Cosmo Films Adds More Atlas Slitters


SHENDRA, INDIA | Cosmo Films Ltd. is one of the world’s largest producers of BOPP and thermal laminating films with operations in three locations in India, as well as in South Korea and in the US. The company recently inaugurated its 9th BOPP film production line on a new greenfield site in the Special Economic Zone in Shendra, close to Aurangabad in India, approximately 450 km northeast of Mumbai. 

In conjunction with this project, Atlas commissioned two slitter/rewinders—an 8.7-m-wide CW984AP primary film slitter at the end of the film line and a 2.8-m-wide CW800 secondary film slitter for processing narrower widths of BOPP film. Both machines will be running at speeds of up to 1,000 mpm.

The new, high-speed film line is 8.7 m wide and is expected to produce up to 45,000 tonnes of BOPP film per year. The line will be processing thinner gauge films mainly used for lamination in flexible packaging applications. Both slitter/rewinders feature an unwind splice table said to produce high quality splicing, and the CW984 primary slitter is working with a slit roll conveyor system to transport the rolls to both the CW800 secondary slitter and the packing/storage facility.

“We are very pleased with the quick installation and commissioning of the two new film slitters as it was carried out by the Atlas service team based in India,“ says Sanjay Chincholekar, VP of sales, marketing, and projects for Cosmo Films. “We are also pleased to be working in collaboration with Atlas again for our new film line. We now have 12 Atlas film slitters operating in several locations, some of which have been in service for more than 25 years.”
