Manufacturers in Taiwan Versed in Multi-function Plastic Bag Making Machines

Despite plastic bags still being the most widely used disposable item worldwide, the production and sales of plastic bag-making machines in Taiwan could not evade the global downturn, with such decline expected to continue till the second quarter of 2010.

Customs-cleared statistics compiled by the Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI) show that Taiwan exported US$670.746 million of plastics and rubber processing machines in the first 11 months of 2009, down 33.9% year-on-year, with plastic bag-making machine being one of the largest exports among the domestic plastics and rubber processing machinery sector.

To offset such decline, TAMI says that some major makers in Taiwan are planning new operating and marketing strategies for 2010, with many doing their utmost to develop larger models to enhance added product value.

40 Years’ Experience
With over four decades of manufacturing experience, Taiwan’s plastic bag-making machinery industry has been upgrading production techniques to widen global market share, as well as step up production of conventional models to meet increasing demand in emerging markets as Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

Many claim they can export made-to-order turnkey equipment for production of conventional, eco-friendly plastic bags, handling everything from factory planning, design, production equipment installation, inspection and testing processes to finished products.

With many makers in Taiwan boasting advanced R&D capability and experienced technicians in-house, the sector on the island can fill just about any order, including designing innovative machines, which may be integrated with printing machines to enhance added-value.

Besides being able to offer self-designed models, Taiwan’s makers also welcome OEM (original equipment manufacturer) orders; while continuing upgrading of design skills enable makers to diversify into ODM supply.

Plastic Extrusion Systems
Founded in early 1980s, Jenn Chong Plastics Machinery Works Co., Ltd. is a globally recognized manufacturer of high-quality extrusion systems for the fast-growing plastics industry worldwide.

Jenn Chong has developed a wide range of plastic extrusion machines, including complete blown-film extrusion systems for single- or multi-layer film, monofilament extrusion system, flat-yarn making machines, fibrillated yarn making machine, extruded net making machine, strapping band making machine, and turnkey plant for plastic and woven bags.

This maker’s extrusion systems meet the world’s most stringent standards: acquiring ISO9002 certification in 1998, ISO9001 in 2000, and the CE mark in 2004.

The firm says it fully appreciates that using advanced technologies is the only way to upgrade product standards, a belief that has driven the maker in the last several years to invest considerably to develop advanced manufacturing techniques and machines.
