Already sold to a major wet wipes manufacturer, the Citadel is an all-in-one monoblock packer designed for round wipes in ready-made bags.
With the Citadel, bags are stacked in a magazine and fed into a rotary index table where they are automatically opened, loaded with wipes, liquid filled, QC’d, sealed and discharged.
Benefiting from top out-of-the-box Israeli engineering, the Citadel offers a throughput of up to 30 products per minute and is made to service the jumbo rolls (J Series), standard wet wipes in flexible packs and refill markets (R Series).
SAW will be offering demonstrations of the Citadel at Index 17 (Stand 2261), the largest global meeting place for the nonwovens market, its suppliers and customers. Alongside the Citadel, the SAW team will be on hand to discuss their full line-up of nonwovens packaging machines including full turnkey lines for round wipes in canisters, and buckets.
Shai Shemesh, SAW’s managing director, comments: “Our Citadel monoblock is a significant breakthrough in the world of wet wipes packaging, because for the first time manufacturers of round wipes in bags have a one-stop-shop solution specifically catering for their market segment. Customers only need to look at the success of our Xpander monoblock for wipes in canisters, which has already been a global big-seller, to see the benefits of investing in in an SAW monoblock system. We look forward both to debuting the Citadel at Index and showcasing our full range of nonwovens packaging machinery including our world-renowned loading, filling, sealing capping and labeling machines and complete turnkey lines.”
