Weiss Chemie + Technik makes major investment
Weiss Chemie + Technik GmbH & Co. KG at Haiger has invested approx. 700,000 Euros in an ultra-modern foil wrapping machine that is purpose-built to conform to the company specific requirements. Series production was started up a few weeks ago in the second production plant in Herzebrock near Münster.
By means of this new installation, weather and UV resistant foils are applied onto different sheet materials e. g. thermoplastic or laminated plastics, aluminium or epoxy resin plates or derived timber products. The application of aluminium or metal sheets is being tested.
Solvent based adhesives are not used anymore. Instead, a one part polyurethane based reaction adhesive is applied by hot-melt method permitting the application also of those materials that could not be used before due to the solvent based adhesive. Furthermore, the new adhesive is resistant enough as to permit deep drawing the foil wrapped sheet material.
Compared with the old installation, productivity has increased: up to 1,000 units can be produced per shift. The high degree of automation of the installation also leads to a considerably improved quality of the products.
