Around the world in 15 days

With the force of a locomotive and clockwork precision, foil rolling mills from Kreuztal-Buschhutten based Achenbach Buschhutten produce extremely thin aluminum foils in strips over 2,000 mm wide and at speeds of more than 2,000 m/min (120 km/h). With maximum surface quality, the strip is rolled to a minimum thickness of less than 6 microns (0.006 mm), about a third of the thickness of a human hair. - For comparison: Operating continuously, it would take an Achenbach high-performance foil rolling mill 15 days and 6 hours to wrap the entire world in aluminum foil once around the equator.

With around 75% of the market share of new modern foil rolling mill investments, Achenbach is the world leader in this industry. – Aluminum foils are used as laminate film in composite packaging for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and chemical products, as capacitor foil, cable sheathing or less demanding applications such as household foil. Achenbach mills operate in over 60 countries around the world.
