With decades of experience in mechanical engineering and construction of machines, GOEBEL IMS combines extensive knowledge of the pulp and paper industry with state-of-the-art technology to produce top quality rolls for virtually any kind of paper and paper board.  This includes delicate and special materials like technical papers, cigarette, tipping & amp; plug wrap papers, coated/uncoated papers, fine-art papers and many others.


GOEBEL IMS is commissioned to supply a slitter rewinder T 2 to a leading filter paper supplier to the automotive industry, Shandong Renfeng China. The T 2 is a high-quality slitter rewinder that is used for slitting and perforating corrugated and non-corrugated filter paper. The machine processes automotive filter paper like oil or air filter paper in the paper grammage from 80 to 300 g/m² or thickness from 0.3 to 2 mm. With its single-shaft center winding concept, it is a robust and versatile machine. The T 2 allows a web width of 1,830 mm and a converting speed of up to 800 m/min.


Among its features are an automatic shaft handling, a lifting table at the unwind unit as well as an unloading and transport system for finished rolls. These add-ons increase the productivity and efficiency of the production process. The T 2 has been customized for the specific requirements of Shandong Renfeng China and will be delivered at the beginning of 2016.


GOEBEL IMS has recently received an order for their OPTISLIT slitter rewinder from Tjiwi Kimia Indonesia. Tjiwi Kimia Indonesia, a member of the Asia Pulp & amp; Paper Group, Tjiwi Kimia, located in Indonesia, is one of the world’s largest stationary manufacturers that actively promotes the use of post-consumer waste paper and commits to efficient and sustainable operations. With already one OPTISLIT in use for NCR paper, Tjiwi Kimia contracted GOEBEL IMS with the supply of a slitting and winding machine for sensitive paper that allows a running speed of up to 2,500 m/min and rewinding of up to 1,500 mm in diameter. In addition to individual moveable rewind stations, the automatic knife and station positioning guarantees finished rolls of the highest quality.


The OPTISLIT is the ideal solution for the converting of all coated and pressure-sensitive papers such as inkjet paper, self-copying paper, thermal and art paper. With highly developed technology, the rewinder facilitates the operation of the machine and reduces the maintenance to a minimum.


Two RA 2’s were recently delivered successfully to Gold Huasheng Paper Mill China. The RA 2 is a center-driven slitter rewinder with two independent single-shaft center rewinding stations with idle lay-on rollers. The pressure of the lay-on rollers can be adjusted very precisely through a pneumatic system to ensure careful winding for materials with delicate surfaces. With its unique double single-shaft winding concept it combines the advantages of the single shaft concept, that is a fast reel-change and easy new core loading, with the possibility to reach very wide web width far beyond the possibilities of a traditional single shaft slitter.


Typical applications of the GOEBEL IMS RA 2 are thermal paper, carbonless copy paper, coated paper, release paper and more. The two-drum slitter rewinder TRP for pulp and paper production. With its completely renewed two-drum slitter and rewinder TRP, GOEBEL IMS offers a machine for the pulp and paper industry that can be applied to a variety of papers, from very thin and delicate paper up to thick paper board. Through a hydraulic system, the pressure of the independently driven rider roller can be adjusted to handle thin papers like Bible paper or tea-bag paper but also packing paper and thick paperboard for cores.


For short orders, the TRP features a series of devices to make the in-feeding of the web into the machine extremely fast and easy, thus maximizing the productivity even in the most unfavorable working conditions. GOEBEL IMS present at China International Paper Technology Exhibition in September.
