MIAC Tissue Conference 2021 – MICHELE RENAI / MAFLEX
The full speech by Michele Renai of Maflex during the MIAC Tissue Conference, which took place at MIAC 2021 exhibition held every year in October in Lucca (Italy). MIAC is the international paper industry event that sees the participation of 250 international exhibitors of the paper industry sector.
Maflex introduces a new and original design. From concept to design to final assembly, comes HERACLE embosser/laminator. Built to ensure a quick and safe upper engraved roller change, it offers unprecedented versatility. Thanks to the presence of two hydraulic and telescopic arms integrated in the machine, it is possible to alternate, in a completely automatic way, the different engraved rollers for embossing the upper ply. While the machine is working with an embossing pattern, the operator can simply select from the control panel one of the other two rollers in storage, and the machine performs the roll change operation in less than three minutes, without the need to break the paper web. The strategic position of the rolls waiting above the machine, combined with the automatic selection and change of HERACLE, allows infinite embossing changes. In addition, it is possible to clean the rollers in total safety, without stopping production, simply by bringing the roller to be treated away from the production line. Because of Maflex’s modular design, the HERACLE has its own electrical and control panels, making it easy to install on existing converting lines.
