Special converting lines

These lines usually combine several processes in line including: coating, lamination, embossing, die-cutting, perforating, printing (flexo), slitting, sheeting and stacking, and any packing and palletizing automated solution.

These lines are always designed following our client needs and this is why we ask our clients to get very involved on the project definition phase where we co-develop the solution to be implemented. By co-developing we ensure that we are able to capture all the client production and product knowledge and integrate it on the final solution ensuring the best performing solution.

Unwinding

  • Single or turret with flying splice at maximum production speed.
  • Minimum width: 300 mm.
  • Maximum width: 2200 mm.
  • Shafted or shaftless.
  • Roll diameters up to 2000 mm.
  • Perfect winding accuracy and programmable tension according to material thickness and stretchability.

Treatment

  • Embossing.
  • Perforation: mechanical or laser.
  • Tension control.

Cross Cutting / Sheeting

  • High range of grammature and thickness:
    • Papers (one or multiple layers) from 18 gr/m2 to 1000 gr/m2.
    • Plastic films (cumulated): from 12 to 500 microns.
    • Alumimium foils: from 6 to 500 microns.
    • Laminates of different kind of materials.
  • Dead-knives or synchro knives cutting depending on the material and the cumulated grammature.
  • Edge cut quality.
  • Increased productivity thanks to multi-roll cut (up to 13 reels).
  • Register and pattern cut possibilities.

Multiple slitting systems depending on material specs

  • Shear knives.
  • Hard roll knives.
  • Pre-cutting and pattern cut systems.
  • Easy knives positioning systems:
    • Laser assisted.
    • Automatic positioning.
  • Automatic sharpening system.

Different stacking system for reel to sheet/format process

  • Vacuum system*: small formats (50-200mm).
  • Star wheel system*: Medium formats (150-500mm).
  • Accumulator and carrousel nippers: large formats (500-1000mm) and folding.

Rewinding system for reel to roll process

  • Single or turret with flying splice at maximum production speed.
  • Shaftless or shafted.
  • Roll diameters up to 1600 mm.
