Müroll GmbH is based in Frastanz, Austria, and has an additional two European production sites.
In the company’s 25,000 m² production and storage facilities in Frastanz, nearly 200 million m² of self-adhesive tape are produced using polypropylene (BOPP/MOPP), PVC, and paper substrates. At this, the parent plant, the first 570 mm web width Nilpeter FA-Line for water-based inks has now been installed.
At the start, the machine was designed for the production of paper materials, which are used for adhesive roll cores, tickets, and other paper products. However, to expand the possible product portfolio in advance, the machine is also equipped with a rotary die-cutter, a cross-over unit, and expansion options for UV- and LED-drying.
"In our industry, we see continuing reduction of job sizes, shorter product life cycles for our customers, and strong international competition," said Kurt Pichler, managing director of Müroll GmbH. "As a producer in a relatively high-wage environment, you have to maintain your own competitiveness at the highest level using state-of-the-art machine technology and efficiency. Our new Nilpeter FA-22 provides massive support in this effort."
