How well will that go down in the province of Lucca which, has been considered for years as the main European paper magnet, and among the largest in the world.
“Paper dust” has entered into all economic sectors of our industrial fabric, as has the story of AFD, which was born out of this dust. We started working at companies that were building machines for processing, when electronics and automation was in its infancy.
We saw the first PLC on-board machines, instead of the old relay logic, and the programming of the first axis controls of the first industrial networks.
In 1989 we created the first electronic rider roll, and participated in the Gemini project, the first processing machine with dedicated digital controls and first-generation brushless motors. In 1995 we started to manufacture interfolder machines , when we took part in projects with machines that were recognised as the fastest and most productive on the market.
In 2007, AFD was born, giving rise to machines such as the I-Jet500 industrial roller and interfolding IMfold V190. Currently we are working with several transformers around the world. Finally, and the most important thing, we are not just a technology supplier but above all, we listen to and implement the ideas of entrepreneurs that looking ahead.
