“You don’t need to take my word for it”, says Sergio Tonarelli, Chief Sales Officer at Futura. “All customers who have adopted Andromeda define it as the only system capable of adding concrete advantages and making areal difference in terms of integrated performance: namely process control, simplification, efficiency and safety.” Futura has 11 AFH lines scheduled for delivery in three different continents, North America, Europe and Africa, between 2019 and 2020, six of which are equipped with the Andromeda System. These are top of the range lines, designed to achieve the highest production performance and customized for the specific needs of the target sector, in these cases AFH, and benefiting from a constant process of seeking technological solutions to increase productivity sustainably.
One specific innovative solution, the Andromeda Integrated Robotic System, is the only one in the industry that allows total automation of the loading, unloading and splicing of reels, and therefore guarantees exceptional levels of safety and extraordinary production continuity. The system is also able to manage the cleaning of residual paper left on the core of the finished reel, by transporting it with the automatic bridge crane to the cleaning station, which automatically removes the remaining paper leaving it perfectly clean without damaging the core, then positions it in the loading/unloading platform from where it will then be moved to the warehouse. Operator intervention, once again, is completely eliminated.
In addition, Andromeda allows the automated replacement of embossing rolls and enables maintenance operations from the unwinding area up to the rewinder.
Our objective is simple: the best product
