The innovative company from southern Germany with 70 years of experience and close cooperation with manufacturers of additives has developed a precision system based on proven technology: the non-contact liquid application system.
This offers numerous advantages for the tissue industry. Your Benefits:
- Free in embossing design.
- No knurling necessary.
- Process reliability.
- Precision and reproducibility.
- Less strain on the tissue.
- High productivity and economy.
- Raise in print quality.
WEKO, innovation with tradition
The WEKO solution
Based on rotating spray discs, an even stream of the finest micro-droplets is generated at high speed in order to give the fabric its individual properties with pinpoint accuracy. The application quantity can be controlled quickly and precisely for reproducible results. The mechanical tissue strain does not come into play with the WEKO-Fluid-Application-System (WFA). There is no contact with the tissue and therefore it is handled extremely carefull. The rotation of the discs create a 360° spray circle from which a part is used that meets the tissue. The remaining part of the spray circle is kept in the chambers of the rotor carrier and is circulated to the supply unit where it is re-used. By continuous filtering the liquid, contamination of the application bath does not appear.
As a special option for this industry WEKO thought about a solution to prevent the tissue web from sticking and so breaking if the machine is being stopped.
Our encapsulated version WEKO-ProTec provides the rotor carrier with an enclosure which can be connected to an extraction system. Contamination of the working environment is avoided and thus safety generated.
