Starlinger organises Open House in India

On March 15 and 16, 2012, Starlinger & Co. GmbH is holding an Open House on the premises of the Indian bag producer Alliance Polysacks Pvt. Ltd. in Jaipur. Starlinger will present the entire production process of AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks to selected representatives of the Indian packaging industry. The individual production steps – from tape extrusion, weaving, coating and printing to sack conversion by means of the patented AD*STAR hot air sealing technology – will be shown in a practical environment.

Woven Strength for Secure Packaging

The brick-shaped AD*STAR sacks are made of woven polypropylene fabric and are ideally suited to the high degree of automation which is characteristic for filling dry bulk goods such as cement, fertilizer and chemicals, or foodstuffs like rice and other grains. The woven structure lends them exceptional strength and reliably protects the packaged goods against spilling and moisture. AD*STAR sacks also weigh much less than the paper or polyethylene film sacks used in the same applications, which means that less raw material is needed for production. In addition to the material characteristics it is the production process that makes AD*STAR sacks special: They are produced without using glue. Instead, the coating on the fabric is plastically softened by applying hot air to bond the valve and bottom patches to the sack.


Patented AD*STAR hot air sealing technology

Alliance Polysacks Pvt. Ltd. has been established in 2010 with the primary focus on manufacturing AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks and is the flagship company of the Indian SPPL Group. Featuring the latest AD*STAR technology from Starlinger, the plant is equipped for the production of 63 million sacks/year, although the production capacity will gradually be increased to reach 132 million sacks/year.

AD*STAR® is a registered trademark and produced exclusively on Starlinger machines.
