Kimberly-Clark Europe has ordered four Gambini (Italy) TouchMax embossers.Three are large version embossers and one is a standard version. 

The TouchMax embosser incorporates patented technology providing extraordinary flexibility during product changeover and expands marketing opportunities with the possibility of new and different embossing patterns.
The five steel embossing rolls always on board with automatic change in three minutes allows TouchMax to differentiate the pattern design between the brand products and the private label products, and to propose to the distribution operators exclusive embossing patterns, to characterize their products and give them more value. This is a real advantage for converters, since with a single embosser they can now extend their offer without affecting efficiency and productivity, being able to schedule a real-time production. 

Embossing of tissue products is an increasing trend in Europe, where mature markets—withthe recent increase of private labels—stand alongside developing markets in which the definition of quality is undergoing a rapid change. Flexibility during the production stage is therefore a key aspect for all companies that need to differentiate their products to face the challenges imposed by the current competitive scenario. 

TouchMax, Gambini points out, is the most flexible embosser on the market that guarantees a consistent high quality of the finished product and high levels of safety, since the configuration of the rolls chosen happens without operator intervention in the machine. The extreme flexibility of TouchMax allows independent configuration of the embossing on the upper and bottom webs, so as to achieve different rolls for different technical type of embossing, diameter (even with the same amount of paper), and appearance, thus satisfying demands for differentiation requested by customers and consumers and the needs of optimization and continuity of production. 

More information about the TouchMax embosser is available online.
