SHP Group boosts efficiencies

Slovak Hygienic Paper Group (SHP Group) has increased its performance and efficiency by integrating a Gambini Touchmax embosser into one of its existing converting lines.

The company aimed to increase the performance and production flexibility of the line as well as the quality of products so it could produce a new kind of embossing pattern with the Flexless technology.

The Touchmax was installed onto an existing Sincro 5.0 rewinder line, with 4-channel log saw.

Gambini said the line allows a three-minute product changeover and guarantees a high level safety for the operators and high quality of the tissue roll products.

It is capable of producing up to six different products by entering the embossing roll configuration via HMI panel without replacing any steel embossing rolls and allowing therefore a real-time production scheduling.

SHP Group has 8 companies in six  countries in Europe (Slovakia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungaria and Slovenia) and its four manufacturing plants produce 100,000 tpy of paper.

It is one of the largest producers of sanitary papers in central and south-eastern Europe.

Its main brand is the Harmony brand that is present in the markets of Central Europe and the Balkans, Western and Eastern Europe.

It includes a complete portfolio of toilet paper, kitchen towels, handkerchiefs, napkins, cosmetic wipes and wet complementing products  for home consumer usage and professional AfH customer segments.
