The Altair Vega 160GL automatic folder-gluer line (Italy) has been launched at the Arkhbum Voronezh plant (Maslovskiy industrial park, Novousmanskiy region, a part of Pulp Mill Holding).
The Vega Altair is designed for production of small-sized RSC, SLB, double wall boxes and 4/6 angular boxes at the rate of 20-200 m/min.
The line is equipped with Mosca strapping machines (Germany) intended for comprehensively leveling the products bale with subsequent strapping.
In the beginning of March this year, the plant will launch the automatic line of flat-bed die cutting with 3-color printing.
The flat die cutting line with 3-color printing is a whole chain of equipment, which consists of a Celmacch 3-color printing machine (Italy), ASAHI flat-bed die cutter (Japan), a feed system, blank parts separation and auxiliary equipment of WSA (South Korea).
The new equipment allows manufacturing RRP-boxes (Retail Ready Packaging - packaging for mass retailers) of any complexity by flat-bed die cutting with high-quality multicolor printing. The advantages of the line are accurate color rendition, high automation and production capacity (up to 7 thousand blank parts per hour), online control of color matching.
In March, the WSA transport system with COFAS (Corrugated Factory Automation System) software will also be installed. Such a corrugated products manufacturing system will ensure the development of a fully automatic transport system with the recognition function of different orders. This will reduce the amount of rejects during transportation, as well as remove the rate limit of operating machines. It is used to develop the unique route for each bale when transporting corrugated board from a corrugator or warehouse to printing equipment or in any other directions, depending on the technical task.
The total investment in equipment amounted to 6.7 mln EUR.
As noted by representatives of Arkhbum JSC, the installation of additional processing lines at the Voronezh plant will expand the products range and improve the quality of finished products. The full automation of the transportation system will reduce transportation losses and increase production efficiency.
Arkhbum JSC is an affiliated company of Arkhangelsk PPM JSC (only shareholder is Austrian company Pulp Mill Holding GmbH).
The main business line is corrugated package.
