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

Integration of several processes in a single production line with the following units:

  • Shaft-less unwinder.
  • Longitudinal slitting unit by pneumatic knives. 
  • Rewinding according to final roll predefined diameter or  roll length using run meter control.
  • Automatic high accuracy cross-cutting unit.
  • Fully automatic inner core/tube  loader.
  • Automatic finished rolls labelling system
  • Automatic finished rolls extraction unit.

Key Technology Achievements

  • Fully automatic slitter rewinder machine for processing non-woven material thicknesses from 45 to 120 gr/sqm.
  • Final roll width between 500 and 1.100 mm.
  • Lateral edge trimming. 
  • High speed production of nonwovens small rolls, up to 270 rolls per hour. 
  • Easy manage and fast changeovers, enabling to change slitting width in just 5-10 minutes.

Business added value

  • Increased productivity thanks to high speed material processing.
  • Reduction of production labour cost thanks to the integration of printing process and fully automation.
  • Easy jobs’ setup and easy operation allowing to process medium and low volume jobs, at low production cost.
