In line with its target to expand its production capacity in order to satisfy rapid increasing market demand and continue its path of profitable growth in this segment, Pipelife Turkey has pushed the start button of its 4th drip irrigation line on March 29th, 2017.
An inauguration ceremony has been organised with the presence of Financial Senior Adviser Marc Vandermensbrugghe who cut the ribbon symbolizing the end of trial runs and start-up of serial production.
With its pipe production speed of 250 meters/minute, this state-of-the-art manufacturing line is not only increasing the drip irrigation pipe production capacity of Pipelife TRI by 48% but also introduces new technologies like fast dripper insertion ability and laser drilling instead of mechanical system.
Technical features of the line are:
- Production of pipes from 16 to 32 mm in diameter, from 0.15 to 1.0 mm in wall thickness,
- Insertion of drippers up to 1.500 drippers/minute at any dripper interval starting from 15 cm.
- Pipe production speed 250 meters/minute. (Speeds of 3 previous lines are respectively 120, 180 and 220 meters/minute)
