Electromagnetic induction system for hot embossing

“The heating systems used so far in production,” comments Eng. Andrea Gambini, Global Research & Development Director of Körber Business Area Tissue, “are now too underperforming: heating the embossing roll by means of a hot liquid flowing inside it requires a high use of energy, as does trying to heat it with heating system with resistors. Oil systems require dedicated facilities to heat and recirculate large masses of oil, greatly impacting the environment and creating unsustainable conditions. In addition, these factors contribute to lower overall equipment efficiency (OEE).”
