Fudak has successfully started up its new Amica line at its Malaysian facilities in Johor Bahru.
The line will produce high-quality consumer rolled products at a speed of 550mpm.
They will then be distributed to the local markets in Malaysia and Singapore, and some will also be exported.
Fudak was founded in 1988 and employs more than 180 people. It has recently expanded its business and moved to new greenfield facilities.
The new Amica line features three unwinding units, quick-change embossing unit NT 5501, the Amica rewinder, a four-lane Prolog LT log saw and a TDS core maker complete with unwinding units.
It is part of a machinery line-up that includes 14 lines in total, five of which are fully automatic.
Fudak’s president Ann Khoo said the line will allow the company to “considerably increase its daily productivity and reduce its product lead time, meeting customers’ demand even more efficiently”.
