Extra[+]Core: a protagonist role in cardboard cores

Today, thanks to A.Celli Nonwovens’ Extra[+]Core, cores can be used several times, extremely easily and with clear advantages and savings for all those working in the field.

2016 08 03 130836

Extra[+]Core is a robotised system that allows re-using the cardboard cores employed in the production of large-sized rolls, once they have been previously accurately selected and retained suitable. Often, these large cores must be disposed of after the product wound around them is used up in the production process, and this has repercussions on logistics and on industrial costs. With the installation of Extra[+]Core, A.Celli Nonwovens solves these issues.

Extra[+]Core is a totally integrated and automatic system that entails taking the cores from a portable metal bin with a forklift, analysing and assessing them for suitability and then putting them back into the production process as needed.

The cores are taken by a 4-axes robot equipped with an intelligent head capable of checking the position of the cores and collecting them thanks to a vacuum system generated by micro-injectors. Once the core is picked up by the robot, it is positioned on a machine where it is checked for suitability, verifying dimensions and integrity. The cores that pass this test are automatically sent to the loading line; those that do not, are placed inside the discarded cores bin.

Extra[+]Core has several advantages, such as generating less waste thanks to core recovery and to the reduction of the quantity of new cores to be purchased, with consequent substantial savings in costs. Since it is completely automatic, Extra[+]Core does not require the presence of operators in charge of waste recovery and guarantees objective, repeatable and reliable checks on the cores. Additionally, it offers the possibility to create automatic reports useful in periodical industrial assessments, among which, savings and the ability to respect corporate recycling and recovery programmes.

We often say that everything boils down to the core, Extra[+]Core gives you the possibility of having more than one.

The professionalism of A.Celli Paper’s Customer Service department has allowed the two rewinders at Interstate Paper Industries in Egypt (Indevco Group) to attain high performance levels.

The relationship between A.Celli Paper and the Paper Making Division of the international Indevco Group consolidates one success story after another. The upgrade interventions on their North African tissue plants have been completed. Thanks to the technical competence and the logistic-organizational skills of the A.Celli Paper staff, not only was the rewinder in Lebanon, at Unipak Tissue Mill, brought to new performance heights in October of last year, but also the two rewinders in Egypt, at Interstate Paper Industries, upgraded in November, attained new production levels.

2016 02 08 095654

A team from A.Celli Paper’s Customer Service department, in collaboration with the mill’s specialized personnel, replaced the two cutting units, updated the drive, the PLC system and mechanical transmission of the two rewinders, completing the intervention in just six days of machine downtime per plant. And so even the last two of the three machine interventions for the Indevco Group were accomplished with excellent results: once again with a minimum amount of production stoppage, zero complications and no delays! The customer was very pleased with the quality of the cut, the safety of the process, the ease of setting and precision of the new slitting system.
“The detailed attention to procedures shown by the A.Celli team at the paper mill and the company’s prompt availability to meet our needs and demands has made it possible to reduce the impact of machine downtime to a minimum during this intervention, and guaranteed the necessary increment in performance on these two rewinders. This confirms the optimal choice of a partner renowned and respected worldwide with whom, at every step, we consolidate an important relationship begun several years ago. These excellent results are of paramount importance to us because we are planning other initiatives aimed at enhancing the performance of our production systems, and knowing that we are not alone is reassuring”, stated Interstate’s Project Manager, expressing all his satisfaction and confirming his company’s trust in the supplier chosen. The experience was even more enriching thanks to the great spirit of collaboration that the A.Celli team and the customer’s maintenance team shared.

This is just the latest success story that confirms to what extent A.Celli Paper’s Customer Service department represents a strong and strategic part of the company that takes an active part in the objective of meeting every customer’s needs with a constant view towards technological excellence, even in the case of optimizing existing production lines.

2016 01 25 091803

Following the recent entry of Abris Capital Partners (May 2015), the Romanian Group required an important increase in production capacity in order to confirm itself leader in the manufacture of tissue products in Romania and South-East Europe. The new corporate vision is set to attain important goals in these territories and the investment in the new A.Celli Paper TM serves as an important confirmation of this intention. Further tangible proof is the expansion project at the production sites in Dej and in Petresti, an improvement that will guarantee a total production capacity increment for the Group (almost 100,000 tpy of tissue parent reels).

2016 01 25 091822

The new Tissue Machine, with a 2.800-mm width at the pope reel and a maximum speed of 1800 m/min, is part of a complete turnkey project that includes all ancillary equipment as well as the latest-generation hood design by A.Celli.

A leading-edge technological supply, the distinctive trait that makes A.Celli’s turnkey offer the right answer for today’s market demands in terms of completeness and flexibility, together with the expertise and professionalism that the Italian company has always shown, true added value for customers.

The start-up scheduled for the end of 2015 and completed before the Holidays was finished within the established date (19 December) and allowed Metalicplas to begin the New Year in the best way possible.

“For Metalicplas and for the entire Group, 2015 was a year of renewal marked by important strategic changes and major investments. To grow, we need to place our trust in first-quality partners and A.Celli Paper has shown to be a reliable supplier capable of offering high-level technology, thus answering specific requests and particular needs”, was the enthusiastic comment by the Romanian customer about this professional experience.

Abris Capital Partners is heading straight for success also thanks to the use of technology by A.Celli Paper, a foundational contribution to the #1 Romanian producers: together in the conquest of south-eastern Europe.

Metalicplas, part of Pehart Grup Companies

At the beginning of this year, A.Celli Paper concluded an important negotiation with the Paper Making Division of the international Group Indevco for an upgrade of the slitting section of the rewinders present in their tissue plants in North Africa.

Among the interventions scheduled in the two companies part of a world-renowned group: one on the Lebanese plant at Unipak Tissue Mill, and two in Egypt, at Interstate Paper Industries.

2015 12 02 091306

In October 2015, a team from A.Celli Paper’s Customer Service department, in collaboration with the mill’s specialized staff, dismantled the slitting unit in just four days of machine downtime and two days of product testing, allowing the customer to resume standard production with no complications or delays, concluding the first of three interventions on the rewinder in Lebanon with excellent results.

We are very enthusiastic about the professionalism with which the A.Celli Paper technicians handled the intervention at Unipak Tissue Mill, allowing us to quickly resume our normal production regime”, stated the customer, expressing his gratitude and recognition during his visit to Miac, “and we are very pleased with this upgrade that permitted us to once again attain an optimal quality level of the slitting section, improving the performance of the rewinder and consequently of the entire line.”

2015 12 02 091338

This latest endeavour confirms how the A.Celli Paper Customer Service department represents one of the flagships of the Lucca company, that in the next few days will – with the experience and expertise that have always distinguished it – be involved in another two interventions on the Egyptian plants scheduled for November. And once again, its efforts are sure to result in a satisfied customer.
