SMI was set up in Daman in 1993 on a 750 sqm industrial plot and is now operating out of a 25,000 sqm plot with a 13,000 sqm shopfloor, converting 1,350 tons of paper monthly with seven coaters. The company produces 100 million sqm of labelstock per annum, exporting to 22 countries with a slitting and distribution company established in Jebel Ali, Dubai, UAE.
The slitting trims or matrix waste covered in adhesive attract dust and bacteria, becoming a health hazard and using space that can be utilized for production purposes. German manufacturer Matho offers waste management systems to extract these by suction from the slitting machine or die-cutting station and to transport them to the central unit for shredding the self-adhesive waste without sticking to the sides and clogging the pipes. The waste is collected in bags in highly compacted form for easy disposal.
“The slitting trims or matrix waste covered in adhesive attract dust and bacteria, becoming a health hazard and using space that can be utilized for production purposes.”
The solution that MATHO has worked out comprises several All-in-One systems. The waste materials are shredded, suctioned off and collected with these systems. In addition, all systems are equipped with a frequency converter for stepless adjustment of the fan output. The extracted room air is filtered and then fed back into the production hall.
