This easy to use, patented interfolder modifies the cut-off of the product and results in significant energy savings

As a key technological partner in the tissue sector, Körber Business Area Tissue always looks ahead and offers solutions that are in line with the changing needs of the market while keeping sustainability and the aim of building a greener future in focus.

"Looking for ways to improve the performance of our technologies and continuously innovating to open the market to new business areas is essential for Körber Business Area Tissue - comments Dettori Daniele, R&D & Technical Fold Director - We are convinced that respect and care for our planet are fundamental elements in creating a better tomorrow for all of us and in the coming months we are focusing on the flexibility and sustainability of our machines that are already in the design phase. MTC ITF Change is the example of this adaptation, we have created a machine with low energy consumption and reduced wear materials.

MTC ITF Change is a solution that embraces this new direction, as it is possible to change the cut off of the product in a simple, fast, and automated way without compromising the quality of the finished product. This is a solution that leads to a reduction in energy consumption of up to 30%.

Another important variable to support sustainability aspects, is the introduction of the MTC Sam Vacuum system which automatically adjusts the right level of vacuum according to the use of the machine, the type of product, the raw material, and speed. The automation of this process leads to further reduction of energy consumption, which varies depending on the type of paper and production speed.

"We design solutions that require few manual operations and that do not require specialized technicians.  MTC ITF Change is aimed specifically at this goal. The elimination of two rollers greatly simplifies work not only in the installation phase, but also during the maintenance phases, leading to a reduction in energy consumption to create the vacuum inside them. The energy needed to generate the vacuum depends on two factors: the volume of air and the level — in the sense of depression — that created on the folding head. With the same speed and performance, with the reduction to just two rollers we have achieved a great reduction in energy consumption compared to a common interfolder” concludes Dettori Daniele, R&D & Technical Fold Director.
