GOEBEL IMS is commissioned to supply a slitter rewinder T 2 to Shandong Renfeng China
In July, Shandong Renfeng China, a filter paper supplier to the automotive industry, placed an order for the supply of GOEBEL IMS T 2. The T 2 is a high-quality slitter rewinder that is used for slitting and perforating corrugated and non-corrugated filter paper. The machine processes automotive filter paper like oil or air filter paper in the paper grammage from 80 to 300 g/m² or thickness from 0,3 to 2 mm. With its single-shaft center winding concept, it is a very robust and versatile machine. The T 2 allows a web width of 1,830 mm and a converting speed of up to 800 m/min. Among its features are an automatic shaft handling, a lifting table at the unwind unit as well as an unloading and transport system for finished rolls. These features increase the productivity and efficiency of the production process. The T 2 has been customized for the specific requirements of Shandong Renfeng China and will be delivered at the beginning of 2016.
