Goebel Adapts Rapid–di Slitter

Monday, January 26, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Goebel announced the adaptation of one of their major machines to handle the modified texture of the new cigarette paper.  By means of special treatment, the new paper is intended to prevent a cigarette from continued smoldering after the smoker stops drawing for a certain time on the cigarette.  In some areas of the US market, this new paper is already in use.  Europe will comply with the regulation in 2011.

"Goebel has been the market leader in the field of cigarette paper converting slitter/rewinders,” says Wolfgang Ripper, GM, of Matik, Inc.  "Due to the treatment, the cigarette paper loses some of its rigidity so that cutting and winding the rolls (bobbins) to be handled on the cigarette machine is more difficult compared to the old standard paper.”

Goebel has sold several rapid-d1 machines and the first was delivered in early January of this year. For more detailed information on the Goebel rapid-d1 machine (or the complete line of Goebel slitter/rewinders), please call 860-232-2323 or visit www. matik.com.
