SÜDPACK – Slitting and Rewinding

SÜDPACK found the right solution for their trim collection needs

SÜDPACK Oak Creek located in Wisconsin, USA is part of the SÜDPACK Group. The worldwide operating company is a manufacturer of high-performance films for the packaging of food, non-food, and medical products and for use in technical applications. The target areas are coextrusion, laminating and converting. The plant in Oak Creek focuses on finishing – especially the printing and finishing of films.

An ambition to ensure manageable and streamlined waste handling at the SÜDPACK plant resulted in a wish to look for an external partner. A talk with Lundberg Tech Inc. convinced SÜDPACK to go for a Lundberg Tech solution.

“The WasteTech 200 delivered by Lundberg Tech offered us a reliable solution to fit our needs of trim collection”, explains Paul McGhee, Department Manager at SÜDPACK USA, Inc. He continues, “The entire process was quick and easy, and we felt confident and educated when we placed the order. We wanted to avoid constantly having to go to each machine to clean out the waste but wanted to avoid anything loud and bulky that cost a fortune.”

Paul McGhee adds, “We were offered a unit sized for our needs that vacuums and cuts the waste up so the machine operators could focus on non-stop production. The value in the stand-alone system with a continuous TubeBag design made it an easy decision and the Lundberg Tech team remained active and supportive after the purchase”.

“We made the right choice and Lundberg Tech will remain our preferred supplier going forward for all of our trim collection needs”, Paul McGhee concludes.
