lines.

In order to present you all these new developments in detail, we kindly invite you to visit our booth A19 in hall 3.
