Starlinger: Technology For Education
Turkey - a stronghold of the woven PP bag industry
The Starlinger alpha 6 looms are designed to produce fabric out of polypropylene/poly-ethylene tapes which is used for woven plastic packaging production. Gaziantep is a major production center for woven PP fabric and machine-made carpets, and covers around 50 % of the total bag production volume of Turkey, which amounts to a value of USD 500 million1. "Turkey is one of the most important markets for Starlinger", confirms Angelika Huemer. "Not only do we have many long-time customers here; Turkish woven sack producers are always interested in innovations and many of our latest machine developments go to Turkey first."The Austrian engineering company is the leading supplier of machinery and complete lines for woven plastic bag production worldwide. In the course of the past three decades Starlinger has installed around 4,800 circular looms including the corresponding upstream and downstream machinery for woven PP bag production in Turkey. To ensure fast and efficient customer service, a team of well-trained Turkish service engineers based in Gaziantep provides immediate technical support for all the Starlinger machinery installed in the country.
