Stefco Industries, Haines City, Fla. USA, a Cellynne Holdings company, reports that it has started up a new paper converting line that will enhance its bath and HHT converting capabilities. The new Line 14 occupies 25,000 ft2 and features some of the industry's latest technologies. The PCMC Forte, noted to be one of the fastest rewinders available on the market, is capable of producing more than 60 logs/min. It can operate at web speeds of up to 800 m/min while maintaining a high level of paper quality and bulk.

Another component of the new converting line is the TMC UNO high-speed servo sequential multi-roll packaging machine, used for wrapping bathroom tissue and household towel rolls in single and double layer formats. The TMC UNO has a broad range of pack configuration capabilities. The Infinity C-10 automatic casepacker is designed to automatically erect a carton, collate the incoming product, fill the case, and discharge it onto a live roller conveyor. This machine is utilized to pack roll tissue, roll towels, and BRT and HHT packs.

With state-of-the-art electronics and a minimum of moving mechanical parts, the Infinity C-10 is able to pack many different case sizes and configurations with minimal changeover time required. With installation of the Elettric 80 Dragon Palletizing Island and Barge LGV System, a Dragon robot will work in conjunction with the Fanuc palletizing robot to automate the pallitization of cartons, bundles, and poly packs for Display Ready Pallets (DRPs). Stefco has also upgraded its LGV (Laser Guided Vehicles) systems. Now, barge-style LGVs will be used to remove finished goods from the ends for the palletizers and deposit them at the centralized stretch wrapping station.

In addition to the added capacity of Line 14, Stefco is also in the process of upgrading two other existing converting lines at its Haines City location. An upgrade of its Bretting Small Roll Bath Tissue line l launched last month includes a new cutting-edge winding head and tail sealer. An additional VTP wrapper will be inserted into the line along with a new case packing system. The upgrade will allow for doubled capacity and improve overall product quality. Stefco will also upgrade the folding section of its Multifold converting line. This upgrade will bring added productivity and enhance the quality of Stefco's products.
