A new silicone coating line with: optimized silicone application quantity per square meter: (0,3 to 1grs/m2), increased process speed: (400 mts/min.), inline flexographic three colour printing.
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
- Automatic non-stop shaftless turret unwinder.
- 3 servo driven flexo-stack printing units.
- Offset gravure coating head for solvent less silicone application.
- Drying section with driven rolls arched (12 modules x 3 mtrs).
- Direct Natural Gas burner
- Cooling system with 3 chill rolls calenders.
- Steam humidifier and web conditioning system.
- Automatic non-stop shaftless turret type rewinder.
Key Technology Achievements
- High speed silicone coating head.
- High quality silicone application: 300m/mn – till 0,3 gr/m2 application on 1700mm width
- Easy operation and fast changeovers with high productivity equipment.
Business added value
- Increased productivity thanks to high speed and non-stop automatic systems.
- Improved time to market thanks to high speed production.
- Optimized variable production cost (OEE optimized view) thanks to multiple processes in-line.
- Penetration to new market sectors thanks to less production due to low silicone application.
