Request a quoteRead featuresVideo

This line of machinery is capable of producing a 'Completed water cylinder wrapper' of Ø480mm to Ø580mm x 686mm to 1942mm long, by means of a two-piece construction from coil. The line is capable of producing an average of one to three completed cylinders per minute dependent upon the cylinder length and hole configuration. Over 200 product recipes can be stored and a queuing system allows 10 different products to be entered during running.
