More productivity. Less complexity.
Manufacturers are constantly demanding solutions with an ever greater level of flexibility. In response, the developers systematically integrated Hauni LEAD technology, which enables the length and diameter format to be changed faster than ever before, throughout the machine – from the modular drum section to the rod maker. “In the basic configuration, this has allowed us to reduce conversion time from quality to quality down to an unrivalled four hours,” says Sören Witlake.
“Offline/online conversion software with a conversion assistant on the machine makes format changes as simple as can be. In the KDF 6MF LEAD, the fully automated adjustment of the transfer wheel optimizes the brand change at the sensitive transfer point from the drum to the rod maker. “As well as the traditional design. The redesigned acceleration drum features innovative concepts for reducing the complexity of adjustment processes. These include the flexible format track, which can be adjusted without dismantling the drum and significantly cuts the conversion time. Oilfree lubrication guarantees product quality and also minimizes maintenance. “Overall, our LEAD concept offers advantages not only in terms of radically faster conversion times,” explains Sören Witlake. “Optimized machine handling, made possible by our LEAD developments, also pays significant dividends through time saved in cleaning, maintenance and repair work.”
