The issue of which materials should be used for packaging is becoming increasingly important. Consumers are also paying more and more attention to how environmentally friendly the packaging used for paper hygiene products is. Amotek offers packaging technology for a wide variety of materials including PE film, biofilm and paper, and is providing information on the new, environmentally friendly options at MIAC. The AMOTEK PB192 means that the company is also able to present a highly flexible packaging machine for rolls of paper tissue that significantly reduces the consumption of both electricity and compressed air. For this trade show, Amotek's slogan is "Smart Packaging gets Green".
The AMOTEK PB192 is the new flagship model for packaging rolls of paper tissue in film. Two versions are available: With the AMOTEK PB192 FLEX, the focus is on a particularly large range of formats and rapid changes in format. The AMOTEK PB192 DUAL offers the highest output while taking up less space, with up to 150 packs per minute. As well as the new PB range, there are several tools that are currently helping Amotek's customers manage their production more effectively in the age of industry 4.0. Improvements have also been made in monitoring and consumption, and can now be used successfully on all Amotek baggers.
Reduced consumption of electricity and compressed air
The system features innovations that significantly reduce the consumption of electricity and compressed air. Servomotors that can recover or save energy during braking and stop phases make a key contribution here. At the same time, a new pneumatic system has been developed that reduces compressed air consumption by around 16 percent, compared to conventional machines. The consumption of energy and compressed air is continuously measured and displayed in real time. If there is any loss of compressed air, this is quickly detected and displayed on the HMI.
The AMOTEK PB192 records all process data and machine functions and displays them on a big new high-resolution monitor. This allows any malfunctions to be pinpointed more quickly. The data can also be used to set up a maintenance system that can alert the operator to upcoming maintenance work early on and allow it to be planned more efficiently.

emtec Electronic at the MIAC Tissue Business Point 2014 in Lucca, Italy
emtec Electronic GmbH will participate the first “MIAC Tissue Business Point” in Lucca, both, the show itself as well as the conference. From March 26th until 27th, we will be present at the exhibition at booth no. 04 together with Qi Srl and Metreo Srl – our representatives for Italy. 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.
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. 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.
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”.
MIAC TISSUE BUSINESS POINT
Organisation company of MIAC TISSUE BUSINESS POINT:
Last October, MIAC, the International Exhibition for the Paper Industry, celebrated its 20th edition, achieving a record attendance and strengthening its role as one of the major international exhibitions of machinery and equipment for the paper industry. This event, not to be missed and aimed at updating paper mill and converter technicians, takes place every year in Lucca at the heart of the Paper District.

Having reached its 20th edition, once again, MIAC recorded a full house in the exhibition halls of the trade fair centre in Lucca. The event, established in 1994, has seen a steady rise in the number of exhibitors and visitors over the years and has become an international show with visitors from all over the world, especially from Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, Arab countries and North Africa.
This can be seen in the numbers recorded at the end of the 3-day event: with 270 exhibitors attending (130 direct exhibitors + 140 represented companies), the 2013 edition achieved a record attendance from Italy and abroad. In fact, MIAC recorded over 4,100 visitors from 57 different countries and, including all those attending on the days following the initial recorded data, the number totalled over 5,200 visitors. Even more significant is that the leading role this international event plays for the machinery and equipment for the paper industry sector can be seen in the figures regarding the attendance of foreigners: 30% of visitors from abroad.

“In this difficult economic climate, we have further confirmation that MIAC is an increasingly international event acknowledged worldwide,” commented Gianmaria Pfeiffer, director of MIAC, “We have had visitors from all over the world, with a large number from Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey and Arab countries, as well as from non-European countries. MIAC has therefore showed its internationalization, a path that we began a few years ago and that has brought the expected results. Moreover, the 20th edition of MIAC achieved record attendance: on all three days of the event, the number of visitors recorded exceeded those of the previous 19 editions”.

On this important anniversary, the organising company Edinova S.r.l. wanted to renew the furnishings and fittings of the exhibition stands to create a restyled environment at the trade fair, which was appreciated by both exhibitors and visitors. “Despite the economic crisis that involves all industrial sectors in different ways - explained Pfeiffer - a more positive atmosphere could be felt in the aisles of MIAC. The desire for drive and to emerge from the economic crisis was evident, and it appears that market data show a glimmer of light, even if it is only slight. At the opening ceremony the president of Assocarta, Engineer Paolo Culicchi, showed that he was moderately optimistic about the trends in the paper industry in general over the following five years and this gives us hope. The goal for the next edition, scheduled for October 2014 in Lucca, will be to further increase the attendance of foreigners and we will do this using all the means we have available in order to offer exhibitors and participants a business environment that always meets their expectations”.
