The new LGS (Light Slitter Gauge) with its brand name NovaSlit® S is the result of a successful development cooperation between Achenbach Buschhütten and GOEBEL IMS. Its specialty is winding and slitting both, hard rolled and soft annealed aluminum foils. Precise slitting of foil thicknesses from 6 to 50 µm into slitting widths starting from 25 mm is guaranteed with this innovative machine. The finished roll diameter ranges up to 800 mm in slitting operation and maximum 1,000 mm for re-reeling operation on the bottom rewinder. These advantages convinced Weihai Haixi, China, for example, to decide in favour of this LGS type as part of its large production expansion in the future.
Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of GOEBEL IMS proudly states: “With the NovaSlit® S our customers can get access to state-of-the-art technology, as a result of the technical cooperation and synergies in the production and process between two companies, who have been leaders worldwide in the design and manufacture of machines for rolling mills and alufoil converters for decades.” André Barten, CEO of Achenbach, refers to the key benefits of the new machinery concept: “Using the innovative NovaSlit® S, our customers are able to shorten their delivery times drastically. The finishing of soft aluminum foils after the final annealing process and the possibility of the final quality inspection with state-of-the-art sensor systems make the NovaSlit® S an essential competitive advantage for our customers.”
