In order to maintain the continuous growth of the last few years in demand for speciality paper formats, Drewsen is investing in a highly efficient Questec small volume sheeter from BW Papersystems. A wide range of paper weights from 30-300 gsm can be cut into sheets in a single layer, at speeds of up to 400 m/min. Security papers with cut to register watermarks can also be precisely cut.
Since February 2021, Drewsen has been developing solutions for the diverse requirements of speciality papers on a pilot machine that has been set up in Lachendorf in cooperation with specialists from BW Papersystems. The knowledge gained from this process goes into the planning and construction of the Questec machine, which is tailor-made for Drewsen’s requirements. The new sheeter will be set up in Q4/2021.
This development will provide Drewsen with the capability to process large and small lot sizes, and leaves them well equipped for the requirements of the future.
“Together with the experts from BW Papersystems, we are working to fine-tune the new small volume sheeter ‘Questec’. Our team is already training on the pilot machine, and our practical requirements have been understood and quickly implemented. We are confident that by the end of the year we will receive exactly the small volume sheeter that we need. Our team is already familiar with the new technology. Since engineers from BW Papersystems experience the demands of the production environment directly, a real win-win situation arises”, reports Managing Director Dr. Matthias Rauhut.
