The FV Line of tissue converting machines, while exploiting a known technology, offers superior performance with regard to the electronic on-board equipment and the management of the production process, reaching speeds of up to 300 meters per minute (984 fpm) for a production of 4/6,000 napkins per minute. The FV Line automatically produces napkins of any dimension and material, including the napkins with dispenser fold. The FV Line is a modular machine with different groups in combination (embossing, folding, printing, etc.) and offers tissue converters extensive customization options to suit their present needs and eventually manage different exigencies arose over time. The tissue converting machines of the FV Line are characterized by the greatest flexibility allowing the fast change (average time 2/3 minutes!) of both the napkin format (20x20cm or 8’’x8’’ and 30x30cm or 12’’x12’’), the type of fold (1/4, 1/8 and 1/8 with dispenser fold), and the speed, directly from the operator’s panel.
As part of the digitization project of OMET tissue converting machines, the FV Line can be fully controlled from the main control pulpit with no need of human’s intervention, except for the roll replacement, thus increasing the level of safety of the machine and ensuring the speeding up of production with huge advantages in terms of time and waste savings. The operator’s safety is also guaranteed by the external cabin of the machine, in some parts transparent, preventing him/her from touching the most hazardous parts, and from protective hand guards placed at strategic points on the equipment. The machines of the FV Line are available with 2 up to 8 lanes. The machines can be configured to process inline a mother paper roll with width of 1,200mm (48’’) or two rolls of 600mm (23,5’’) placed side by side. The FV Line has been designed to satisfy the needs of the tissue market for medium and large runs of white embossed napkins ‘with napkin dispenser fold’ but, upon request, it can be combined with optional multiple printing stations.
