Tailor Made tissue products and 3D experiences: Engraving Solutions expand existing product portfolio with digital services and customized solutions for the new needs of the tissue market

Engraving Solutions, leader in the production of embossing rollers for the tissue industry and part of the Business Area Tissue of the Körber AG Group, has presented the latest products in the embossing field: innovative and highly competitive products that meet the actual needs of the market.

Premiumization and Digitization trends play an increasing role in the choice of converters. The best companies’ strength lies in offering products tailor-made according to the specific customer’s needs. Today customers want to co-create with the supplier, being part of the creative and development teams from the early stage of the project so that their requirements are fulfilled in the best way.

The challenge of Engraving Solutions is to provide customers with innovative solutions that answer and anticipate market changes and help them optimize their manufacturing performance. For this reason, thanks to its technological know-how in the production of embossing rollers, and keeping continuous exchanges and workshop with the customers, Engraving Solutions has expanded its offer with new digital and customized solutions that fit to the new market trends and simplify the development processes of new products. This assures the shortest time-to-market of a new product on the shelf.

Ghost is designed to satisfy the current trend in the tissue market. – Giacomo Bianchi, Product Engineer of Engraving Solutions, declares – It is the new generation of embossing, obtained by combining, for the first time ever, two different micro-embossing techniques – chemical and mechanical – thereby bringing together the benefits of both. This innovative technology, unique to this market, results in a product that is more pleasing to the touch compared to the traditionally embossed one. Ghost is ideal for all high-yield products with refined embossing but is at the same time resistant, bulky and featuring excellent softness, independently from the number of plies and for every product type: toilet paper, kitchen towel and away-from-home segments”.

The name Ghost evokes the special shape of the points, similar to a ‘ghost sheet’. Actually, the profiles of the engravings have been softened, and therefore act with less cutting aggressiveness on the paper. This allows to reduce the strength loss that usually occurs during embossing when traditional rhomboid points are used.

Ex-press is a technology that allows to obtain double-colour products using embossing alone. By simply adding coloured water to the pre-embossing station, on first pass the ply is decorated with one colour, and when it is passed through the second embosser using coloured glue, the final product comes out with 2 different colours providing a stunning aesthetic effect.

The last novelty presented by Engraving Solutions is Smoothie, the embossing system specifically designed for entry-level products that is capable of making the paper smoother and softer to the touch. This helps improving products made using traditional or recycled and unstructured paper, featuring low weight and low quantities of long fiber paper, that usually are less appealing to the consumer.

With a single pass, the ply is embossed on the side portions, with or without the use of glue, and calendered on the central portion. All this is obtained using a single embossing station instead of requiring a pair of rolls or a machine dedicated to the calendering of the entire ply.

The final result is a roll that is smooth on most of its surface and aesthetically pleasing thanks to the application of (coloured or non-coloured) decorations. This represents an improvement for entry-level products that have always privileged price and convenience over aesthetics and quality.

At Tissue World Milan Engraving Solutions has also launched the new tissue configurator Touch 'N' Roll. The new configurator aims to simplify the process of new product development. Through a digital platform accessible from PC or tablet, with few simple steps, the user can create a preview of the finished product, a real-time prototype, even before making a pilot line test. This allows the customer to have an early view of the product and reduce decision-making time.

Thanks to the new configurator it is possible to create your own "tailor-made" product, choosing between three predefined types of rolls: toilet paper or kitchen paper, four types of paper each with a defined surface and colour, 36 embossing designs, eight colours. A total of 1,440 configurations are possible.

The process is very simple:

  1. Choose between three predefined types of rolls: toilet rolls, kitchen towels, away-from-home;
  2. Insert technical specifications (height, diameter, virgin or recycled paper);
  3. Choose between up to 36 embossing patterns in eight colours for a total of 1,440 possible configurations;
  4. Obtain a preview of the final product

The customer can consult at any time, remotely, the complete list of engravings made and has immediate availability and access to the technical data sheets of the rollers. Also, through the platform, the customer can communicate directly with the Engraving Solutions experts, reserve a pilot test and check the order status of new rollers or product tests. A real digital experience that allows the customer to speed up the decision-making cycle and reduce its time-to-market.

emtec Electronic at the IMPS 2014 in Munich, Germany

impslogo2014This year the IMPS – International Munich Paper Symposium will take place the 23rd  time and emtec Electronic GmbH will attend the event in Munich, Germany. From March 26th until 28th, emtec will present different special technical equipment – interesting for all players within the paper, board and tissue industry.

With the application of the special testing equipment from emtec Electronic it is possible to control and guide the complete process of paper, board or tissue production from the pulp to the finished product into the right direction, in order to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible cost.

In the wet end it is extremely important to have detailed information about the charges of particles in the pulp suspension, which can be determined by CAS Charge Analyzing System. Also important is the knowledge about the surface charge of the pulp fibers, which can be measured with the FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer. Furthermore, emtec Electronic developed a new Online measuring device FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly during the production process and delivers immediately reliable and necessary information concerning the dosing of chemicals to the pulp.

A further new development of the company is the new and innovative ACA Ash Content Analyzer. This special measurement device determines the total mineral filler content as well as the percentage content of the typical fillers in the paper industry within seconds without combustion of the samples, i.e. nondestructive. Its application leads to substantial savings in material, man power, time and energy with a simultaneous obvious increase of the measuring accuracy compared to traditional methods.

In addition, we will also attend the MIAC Tissue Conference on Thursday, March 27th  with a presentation – interesting for all players within the tissue industry.

thumb emtec presented devices

During the MIAC Tissue exhibition, emtec will present different testing instruments by which the complete process of tissue production from the pulp to the finished product can be controlled and guided in the right direction to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible cost.

In the wet end it is extremely important to have detailed information about the charges of particles in the pulp suspension, which can be determined by CAS Charge Analyzing System.

Furthermore, emtec Electronic developed a new Online measuring device FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly during the production process and delivers immediately reliable and necessary information concerning the dosing of chemicals to the pulp.

In addition to the wet-end, it is necessary to get an idea of the quality of the base tissue after the production and of the finished product after converting. This can be realized by the TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer, which gives reliable and objective information about the real softness, smoothness/ roughness, stiffness as well as the final hand feeling. The availability of these three parameters opens a huge amount of chances for the optimization of the tissue production and converting processes.

During Session 3 in the conference on Thursday, March 27th Mrs. Sandra Vogt will explain in detail the different functions and applications of these valued assistants and their “Possibilities for process optimization from the wet end to the finished tissue product”.
