The Omnia will offer customers flexibility and safety in a small footprint
Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of the Barry-Wehmiller family and a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of tissue converting and packaging equipment, have just announced it will unveil the Omnia, a new tissue embosser-laminator, this summer.
The Omnia, which in Latin means “all, everything,” marks a new era for PCMC in the embossing and laminating market. This full-featured machine will deliver safety, flexibility, fast changeovers and productivity for customers, all in a compact footprint. Other highlights include an open design for accessibility and ergonomics, the elimination of hydraulics, modularity for easy upgrades and automatic roll changes.
“The Omnia proves that customers really can have it all in their embosser-laminator,” said Jason Hilsberg, Tissue Sales Director at PCMC. “Fueled by the desire for more simplicity and safety, our design meets those needs on all levels. The accessibility of the rolls from one location makes roll changes and maintenance easier and safer, and the Omnia takes up 25 percent less floor space than our previous designs. Despite its smaller size, it still delivers all the features our customers need to compete in the marketplace today without sacrificing quality.”
The first Omnia is currently in production, and will be available for demonstration in June 2017.
