Product portfolio – main highlights

Ofﬁcially rolled out in 2013 with over 25 units already installed in the US and elsewhere, the SAS is the only truly empirically proven vertical nonwovens donuts stuffer in the world to date.
2. An all-in-one Monoblock design, the XPANDER and XPANDER PLUS. These smart designs boast the only technology in the world to date suitable for a smaller footprint complete 30-35ppm round wipes packaging in canisters. The XPANDER may serve both entry-level players and high volume wet wipes makers seeking manufacturing diversiﬁcation and frequent changeovers.
1. The CITADEL is the world’s ﬁrst all in one downstream packaging Monoblock machine for round wipes in ﬂexible ready-made doypacks. With the Citadel, bags are stacked in a magazine and fed into a rotary index table where they are opened, loaded with wipes, liquid ﬁlled, sealed and discharged.
2. The FORTRESS is designed to create the soft package from a master roll of ﬁlm. The FORTRESS forms the bag, wipes-loads it, ﬁlls seals & discharges the ﬁnished product. As such, FORTRESS operations result in two levels of efﬁciency, both from the raw materials and automation perspectives.
