Muda Paper Mills Malaysia, Tasek Mill: an old paper winder comes back into fashion!
In October 2017, A.Celli Paper's Customer Service team installed and successfully concluded the upgrade performed on an old paper winder with the final start-up.
The intervention, which entailed updating the winder's slitting section with a modern, fully automatic positioning system of the slitting units, allowed the customer to immediately increment production, substantially reducing the time loss during the production change, following all modern concepts of safety requirements for the operators.
A.Celli Paper worked in close contact with the customer and the teamwork yielded optimal results. Indeed, the solutions applied were designed in advance, tested and then shared with the customer's work team. The new configuration kept into consideration the convenience of the operations to be performed on the one hand, and the needs of Muda Paper Mills on the other, in order to obtain the best results in terms of efficiency in the shortest possible installation times, turning an old winder into a superbly operating and productive system.
The customer was very appreciative of the project, acknowledging the high level of professionalism of A.Celli Paper's Customer Service team and its ability to always find functional, practical and intelligent solutions through engineering/design analyses, and always keeping the strategic-industrial demands of the individual customers in mind.
A.Celli Paper is capable of offering prompt & effective consultancy in-line with any type of investment and production demand

The A.Celli Counter Meter Calibration Service is performed using a contactless Special Laser Device, unidirectional speed and length gauges providing extremely accurate speed and length measurements in almost any production environment (Web products, woven and non-woven materials, paper, plastic film and other products can all be measured using the Laser Doppler method).
The Special Laser Device illuminates the surface being measured with an interference pattern created by the intersection of two laser beams. The alternating bright and dark interference fringes modulate the light scattered by the object with a frequency proportional to the object’s speed. This scattered light is detected by a photodiode and the electrical signal digitally processed to determine the frequency and hence the speed. Object length is then calculated by integrating the speed measurement over time.
The A.Celli Special Laser Device is subjected to an annual calibration directly at the manufacturer’s laboratories and it is the only procedure that can assure a measurement accuracy better than 0.05% and repeatability better than 0.02%.
The procedure requires that the technician perform a comparison between the machine meter counter and the A.Celli Laser Device meter counter. If there is a variation between the two instruments, an adjustment is then made to the winder's length counting system. The on-site intervention will be performed by A.Celli Automation Engineer Technicians in 1 working day per machine (5 hours slitter downtime required). At the end of the operation, a certificate of calibration will be issued.

The start-up of the latest-generation tissue rewinder manufactured by A.Celli Paper and sold last year in the UK to customer Sofidel, internationally renowned Italian player and tissue market leader, was concluded on 25 January 2017 with excellent results!
In just 8 months, the machine, a rewinder Mod. 865 shafted in a 3400-mm format was built, installed at the Sofidel UK facilities in Lancaster and started up to the full satisfaction of the customers who signed the acceptance certificate.
The start-up took place with no delays and is certainly an additional piece added to the mosaic of collaborations that A.Celli Paper is collecting in regards to this major Italian group.
The Sofidel Group

Established in 1966, the Group has subsidiaries in 13 countries – Italy, Spain, the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Romania, Turkey and the USA - with more than 5,500 employees, a consolidated turnover of 1,809 million Euros (2015) and a production capacity of over one million tonnes per year (1,058,000 tonnes in 2015). “Regina”, its most well-known brand, is present on almost all the reference markets.

The best choice to manage the adaptation and compliance of industrial machinery or plants.
The A.Celli Group has always retained technological developments and the safety aspects of machines to be its key growth factors. The Group’s approach to occupational safety is a foundational theme for the company, and the high number of plants sold throughout the world in relationship with a practically inexistent history of accidents on the job is the most evident proof of this philosophy.
Today, the complexity of industrial systems requires increasingly attentive consideration of the theme of safety. Preventing accidents on the job is not a calculation based on a single machine but an outcome of the management logic adopted throughout the production process.
And in addition to the normal risk factor, unpleasant unexpected events can arise from deficiencies at the operating phase, lack of clarity in procedures, negligence by operators or human errors. Without forgetting that year after year, international norms and directives to regulate the issue abound.
For this reason, A.Celli offers its customers the complete solution for plant modification, repair, verification and/or compliance.
The service offered includes:
- Analyses surveys and assessment of customer demands
- Engineering study on components sizing and on plant design with reference to binding norms in the country in question.
- Project management, document handling and issuing of certifications.
- Installation, commissioning and start-up
- Software modification and updating of electrical and pneumatic diagrams.
- Review of manuals and layout of new safety devices.
- 24/7 technical support hotline
- 12-month warranty from the date of completion of the modifications.
The best choice to manage the adaptation and compliance of industrial machinery or plants.
