Window packaging in line thanks to technologies integration
Thanks to the collaboration between two leading companies in the respective sectors,
a common project was born: Nordmeccanica Super Simplex SL, especially the new Super Simplex SL LDC that has been customized for this application, has been integrated with SEI Laser Pack master OEM CW system and with Croci suction system.
“The market requires this kind of technological integrations and we, as manufacturers, collaborate and work to give concrete answers to our customers’ needs”, says Matteo Maffeis, Sales Manager at SEI Laser for the flexible packaging market.
INTEGRATION OF TECHNOLOGIES AND KNOW-HOW
During the three-days open-house some demonstrations were carried out on printed paper rolls, on which the single-component glue without solvent was first spread, and then continued in the upper part of the machine for the laser cutting and the removal of scraps and finally the lamination with a transparent film and final rewinding.
The most delicate phase is the laser die-cutting of an already coated with glue material and the scraps removal which are coated with glue as well: Croci suction system, internally teflon-coated, prevents waste from adhering to the pipe walls, allowing a proper disposal.
“The whole machine is managed by a remote control system and the technologies
have been appropriately integrated.
Thanks to this configuration, the synchronization of laser-laminator speeds, the register accuracy, the safety functions, the reliability in the scraps removal, are perfectly guaranteed.
The communication protocol guarantees productivity, quality and safety. We are talking about a process that can reach a speed of 316 meters per minute”, adds Ing. Giancarlo Caimmi, Nordmeccanica.
The layout of the die-cutting subject can be imported directly by the operator and the machine is able to manage any file, place it inside the laser work area, and automatically, thanks to a data reader and a rotary encoder, you will have the certainty of repeatability of a laser die cutting with a perfect register.
During the demonstrations of die-cutting and laminating, three subject changes in terms of die-cutting layouts have been made, without stopping the machine, which automatically set its own speed, compatible with the complexity of the die-cutting layout.
“We’ve recorded a strong interest from the customers that participated in large numbers in these three days.
We believe that this integration, directly proposed by the manufacturers, is an absolute novelty in the global market of flexible packaging. We had already installed our laser systems on other laminating machines but on specific request by the final customers.
The collaboration that we made with Nordmeccanica allowed us to present a perfectly integrated and easy to use, easy to
manage and to maintain solution that I’m sure will get a big success because it perfectly answers to the new requests of flexible packaging market”, concludes Matteo Maffeis.
