The business tour was attended by over 25 guests from 14 Russian and Ukrainian companies. Media coverage, as well as assistance in organizing of the trip had the online magazine "Corrugated board industry".
Special program included the visits of leading manufacturers Wanlian and Dongfang, as well as printing houses that demonstrated the machines features in real production.
At the Wanlian plant the visitors could familiarize themselves with the production and see the novelties as well as visit the factory for corrugated cardboard production, where is installed a new five ply corrugator with format of 2.8 m. The main feature of the corrugator is the built innovative system of inductive heating, which allows 3 times (!) lower steam demand and 10% lower operating temperatures. This technology has no analogues in the world.
Visit the leading heavy equipment manufacturer factory for the production of corrugated cardboard packaging – of the company DongFang allowed guests to explore and analyze the nowelties:
- New folder-gluer lines of the 3rd generation: TOPRA AD and TOPRA GD.
- New corrugator Fosber Megapro-2.5.
Also demonstrated were the dry part of the corrugator Fosber Megapro-2.5, the new folder-gluer in line with TOPRA AD 924 and also the newest line Apstar 1628 RDC.
The rich program of the event was continued at SinoCorrugated exhibition during which the colleagues visited the company's booth of Eterna, where was shown the die cutting machine PE1620-SHL, which has been specially designed to operate with lined corrugated board and laminated surface. There is more focus on the benefits of this die cutter version.
PE1620-SHL model is intended for the production of corrugated packaging of complex configuration and the quick tools changing with automatic stamps centering provides minimal adjustment time. The machine is equipped with a "High pile" feeder, which allows the feeding of workpieces directly from the pile on a pallet, as well as an additional adjustment of the feeder and workpiece alignment with servo-belts. Such a solution, in contrast to the standard options with vacuum rolls or vacuum belts feeding, provides the necessary transporting accuracy in the die cutting zone even with workpieces with slippery laminated surface and maximizes accurate and timely transfer of the workpiece from the feeder to the grippers.
The machine is equipped with an automatic lift at delivery, providing at the output ready for assembly (gluing) lined corrugated packaging with already removed front edge and waste.
According to participants, the program was rich, varied, and full of operating and informal events.
