Futura, Italy, launched a complete new converting solution at IT’s Tissue, which redraws the boundaries for tissue roll products converting for the benefit of customers. Revealed at FuturaLab during the Andromeda Showcase, IT’s Tissue, June 22-26 in Lucca, this extraordinary concept has been two years in development.
In all of the key areas of process continuity, overall equipment effectiveness, safety, productivity, layout, manpower reduction, and finished product quality, Andromeda sets a new benchmark.

Head of Technology and Futura Lab Director Giovacchino Giurlani said that "the Andromeda Concept is the result of a tremendous team effort at FuturaLab. We are convinced that it represents a better way to make roll products in all respects. Now that people have seen the concepts in action, they can see their positive impact in a commercial context. For Futura, the Andromeda Showcase represents a revelation for the future of converting."

CEO Fabio Boschi added that "we are delighted so many people from around the world came to witness this landmark event in converting. The Andromeda Concept was only made possible because of our faith in the vision of dedicated engineers and designers. The status quo is easier, but that is not the Futura way."
