Starlinger unveils its production line at Interpack show
With the cb*starKON machine concept, Starlinger is on the way to overcome the last challenges in automated woven plastic bag conversion.
The cb*starKON 100 conversion line produces carrier bags with different handle types out of a composite of flat woven PP-fabric and reverse printed BOPP film in a fully automated production process. Thanks to its high degree of automation, Starlinger’s cb*starKON makes industrial production of shopping bags a profitable enterprise suited to highly industrialised countries: In a plant producing 30 million shopping bags a year, the cb*starKON pays for itself within a short time. The woven polypropylene/BOPP film compound achieves a high degree of strength so that the bags can be used and reused more than 100 times, thus contributing considerably to the reduction of raw material consumption and plastic waste. In addition, they are also 100% recyclable. The brilliant print quality of CB*STAR® shopping bags enhances their outstanding visual appeal; as the used BOPP film is reverse printed, the attractive printed motif is protected from abrasion and the shopping bag has a long useful life as an advertising medium.
