Seoul-based Daehan Paper in Korea has announced the pending arrival of new folio-size sheeting and wrapping equipment from Pemco, a company of the Körber PaperLink Group (KPL). The SHM dual rotary sheeter and Wrapmatic folio ream wrapper GRM will be installed in June.
"With these machines, our partnership with Pemco increases our sheeting and ream wrapping production capacity by 50%, from 2,000 tons per month to 3,000," said Mr. S. Jang, Senior Executive Director / Mill Manager at Daehan Paper.
The sheeter has a working width of 1650 mm, and is equipped with a high-speed automatic pallet change system and a sensitive products package which will facilitate high speed production of sensitive coated paper products. These two options will result in finished pallets presented to the highest commercial standards. The high-performance wrapper processes all types of papers as fast as 17 reams/min., and is equipped with a non-stop single palletizer.
Until now, Daehan Paper has used conventional single-rotary sheeters, the cut quality and tolerances of which Daehan Paper finds unsatisfactory for today's market. In contrast, the dual rotary synchro cross cutter on the new SHM 1650 DR ensures market leading cut quality and cleanliness as well as sheet length precision and flatness because the cutting speed is always synchronous with the web speed across the full range of cut-off lengths .
The directly connected ream wrapper further increases quality and efficiency. Its single palletizer minimizes the number of conveyors needed, thus reducing overall footprint while matching the speed and output of a standard double palletizer.
"Until now, we have been wrapping reams manually," noted Mr. D.Y. Park, Managing Director. "Automatic ream wrapping by the GRM machine will not only result in each individual ream having uniform tension and presentation, but at the same time will significantly reduce our labor costs and improve our palletized products' stacking quality."
Daehan Paper ordered the machines last September. Both machines are scheduled to be shipped mid-May, 2011. Installation is scheduled to begin at the end of June, with full production a month later.
