The Filmex II five-layer is a flexible and barrier-enabled cast film line, which comes with five extruders (plus one extruder for encapsulation) and 2.5-m wide. 

TSF is one of the leading suppliers of specialty packaging, including sustainable ultra-high barrier solutions, value-added products for labels, coating and thermal lamination films for the global markets.

With an annual manufacturing capacity of 80,000 tpa, total employee strength of 500+, state-of-the-art R&D centre, BRC AA certification, NABL accreditation, GPTW certified, Golden peacock winners, continuous technology upgrades, new product development, and a strong commitment to customer service and quality, TSF has established itself as one of the top leaders in the industry globally. 

The next investment will help TSF in its vision to become a globally preferred supplier of specialty polymer films. 

The unique die control wizard in the machine provides much-needed flexibility and efficiency in comparison to the traditional cast film processes. The job change (film width and thickness change) is only a one-click task now leaving the operators focusing on other aspects of the production. 

The SMBII extruder screws process all the available materials in the segment. The continuous dosing systems, well-polished melt pipes, exclusively designed feed block and futuristic winder technologies make the machine efficient and productive. The automation modules coupled with top notch measuring technologies help in achieving the best market quality benchmarks.

"We received excellent services and good capability machine from W&H. As a result, our product development has been fast, and quickly we reached the level where we will be launching our speciality CPP range at Interpack, in May 2023. Support from W&H was seamless and efficient. We believe that this investment will make a significant impact on our business. W&H suggestions have helped grow our speciality product range effectively,” Toppan development team said. 

“The crew at TSF is well-versed in delivering high-quality goods in a sustainable manner. Its interest in and purchase of Filmex II was a wise decision since the machine is a one-of-a-kind piece of cutting-edge technology. We hope to serve and deliver this kind of excellence in the future as well,” Divyanshu Katiyar, technical sales manager at W&H.
