ACHENBACH BUSCHHÜTTEN and GOEBEL IMS cooperate in the field of aluminium foils
At this year’s ALUMINIUM tradeshow in Düsseldorf, Germany, ACHENBACH BUSCHHÜTTEN GmbH & Co. KG (Kreuztal, Germany) and Goebel IMS (Darmstadt, Germany), two market leaders in the aluminium industry, will present their first joint development. Resulting from a successful strategic cooperation, the NovaSlit S is a next-generation aluminium foil slitter, combining decades of expertise in the manufacturing of machine solutions for the aluminium industry.
ACHENBACH BUSCHHÜTTEN, founded in 1452, is a global operating system supplier of integrative tailor-made non-ferrous rolling mill machinery as well as foil slitting machinery for the non-ferrous metal and finishing industry. With its cutting-edge technology, GOEBEL IMS is one of the leading suppliers of slitter rewinders and embossing machines for international aluminum converters and rolling mills.
Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of GOEBEL IMS proudly states: “With the NovaSlit S our customers can get access to state-of-the-art technology, as a result of the technical cooperation and synergies in the production and process between two companies, who have been leaders worldwide in the design and manufacture of machines for rolling mills and alufoil converters for decades.”
In a joint effort, experts and engineers from both companies developed this unique aluminum foil slitter. The specialty of the NovaSlit S is winding and slitting both hard rolled and soft annealed aluminum foils. Precise cutting of foil thicknesses from 6 to 50 μm into slitting widths starting from 25mm is guaranteed with this innovative machine. The finished roll diameter ranges up to 800 mm in slitting operation and maximum 1,000 mm for re-reeling operation on the bottom rewinder.
