The Bolloré Plastic Films Division in Britanny, specialized in manufacturing of ultrathin packaging shrink films and di-electric films for capacitors, was looking to replace outdated non-Kongskilde venturi equipment for trim handling.

The choice of an updated Kongskilde system was primarily based on superior design, low noise level, and pipe fixing with rapid clamps.

The Solution

The heart of the solution is the Kongskilde Multiair with frequency converter allowing to adjust the suction level to the desired value. It is designed to be cost effective with low operating and maintenance costs.

Main Benefits

  • Increased productivity at the Bolloré workshop by 20%
  • Manpower reduction by elimination of trolley
  • Clean edges automatically arriving in the right shredder
  • No specific maintenance needed
