Since last December, IBERFOIL has been working towards an ambitious expansion project with the installation of a new slitting line and a new laminator capable of a 1.700 meter width.
The plant in Sabiñánigo, which is dedicated to the manufacture of high quality aluminum foil, is going to finish this year with production of nearly 14,000 tons. This would show an increase of 50% when compared to last year – 2015. Nowadays, the plant has a total capacity of 20,000 tons of aluminum foil and is the only such in Spain with these types of products and market solutions.
The new expansion will mean an additional 40,000 tons of capacity added to its current production limit and will increase thickness options for the range of standard products. At the moment, IBERFOIL is immersed totally in both the construction of the new slitting line and the new laminator that will be responsible for the additional capacity.
The new machinery will start its working tests in March 2017, an important challenge for the technical department of IBERFOIL and for the engineering company RDI from the FAGOR group, which is collaborating and working on all technical aspects of the project.
