Starlinger Introduces FIBC Loom RX 8.0

Austria-based woven plastic packaging production and plastic recycling machinery manufacturer
Starlinger & Co. GmbH has introduced an eight-shuttle circular loom for producing high-quality
polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tape fabric for heavy-duty applications
such as flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs), tarpaulins, geotextiles and agrotextiles.

The FIBC Loom RX 8.0 — based on the Starlinger SL and alpha loom concepts — features
electronically controlled settings and technical features that facilitate handling and a smooth
operation, Starlinger reports. In addition, the loom uses new materials that decrease strain and
friction on the tapes and extend parts lifetimes, thereby reducing maintenance and spare-parts
expenses. The loom also is capable of producing fabrics weighing as little as 55 grams per square

Starlinger will debut the FIBC Loom RX 8.0 at Chinaplas 2013, to be held May 20-23 in
Guangzhou, China.
