Foil slitter helping to optimize the material flow at Spaljisten

Machine operator Barbara is handling a foil roll that has been cut into size.

Spaljisten's highly automated production facility in Åseda, Småland, is in continuous development. We have ambitious goals and work for more innovative solutions to take our production to the next level.

One of the latest innovations in Spaljisten is a foil cutter that has been supplied to us from Cattorini in Italy. An industry-specific machine that we can greatly benefit from.

So, why this machine? The improvement lies mainly in the fact that we now can buy parent rolls of foil. That is foil rolls in full format, instead of rolls in various pre-cut sizes as until now. Thereafter, we cut them down to sizes that fit our different lines. It is an advancement in our daily work that increases flexibility, reduces costs, and contributes to further optimization of the material flow in the factory. By working with internal orders instead of external ones, we can act immediately and get the correct format delivered to the machine faster. At the same time, we reduce the number of different types of foil rolls we need to buy, and it becomes easier to ensure the correct stock.

As a part of the project, we are also installing industrial manipulators and hoists – lifting devices that make work even more efficient. These make handling foil rolls easier for our employees and contribute to a faster workflow.

The installation of the foil slitter is part of a larger investment and innovation plan. The increased flexibility will primarily supply the new HGL II foil wrapping line.

We believe that keeping a lively culture of innovation is important to continuously streamline our processes and reduce our climate footprint. As a next step in the project, we are drafting a comprehensive system for handling residual products. We want to be able to separate the different types of foil automatically to enable more efficient recycling. We will continue to challenge ourselves to get better and do better.

This combined with our skilled team makes Spaljisten a top-class international supplier of foiled products.
