Erhardt+Leimer to Show ElcorruMatic® and other Key Solutions
Erhardt+Leimer (E+L) systems help corrugating manufacturers corrugating converters to increase productivity; cut costs by reducing waste; offer a high level of automation and produce high quality corrugated board. From its extensive portfolio, the company will display the patented web-guiding device, CorrAligner; the patented cross tension compensation device, ELCORR, and its corrugator automization product, ELCorruMatic, at SinoCorrugated 2011
The company develops state-of-the-art products in line with market requirements, as evidenced by the significant upgrades it has recently made to corrugators in terms of:
Bridge quantity control and splice synchronization;
Replacement of obsolete PLC control systems;
PLC controlled hydraulic loading systems for single facers and
Stand-alone temperature control systems for pre-heaters and preconditioners
To be a complete solutions provider, E+L partnered with companies that have complementary production ranges. The company recently established strategic alliances with Kelva and Wellpack , both of Sweden, for their web cleaning and tape application systems, respectively.
E+L works with own subsidiaries and sales agents across the globe. To provide the best support for optimizing the corrugated production process and a complete range of products, E+L’s staff are highly trained. This way, the company can provide excellent Sales and Technical support free of language barriers. For larger projects, E+L’s Sales and Service teams travel around the world to give on-site support.
From its inception, the company’s products have been designed to improve board quality and enhance corrugator productivity. For financial and environmental reasons, the need to reduce waste has been an intensifying concern over recent years.
The quality of corrugated board and the productivity of many corrugators is still largely dependent on the performance of the operators. As order lengths shorten, operators cannot consistently produce high quality corrugated board and achieve high productivity from the corrugator at the same time. The solution to this is higher automation of the corrugated board production process. This is why E+L has developed the ELCorruMatic, an automation network that can be adapted to the specific requirements of corrugated board production via its modular product design.
Key to any international success is adaptation to local requirements. E+L’s international presence, characterized by Sales and Service offices, as well as production or assembly facilities across the globe, is unique. It is also why the company can stock parts and transfer technical knowledge across groups of engineers and service technicians worldwide.
Another emerging trend, alongside the calls for more energy-efficient and low-waste production methods, is the fall in standard board weight and the printability of board for shelf-ready packaging. Here, again, quality control becomes more important the higher the converting requirements are.
Since the flagship corrugated exhibition in Europe was discontinued, SinoCorrugated has become a must-attend event for E+L. As well as a high volume of Chinese and ASEAN visitors, the show also attracts professionals from the USA and Europe. It is an excellent channel through which to catch up on the latest news and trends in the trade, as well as connect with long-time business partners. For these reasons, the show remains a key part of Erhardt+Leimer’s business strategy.
To all the participants in SinoCorrugated 2011: Come and see Erhardt+Leimer at Booth B69A at the Shanghai New International Expo Center between April 6 and April 9.
