Main key steps of the project

  • NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) between the client and ILAMCO to ensure confidentiality of the exchanged information.
  • Customized solution definition according to specific customer requirements in terms of line flexibility (materials and applications).
  • Detailed design of the line.
  • Engineering Project validation.
  • Production process with periodical meetings with the client in order to follow up the construction process, discuss any technical issues and validate a perfect alignment of the Project with the client’s objectives.
  • Assembly and commissioning.
  • FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) in ILAMCO facilities.
  • Disassembly and expedition.
  • Assembly, start up and SAT (Site Acceptance Test) in client’s facilities.
  • Production Ramp-up follow-up & Operational practices improvement.
  • Sustainable long-lasting partner relationship in order to ensure the good fulfilment of the objectives of the Project.

Technological solution scope

Cardboard | film laminating line with sheeting unit in line composed by the following units:

  • NON-STOP splicing DUPLEX unwinder for large diameter cardboard reels.
  • Cardboard web treatment units: dust aspiration, corona treatment, tension control units.
  • Secondary Shaft-less unwinder for film or paper reels
  • Water-based adhesive application coating head with Doctor blade system and Kiss coating
  • Calender and nip roll for production of laminates.
  • High efficiency drying tunnel (natural gas).

Key Technology Achievements

  • Integration of the lamination process with cutting and stacking sheets “in line”.
  • High processing speed and high automation level due to the “non-stop” board unwinding and stacking-unloading piles of sheets in “Non-Stop” mode.

Business added value

  • Combining laminating and sheeting process in line is giving high competitive production cost.
  • Production of low cost recycled cardboard structures laminated with printed film allows improve competitiveness and entering new markets.
