A matter of weeks after introducing the revolutionary Together technology at the MIAC event in Italy, Futura has received the first two orders for Together converting and packaging lines, a solution born out of Futura’s technical partnership with Plusline announced in October 2019. The clients remain confidential and start-up is due at the end of 2020.
Futura’s technical partnership with Plusline was conceived with the aim of introducing radical innovations, the first of which is Together, a game-changing solution to convert logs into shelf-ready packs. Together is an integrated system which can be installed downstream of any existing or new converting rewinder line, not necessarily produced by Futura, thus opening opportunities both for setting up new plants, and for making existing lines much more efficient.
“The market is always curious but naturally also cautious about innovations which represent a major departure from standard solutions,” said Piero Ceccon, CEO of Futura. “The fact that the validity of Together has been confirmed so soon after its launch is a welcome affirmation of this cutting-edge technology.”
