Starlinger delivers 200th AD*STAR valve bottomer

In mid-April 2015 the 200th ad*starKON valve bottomer worldwide was successfully commissioned at the production facilities of Lucky Star Weaving Co., Ltd. in Sam Phran district, Nakhon Pathom Province in Thailand. After the successful launch of the ad*starKON SX and SX+ models Starlinger’s conversion line series for AD*STAR woven polypropylen block bottom sack production is experie­ncing an additional sales boost. More than 6.15 billion AD*STAR sacks per year are currently produced on Starlinger’s block bottom conversion lines installed on five continents. Sack producers benefit especially from the high operating speed and machine efficiency: the production output is higher than ever, and machine downtime is reduced significantly. The continuous sack bottom forming process and the automatic valve and cover patch roll change during production allow high operating speeds, while the integrated fabric width monitoring system compensates fabric width variations and ensures correct sack geometry. The ad*starKON SX+ conversion line installed at the Lucky Star facilities is also equipped with the optional new generation qualiSTAR II quality assurance system. Any sacks that do not correspond to the defined parameters are automatically removed, thus ensuring consistent high product quality.
