FLEX FILMS new BOPP film plant in Hungary: acquired FILTRO from INFORMA to improve production performance
February 16, 2022
FILTRO, one of our flagship products, has been acquired by FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT, Rétság, Hungary. This new business relationship will improve the production performance of the Hungary company.
FLEX FILMS is a renowned Indian company making packaging films that includes BOPP, BOPET, CPP, and Speciality films.
FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT’s production capacity is over 42,000 tons/year with a BOPP film extrusion line of 10.4m and three metallizers of 2.85m with 24,000 tons/year.
FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT started operations in 2021 and needed slitting optimization software. FILTRO minimizes the production of scraps during the slitting of customer rolls from the jumbo roll and keeps the number of setups under control when setting the slitter. FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT has chosen FILTRO since it is part of the TANGRAM integrated solution for companies producing and slitting plastic films.
INFORMA’s significant experience in installing FILTRO in many film production systems allows us to confidently state that FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT will obtain considerable improvements. FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT started using the software with just a few hours of training and immediately saved the scrap and time required to produce a slitting plan.
Special thanks to Mr. Miklós Böröcz – Deputy General Manager, Production at FLEX FILMS EUROPA KFT for sponsoring and pushing the purchase of FILTRO as a first step for the implementation of TANGRAM in the Hungarian plant. Another mention to Mr. Sundeep Saksena – Chief Operating Officer / Business Head at FLEX FILMS EUROPA SP. Z.O.O, with whom Informa has collaborated since the plant in Poland and worked actively to have FILTRO quickly.
FILTRO is a combinatorial solver. The software considers the process and machine constraints, and it has full integration with the Tangram Suite (Scheduling. and M.E.S.)
• minimization of trim and setup waste – Primary slitter
• maximization of intermediate roll widths
• minimization of Metalizer/Secondary slitter trim/setups
• multi-width optimization
• defect optimization
• cardboard core optimization
Since 1986, INFORMA has been fully dedicated to studying and solving optimization problems in production planning, specifically for manufacturing and distribution companies.
INFORMA has become highly specialized in optimizing the cutting of materials, scheduling the production planning to order confirmation, transportation planning, and truck/container loading for goods delivery.
