In 2018 Etiketten-Becker was looking for a new waste extraction system which cuts, conveys and collects the trims of their production lines. The requirements were that the units need to be silent in operation, free of dust and capable to handle their trim waste. Moreover the reduction of dust volume was also a main topic in this project.
The Customer Statement
“Since we got the waste extraction systems in early 2019 we are able to manufacture our labels approx. 30% faster, as the former problems with the standard winding system are gone. Additionally, we are also able to purchase our raw material narrower which gives us ecological and financial benefits, of course. We are very satisfied with the systems also in terms of reliability, performance, service and technical assistance through Printcon & MATHO”, Markus Fleschmann stated.
The scope of supply covered a CB-1000.1 system for 5 production lines and an All-in-One solution CB-100.1 for the 6th production machine. Both extraction systems are equipped with frequency converters to control the fan power stepless. Additionally, both systems are prepared to bring Etiketten-Beck to the position to make a material separation.
All trim waste materials get cut directly after capturing them, conveyed by a fan and collected in PE-bags.
Each of the trims has a width of approx. 40 mm and consists of mono foil, which is a very abrasive material.
Volume reduction by shredding the residual material using a cutter positioned in the pipe system
Very low noise development
Reduction of machine downtimes
Possibility of recycling through sorted material collection in different PE-bags
