Emsur, a Spanish flexible packaging division of Grupo Lantero, has installed an Enprom eS2T140 nonstop double turret slitter rewinder at its Polish plant in Warsaw to increase capacity for flexible packaging and shrink sleeve labels slitting.
Emsur operates nine production plants in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas, manufacturing premium flexible packaging for dairy, beverages, home and personal care, coffee, and food.
The latest investment is the second Enprom equipment after an eRS2T3 acquired to replace one of the existing sleeve machines at Emsur’s Madrid plant in Alcalá de Henares.
Enprom’s eS2T140 has a dual slitting system and includes an automatic double turret rewinder with reel loading output on the support arm. Focusing on safety, ergonomic friendliness, speed, and finished roll quality, the machine offers faster web speeds, minimizes setup time for new jobs, reduces the time for roll unloading between finished sets, streamlines roll packaging solutions, and helps avoid unnecessary downtime.
‘The eS2T140 is a machine prepared for two types of slitting, both circular and gillette knives,’ said Josep Orozco, flexible packaging expert at Enprom Solutions. ‘This offers the possibility of being able to slit different materials with high performance by adapting the slitting system in the same web path. Also, the turret system with automatic material unloading makes it possible to improve productivity with respect to existing slitters on the market, a performance that is maximized in the case of heavy reels by always supporting the ends of the rewinder shafts. This machine includes an excellent tension control and web guide, achieving speeds of 600 m/min, accelerating and decelerating in less than 25 seconds.’
Alejandro García, chief technical officer at Emsur, added: ‘The new Enprom slitter has been installed at Emsur Poland to improve our capacity to slit flexible packaging and shrink sleeve labels while reinforcing safety in the production peaks of our dairy portfolio. We seek a compromise between high performance and flexibility in a production unit with a rapid service requirement. With Enprom, we are confident that we have found the desired product.’
