Converdis, a div. of Cascades Paper and a manufacturer and distributor of packaging products, produces 55,000 metric tons/yr at its Berthierville, QC, Canada, plant. This includes wrapping paper, coated paper, and corrugated roll ends, as well as its trademarked laminated Sello-wrap-40, Sellopack, and Sellecoat products. It's doing all of this faster and better than ever now, thanks to a custom-designed 120-in. Tds Std Hd slitter from Webco.
The heavy-duty, two-drum slitter features 84-in. diameters on the shaftless unwind and rewind, a running speed of 5,000 fpm, and a roll capacity of 30,000 lb.
“The winder is faster and more precise than anything we have ever had,” notes plant manager Hughes Prudhomme. “Webco eliminated any non-value-added features to give us a robust machine with no costly frills.”
