Bimec seized this opportunity to conclude important sales and strengthen commercial relationships with its customers. By attending events like K, Bimec gains important insights into the market and an understanding of its new needs and requirements.

Duplex turret slitter-rewinder

In order to fulfil the emerging trends in the flexible packaging sector, Bimec exhibited a duplex turret slitter-rewinder, the TCA64C+. This machine attracted considerable attention from many visitors thanks to its configuration with a separate unwind stand and high performance. Furthermore, the high speed reached by the machine and the duplex turret design allow increasing productivity and reducing downtime during the working cycles. The TCA series is also equipped with several automated systems that are useful to enhance the efficiency of the machine.

Bimec also showed a “single-face” slitter-rewinder with unwind and rewind on the same side: the TF. This line now features further innovations regarding the finished reels’ diameters. The TF combines compactness, ease of use and ergonomics with high speed, performance and automation. Innovative engineering and compact design allow reducing space and height and promise results that are typical for bigger slitter-rewinders with unwind carriage on the rear.

Customisation and integration

Bimec also highlighted the many possibilities of integration that its machines offer, since their designs and configurations make them suitable for additional equipment and customisations, according to the different needs of the customer.

Another “single-face” Bimec machine, the STM50, has been selected as an exhibit by SEI Laser as an integral part of a laser perforation system. Perforation and laser cutting are just a few examples of the several possibilities for integration that are available on Bimec's machines. Others include perforators, roll handling, embossing and inspection systems.

Bimec will also attend the next edition of drupa, which will be held from 16 to 26 June 2020, in Düsseldorf.
