PT Argha Karya Prima Industry Tbk in the Indonesian town of Bogor is one of the leading manufacturers of flexible packaging films. The MONOSLIT will be used to produce BOPP films with a working width of 9,000 mm. The fully-automated cutter adjustment and winding station positioning will play their part in considerably reducing set-up times and achieving high productivity with first-class results all round. GOEBEL IMS combines performance with durability and first-rate technology and provides customer-specific solutions. Following in the footsteps of XTRASLIT and XTRASLIT 2, MONOSLIT is the third GOEBEL IMS machine the customer has put his faith in since 2006.
Numerous converters in the film industry rely on the machines in the MONOSLIT series and as a result, GOEBEL IMS can proudly look back at the large number of machines it has sold. “We are delighted that we are already able to deliver the 100th MONOSLIT machine. The high demand for the machine reinforces our view that we have succeeded in recognising and meeting our customers' needs. We have given this landmark machine a special design that picks up on the link to Indonesia and thus symbolises the strong relationship between PT Argha Karya Prima Industry Tbk and GOEBEL IMS. As a provider of customer-specific machines, it stands to reason that the 100th Monoslit would receive a special design,” says Harald Knechtel, Sales Director at GOEBEL IMS.
The GOEBEL MONOSLIT series – leading through innovation
The MONOSLIT was developed by GOEBEL in 1986 and, since then, has covered the constantly growing need for machines and converting technology in film converting. The successful production line, the MONOSLIT series, comprises both the MONOSLIT with a working width of up to 9,000 mm and the MONOSLIT GIANT, a world first at K 2013, with a 12,000 mm working width. The Darmstadt-based company sets new standards in film converting with this slitter rewinder. The machines in this series are designed for a broad application spectrum. Films that the German company has never converted on its machines are few and far between. The list of films ranges from BOPP and BOPET, OPP, CPP, BOPA, BOPS and other special films, up to applications for packaging and capacitor films, battery separator and optical films. All types of films with material thicknesses between 0.5 and 500µm can be ideally converted on GOEBEL machines. The machines feature an extremely smooth run, even at maximum speed.
When developing the MONOSLIT series, the Darmstadt-based company places particular emphasis not only on efficiency and quality but also on occupational safety. For example, GOEBEL IMS offers equipping the machines with an innovative blade changer. This combines decisive advantages: along with the significant reduction of set-up times, the quality of the end product is increased as blades are replaced in a timely manner.
