German flexible packaging specialist Derschlag has invested in Matho all-in-one extraction system to reduce the volume of edge trims and punched matrix.
Established in 1957, Derschlag is one of the key flexible packaging manufacturers in Germany specializing in the complete finishing of aluminum foils, aluminum composite foils, and plastic foils available in printed or non-printed versions. The company supplies customers in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics markets from its two production facilities in Germany.
The converter was looking for a compact extraction system, able to shred the edge trims on several slitters and punched matrix on several die-cutting machines, and then collect and remove them quietly and dust-free.
‘The performance and flexibility of Matho’s compact design, the very low noise operation, and connection with the return of the filtered airflow convinced us that it was the best option for our factory,’ said the company in a statement.
The solution designed by Matho specifically for Derschlag comprises several all-in-one extraction systems, shredding and collecting the waste. Moreover, all systems are equipped with a frequency converter for step-less adjustment of the fan output. The extracted room air is filtered and then fed back into the production hall.
Matho’s extraction system significantly reduces the volume of waste material by shredding it using a cutter positioned in the pipe system. It offers compact design, quiet operation, and according to Matho, constitutes to production improvement by reducing machine downtimes and allows for further waste recycling through the sorted material collection.
