Industrial clusters represent around a quarter of the Italian manufacturing system in terms of employees and local production units and are a unique, distinctive and positive factor compared to the industrial models of other advanced economies.
The plastics cluster is among the areas of North Italy which best represent “Made in Italy”. From the economic viewpoint, the whole chain (manufacturers, processors, recyclers and makers of machinery and equipment) in Europe represents over 60,000 companies, including many SMEs, which provide employment to over 1.5 million people. Turnover is close to 350 billion Euro, with a trade surplus of around 15 billion Euro.
BD Plast Filtering Systems, based in Bondeno (province of Ferrara), is one of the numerous “jewels” operating in the sector that makes up Italy’s entrepreneurial fabric, featuring great engineering skills and high quality. In Emilia-Romagna alone there are over 500,000 companies employing around 2 million people. BD Plast Filtering Systems can boast a series of successful partnerships throughout the local sector, becoming a protagonist in the design and realisation of solutions for the polymer filtering sector.
Research, innovation and quality are strategic factors for BD Plast, which has chosen as its mission to provide engineered solutions and accessories for plastic extrusion lines overseeing the whole production process, starting from the study of the system, to the design of the best-performing solution, to end with the final installation at the customer’s premises.
«Ours is a reality which follows the logic of continuous improvement and, in this sense, we are also working on traditional systems to make them economically better and safer. We offer a complete line of reliable, high-quality screen changer systems, guaranteed by the in-house command over the whole process, from the design of the machine to its assembly at the customer’s premises» stated Dante Boicelli, the Chief Executive Officer of BD Plast. «We make around 1,400 systems each year and this requires a great commitment on our part also from the viewpoint of our technical office, which is focused on making products of various sizes and closely tailored to the customer».
An approach which has led the company to design and create increasingly tailored products, to respond to market requests with high-quality solutions.
Thanks to these capabilities, BD Plast has designed CleanChanger©, the screen changer of the future, packed with technology and created by BD Plast know-how in order to have autonomous operation and to avoid producing any waste, enabling the reuse of 100% of the material. Through the implementation of a cycle of high-efficiency cleaning of screens, CleanChanger© can guarantee a level of cleanliness equal to that of new plastic, with a consequent further reduction in production costs.
