New revamping rewinder in USA
Pubblicata il giorno 22 July 2016
The revamping of the rewinder Tissue plant in Wisconsin (USA) for AMD (Associated Machine Design) has been successfully completed. The makeover included the installation of a new sectional with a AFE Rockwell regenerative unit and a 755 Power Flex Drive. The revamping has created an increase in production performance and safety.

Following the delivery of the panels in March, the plant has been started by SADAS technicians who then trained the local operators.
