Futura reveals a new service portfolio and unique solutions within an integrated, Industry 4.0 production process

For Futura iT’s Tissue centers on the new service portfolio and FuturaLab, with its full-size R&D converting line.

An important part of Futura’s innovation activity is the development of solutions within an integrated, Industry 4.0 production process. The aim is to produce a better roll more efficiently, but this now depends not only on the adjustments possible on a converting line, but on gathering data and using that smartly to optimize the lines.

Innovations include: a unique automatic reel handling and processing system; a new embossing configuration concept; advanced dust control; ground-breaking rewinding; and leadership in Industry 4.0 integration.


Gambini’s “back to the tissue future” concept brings papermaking process to the converting line

Gambini introduces the suggestive “back to the tissue future” concept, which involves the tissue converting line making happen “after” what usually happens “before”.

Thanks to the exceptional nature of the new AirMill technology, Gambini brings a part of the paper mill process directly into the converting line, providing for the tissue base sheet characteristics that previously could only be obtained on the paper machine. AirMill improves bulk, strength, softness, absorbency and stability, while optimizing converting line flexibility and performance.

AirMill represents the first step of a revolutionary journey “back to the tissue future”.


MTC’s new FFW300 packaging machine achieves elevated production and increased flexibility

MTC’s range includes fully automatic lines for hand towels production with various kinds of fold (V, W and Z fold), fully automatic interfolding lines for V-folded facial tissue, complete automatic lines for napkins in bulk or flat configuration and the innovative REVO interfolders where single-folded and multi- folded products are obtained using a single paper feed.

MTC’s new FFW300 packaging machine achieves elevated production and increased flexibility. The machine runs at a constant speed and the plastic film packaging is regulated according to the height of the package and dimensions of the napkin directly from the operator via the control panel.


Omet introduces a new napkins digital inkjet printing unit – CHAMELEONbyOMET

Foremost among OMET’s innovations will be the new napkins digital inkjet printing unit. CHAMELEONbyOMET, already installed on several machines, can create something new every time, allowing market leadership and differentiation.

A PC installed on the machine receives the graphics and processes them according to operator-chosen parameters. The producer only needs the PDF file with the images for printing. CHAMELEONbyOMET can be installed in-line on OMET TV503 and can print at up to 200 m/min. (656 ft./min.).

Apart from this, OMET will introduce a new ASV line interfolded products line and several innovations for TV840 and TV503 napkins converting lines.


World preview of a new concept awaits at PCMC

PCMC will feature a world preview of a new concept. Sustainability, innovation, evolution and care: these are the company’s benchmarks summed up in a new term: Carevolution – We’ve got the real tissue solution.

PCMC will also demonstrate a new roll that after attentive research has finally become a reality and that unites all the inimitable characteristics of made-in-Italy technology created by PCMC.

In addition, PCMC’s new Carevolution has applied the same innovation and sustainability criteria to packaging, and during IT’s Tissue, a new concept of primary and secondary packaging will be demonstrated – something unique in the world of consumer rolls.


Quatis quality inspection among series of innovations at Pulsar

Pulsar Engineering’s QUATIS quality inspection machine identifies and discards non-compliant products in 100% of production. It provides upstream machines with the information required to meet quality standards and inform operators of necessary adjustments. Powerful vision systems and complex algorithms for image analysis allow the inspection of each product according to present parameters and single user requirements. Quality inspection developments for other product ranges will also be introduced.

The new MBF 20W for filling and closing pre-formed bags of up to 12 industrial rolls can fill and seal rolls with different formats/dimensions. It was developed within a series of bag filler units, for specific customer needs.


Energy performance dominates new solutions from Recard

In recent years, Recard has focused on developing projects to install tissue machines easily and economically with attention to energy performance, both from cost and environmental sustainability perspectives. The experience gained with the production and installation of over 130 tissue machines throughout the five continents has allowed studying, testing and attaining innovative solutions particularly in energy savings. The machines conceived with these new systems will be the focus of the Open House during the 2018 edition of IT’s Tissue.


Data revolution is key to TMC’s latest development

As leader in the design and production of primary and secondary packaging for tissue and nonwovens, TMC knows the new demands of Industry 4.0 and the importance of reading and interpreting the processes and key production indicators.
