Spanish converting machinery specialist Enprom Solutions has developed a modular converting line, specifically designed to produce paper envelopes and folders in different formats.

eFCS 130 combines various inline processes to provide a highly efficient hybrid option. This includes a regenerative shaftless motorised unwinder with pick up, two flexographic printing units, a high-performance drying unit, a rotary die-cutting unit with printed line in register, an exit table with shredding unit, format stacking and intuitive software.

Created through the integration of two independent printing and die-cutting processes in a single line. By manufacturing the final product in a single step, eFCS 130 is said to enable high productivity with reduced waste, and affording the ability to rationalise stock holding. The final product can also be reprinted and customised.

eFCS 130 has been brought to market in response to the boom in online shopping during the coronavirus pandemic, which has seen retailers having to not only cater for an increase in digital sales, but also boost their online capacity. Alongside the e-commerce surge, sustainability issues remain very much in focus as retailers opt to steer away from the use of plastics in their supply chain whenever possible.

In announcing the line, Enprom Solutions stated, ‘With its ability to promote both sustainability and recyclability in the fast paced e-commerce environment, the eFCS 130 is set to provide retailers with a competitive advantage as both the growth in online sales and reductions in the amount of plastic packaging throughout their supply chains.’

Enprom Solutions was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Girona, near Barcelona. Its product range includes equipment for shrink sleeve, converting, slitting and rewinding, label finishing, lamination and hybrid converting. The company was jointly acquired by A B Graphic and Kocher+Beck earlier this year.
