Flexible Packaging recently caught up with Randy Wolf, director of business development for Kampf Machinery Corp. USA, where he discussed a slitting/rewinding milestone and the smart data converting factory of tomorrow, among other topics.
Randy Wolf: At the end of 2017, Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH Co. KG in Wiehl celebrated a very special milestone: the order for the 1,000th Conslit model slitter/rewinder. A few months back, the “anniversary Conslit” was successfully tested in the presence of the customer at the Wiehl plant in Germany and has shipped to Technofilms in Guatemala. Here, a remarkable circle closes after 1,000 machines. The first machine with the name “Conslit” was delivered to a customer in Central America. Since then, the Conslit series has been continuously expanded worldwide and improved since its inception.
