In May 2018, IMS TECHNOLOGIES S.p.A., parent group of the globally renowned brand GOEBEL IMS, and Laem System announced their strategic partnership. The goal of this synergy is to present to the market an expanded machine range for primary, secondary and converting industries as well as slitting and winding solutions. Nearly a year later both companies jointly present their comprehensive portfolio in hall A6, booth 344 at ICE Europe.
At the booth of Laem System and GOEBEL IMS, interested visitors can learn more about attractive package solutions for the converting of paper, alufoil, film and flexible packaging materials. A special highlight is the exhibited machine RB 4 of Laem System. This center-driven slitter rewinder is particularly suitable for film manufacturers and converters producing finished reels with web widths starting at 40 mm. The RB 4 is designed for unwinding diameters of up to 1,000 mm and a maximum rewinding diameter of 600 mm.
At production speeds of up to 600 m/min, the slitter rewinder processes mother rolls with up to 1,800 kg and web widths between 1,200 mm and 1,600 mm. Short cycle downtimes and highest productivity are guaranteed with this dual shaft machine thanks to its systems for fast loading and unloading. Depending on customer requirements, the RB 4 is equipped with one motor driving both rewinding shafts or two rewinding motors for independent control of upper and lower shafts. The operator-friendly control panel of the center-driven slitter rewinder RB 4 can be experienced firsthand at the booth. As strategic partner of Laem System, GOEBEL IMS will be highlighting its newest slitting and winding machines XTRASLIT 2 and RAPID D1.
The alliance of the two major machine manufacturers Laem System and GOEBEL IMS has internationally generated great interest. Customers value the expanded product range along the complete value chain as well as the transfer of both companies’ longtime know-how into holistic, customized slitting and winding solutions. Numerous customer inquiries and first, jointly executed projects let both partners draw a positive conclusion on their strategic alliance.
