Hamburg, Germany; May 4, 2004 – At drupa 2004, the companies of the Körber PaperLink Group (KPL) will be presenting the latest version of their Technical Improvement Program (T.I.P.). This program describes the possibilities for modernizing machinery from the Körber PaperLink companies through conversions and retrofits. With T.I.P.s, KPL supports customers by keeping their installed equipment prepared for current and future production demands.
The T.I.P. portfolio of the KPL companies today covers over 100 solutions for upgrading existing equipment. T.I.P. improvements include conversion to modern control and drive systems, renewals of mechanical components, upgrades that promote cost reduction, as well as adaptations to today's broader range of raw materials.
Some T.I.P. modifications enable customers to achieve higher production output while reducing maintenance work. For sheeting equipment from E.C.H. Will, for example, this can be realized if mechanical grippers like cams and levers are replaced by a newer, direct pneumatic control system. Other T.I.P. modifications are designed to make customer’s equipment more flexible. Wrapmatic packaging machines, for instance, can be upgraded to automatically accommodate size changes by changeover to a semiautomatic drawing of wrapping paper and new side folders with automatic adjustment. T.I.P.s are also available for Pemco, SHM, Kugler-Womako, Fabio Perini and Casmatic equipment.
"Technologies are subject to permanent developments that can improve production processes. With our T.I.P.s we offer customers a way to benefit from these improvements and so to maintain their competitive edge," explains Thomas Grözinger, Head of customer service of the Paper Companies at Körber PaperLink.
During drupa, interested attendees can learn more about T.I.P.s and all other services offered by the KPL companies from the customer service team at KPL's exhibition stand A62 in hall 11.
