replaces the standard process with glue. ADL lamination
on topsheet with ultrasonic sealing, gives a better appearance to the topsheet, which becomes softer and nicer. The
new solution offers the same or even improved performances in terms of acquisition time and wetback, if compared with the standard product version.
• Fluffless Core: The Innovative Thin Core replaces the standard SAP & fluff core. Fameccanica fluffless core solution
is a version with SAP entrapped inside the ADL. The main
outcomes: excellent results in terms of acquisition time;
new SAP immobilization; breakthrough integrity.
Also at INDEX, Fameccanica discussed new improvements
found in FA-X P10X, the new high speed baby pant machine.
These include a cross-direction process which incorporates MHR
ultrasonic multi-up side sealing. Thanks to the flexible manufacturing, now it is possible to switch elastic threads and side elastics
films on the same machine. About the performance: the guaranteed production speed is 900 ppm or 350 m/min.
Meanwhile, Easylife is the new, original suite expressly created by Fameccanica and Microsoft to manage a complex plant
in a very easy way. Control, security and saving are the main features of“The Simplicity Maker.” It combines cutting-edge applied
manufacturing technology with the latest in digital innovation,
creating a “company collaboration network” that facilitates the
management of factories and manufacturing plants through the
collection, exchange, distribution and use of ordered information,
guaranteeing a significant advantage both in performance optimization and economic terms, allowing easy non-stop monitoring production plant performance every time, everywhere.
Automatic Cuff Defect System at Joa Booth
Curt G. Joa, Inc. recently received a patent for its automatic cuff
defect correction system, the latest addition to its family of waste
First developed in 2007, Joa’s waste minimization technologies
are rooted in TRIZ methodology, or the theory of inventive problem solving. These proprietary Joa technologies allow manufacturers to increase efficiency and reduce waste.
“The development of our waste stream management tech-
nologies has been a continuous effort over the last decade,” says
Curt G. Joa, Inc. president Gene Kiela II. “We filed our first pat-
ent in this field in 2007. Since then, our continuous improvement
initiatives allow us to claim that our machine platforms have the
lowest ramp-up cost of any available hygiene converting equip-
ment in the world.”
Joa’s newest waste minimization technology identifies, pre-
