bilities across multiple, global industries,” says Graziano Ramina,
CEO of Ramina.
The companies have already developed a history of working
together on several successful line installations and expect this
alliance to expand these efforts globally.
“Our alliance allows both Rando and Ramina to offer customers one single source,” Flaherty adds.“We know each other’s machinery and have learned how to integrate both lines efficiently.
Through our experience together, we have established clear standards and processes that ensure our customers a smooth installation and commissioning experience.” Customers will be able to
test both Rando and Ramina’s combined capabilities as Ramina’s
thermobonding oven and winding equipment will be installed at
Rando’s New York Research, Development and Technical Center
this fall, allowing customers the opportunity to run trials and develop products on a complete line.
Fameccanica Unveils Developments at INDEX
Fameccanica Group is a leader in the development of machinery
for manufacturing hygiene products, delivering custom solutions
and anticipating needs in respect of sustainable development.
The company presented its latest technologies at INDEX17.
Innovision Machine is a Fameccanica diaper machine concept
based on FA-X P10, with excellent performance levels and high
quality products for end users.“Innovision” is the name of an in-
ternal Fameccanica contest, based on selecting innovative ideas
submitted by its employers. The project started in 2009 and every
year the best ideas are awarded. The features of the machine pro-
vide new solutions for raw materials and innovative combina-
tions of ultrasonic and thermo-bonding technologies. Together
they contribute to reducing the environmental impacts and allow
cost saving of €1.5 million ($1.6 million) per year, estimated for
each baby diaper machine FA-X P10 - 1000 ppm. The seven fea-
• Glueless Cuffs: The thermosealing cuff elastics applica-
tion replaces the standard version with glue. This is a new
process solution based on a thermo-mechanical bonding
system to fix cuff elastics between two layers of nonwoven
in intermittent mode. In terms of tension-elongation, the
Glueless solution offers the same results as standard ap-
plication with glue.
• Fameccanica Lamination System (FLS) with integrated
tape: The in-line application of tape between two FLS
nonwoven layers, replaces the standard FLS version,
achieving a stronger bonding of the tape inside the back
ear. The results are: raw material saving, more breathability, more resilience: the same elasticity performances for
different cycles of use, no contamination with glue.
• Glueless frontal tape: The in-line creation of frontal tape
on nonwoven backsheet with ultrasonic bonding replaces
the standard version with glue. Fameccanica Glueless
frontal tape structure is the combination between the
nonwoven backsheet and a nonwoven acting as a loop
through ultrasonic sealing. The results are: raw material
saving, more softness, pattern customization, no contamination with glue.
• Intermittent SAP & X-THRUE Core Control System: The
targeted SAP application on the absorbent core replaces
the standard homogeneous distribution. The X-THRUE
controls SAP presence and its position in the core, and
returns the signal to machine PLC to ensure an accurate application. Main uses and advantages are: on line
monitoring of the pad quality; retrofit control and dosing
accuracy; easy integration with standard industrial logic
• Glueless Leg Elastics and Narrow Poly: The Thermosealing System for the application of leg elastics replaces the
standard process with glue. Leg elastics are fixed between
two layers of nonwoven in intermittent mode. This solution is combined with the reduction in the width of poly
backsheet. In terms of tension-elongation, the Glueless
solution offers the same results as standard application
• Glueless ADL: The Ultrasonic System for ADL application
