100 Constellation™ sold in 5 years all over the world
Fabio Perini celebrates the technology that has revolutionized the converting sector for quality of the finished product, ease of use and better OEE.
After 5 years from its launch on the market, the Constellation™ technology, patented by Fabio Perini, has reached the milestone of 100 lines sold to about 40 different customers based in 5 continents. “Born and completely designed at Fabio Perini, Constellation™ confirms its position as a landmark in the Tissue world” comments Mauro Luna, Global Sales Director of Fabio Perini. “In a few years it has attained global success, offering the perfect winding, that had never been reached by traditional technology. This goal has been achieved while preserving the product softness and winding quality from the beginning to the end of the roll”.
“When we presented the project for the first time – says Roberto Morelli, Research Senior Mechanical Designer at Fabio Perini – everyone in the company immediately understood its potential. We needed to produce an efficient rewinder that could improve or replicate the Syncro technology: with Constellation™ we were able to overcome it, introducing a series of technologies that make it different from all the others on the market”.
“Constellation™ – continues Franco Montagnani, Research Electronic Design Coordinator at Fabio Perini – has overcome the limits of the 3-rolls machines with an unprecedented geometry. Thanks to the total mobility of its 4 winding rolls, Constellation™ guarantees the highest quality of rewinding even in the initial phase of the log creation. Its advantages in terms of volume and ease of use were so evident that, when we presented the prototype-level offer, our customers were so enthusiastic that they immediately decided to invest in the new machine”.
Constellation™ indeed allows producing rolls with higher density or larger diameter for the same length of tissue winded; likewise, embossing is always perfectly defined, from the first to the last sheet. All these characteristics are maintained consistently over time and allow developing premium products with soft, structured tissue papers and with high caliper. Constellation™ has made it easier to create products that used to be very difficult to manage. In spite of being a highly evolved technology, it is distinctive for its great ease of use. Therefore, no further training is needed: once the setup of the parameters related to the product is finalized, all operations become very easy thanks to its intuitive control panel.
“Our customers have appreciated the differences in quality and technology right from the beginning, by determining its sales success – Massimo Grandi, Area Sales Director of Fabio Perini, concludes. – The initial road show with which we approached customers for the first time was helpful in stimulating their curiosity and interest in the new technology: a strategic and revolutionary step, in the same way as Constellation™ is, to pave the way for the 2015 market launch”.
