Cerutti's success in Turkey

14  December  2017

Another step of the long business relationship between Cerutti and Cevikbas Ambalaj; a converting line for Ispak.

On October 2017, Mr. Mehmet Cevikbas has signed with Dr. Giancarlo Cerutti an agreement for a new 10-color Cerutti press, to be installed next summer at Cevikbas Ambalaj plant (Konya, Turkey).
The press includes all the state of the art progresses of Cerutti technology and will be dedicated to flexible packaging, targeting very high production speed.
At the same time, Mr. Mehmet Cevikbas has decided to subscribe to the Cerutti 24/7 service covering all the four presses running at Cevikbas plant in Konya. The agreement, signed with Dr. Luigi Cerutti, regards the brand-new Cerutti 24/7 service: the innovative modality to supply the remote assistance through an end-to-end digital application, that has been recently launched and soon presented to the Turkish market where this contract has been the very first one.
Dr. Giancarlo Cerutti stated «We are very proud to enforce our market progression, by developing this new project in Turkey. As we are also grateful to Mr. Mehmet Cevikbas and to all his team for the confidence that they continue showing us also through this new order. After the delivery of the de-metallization press that we installed about one year ago, this new press highlights the continuing of this tradition».
Mr. Mehmet Cevikbas said «This press represents another step of our growth as a Company, and underline the confidence in Cerutti as our technology partner. I strongly believe this new machine will reach great productivity performances, giving us the chance to achieve new targets in developing our strategy of increasing of quality and production volumes».

 Moreover, a new wax / hot-melt coating & laminating line has been delivered by the end of November to the new production plant of Ispak Esnek Ambalaj Sanayi A.Ş, in Izmit (Turkey).
The new converting line will be equipped with full-automatic unwinders and rewinder and will allow the production of a very wide range of products such as wax / hot-melt (full or partial, in-register) coating, hot-melt (partial or full) lamination, etc. at very high speed, using a multi-trolley coating unit of the latest model EC 94X HM.
We talk with Sergio Molino, Cerutti “Converting Technologist” and person in charge of new and special projects. Sergio, can you explain us which is the main innovation in model EC 94X HM?
Our unit is capable of using interchangeable trolleys suitable for different coating and laminating techniques, thus giving the converter a unique versatility: in-register wax coating, full wax application with independent coating weights on both sides, full hot-melt coating on one side for long runs and very high speed, partial and full lamination, etc.
Our system allows the preparation of the new trolley off the press, while the line is still working on the previous production.
The laminating group is adjustable both in height and web wrapping, thus optimizing the lamination process for a very wide range of materials and coating weights.
A new coating head allows less hot-melt in circulation, a more accurate temperature control (that means cost savings in term of reduction of hot-melt coating thickness!), higher working speed, lower hot-melt fume emission.
These are all innovation that today only our equipment is able to guarantee.
