Corrugating line Mod. VANTAGE

The QUANTUM corrugator is a revolutionary machine adopting a production process concept that is absolutely new in the corrugated industry. It is available in working widths 1.3, 1.8 and 2.5 m , with different configurations to meet every production requirements.
Quantum is the ideal machine both for special applications – production of fine flutes (N-F) with very light papers up to 40 gr/m2 – as well as for standard products (flutes B-C-E-R).
Its dimensions are very compact. The total length is between 45 and 65 m, depending on the dry-end configuration.
Thanks to its great flexibility the Quantum corrugator can be used for any kind of production of single wall board, particularly for those applications where the traditional corrugators show great limits both in quality and waste percentage, with particular reference to the production of sheets in fine flutes, allowing direct offset printing as well as the use of very light papers. Other fields of application include the production of corrugated board sheets for the highest flexo post-print quality with every flute type , the production of corrugated board sheets with the highest board strength even using 100% recycled papers, and the production of corrugated board sheets with high-quality flexo-printed and coated liners (for example PE,PET, clay coated, silver or gold coatings ) .
One of the most significant advantages offered by the Quantum system is the possibility of producing corrugated board that can substitute solid board in various applications with considerable paper savings.
To achieve the above results BP Agnati has totally changed the design of the corrugator. In the Quantum machine the formation of the single face web and the application of the external liner are achieved virtually at the same time in only one thermal cycle. Furthermore the ideal labyrinth in the corrugating rolls with different diameters and the non metallic pressure roll do not damage the papers. The combination of these factors as well as the fact the board is not in direct contact with the heating plates, create the following advantages:
  • Higher board rigidity and mechanical strength
  • Maximum optical appearance and printing surface quality
  • Lower Energy consumption
  • Easy production start up of the machine
  • Reduction of the operators involved
  • Reduced space needed

  • QUANTUM is equipped with the cartridge-type single facer mod. Vantage SF, to produce a wide range of flutes (B-C-E-R-N-F).
    QUANTUM is the ideal machine for printing houses, that have the need to enlarge their production portfolio with special products and a higher production capacity; sheet feeders, that need to deliver high quality sheet in fine flutes; converting plants, that have the need to become independent from the actual sheet suppliers, having production volumes that justify the need to have their own single wall board production or are located in remote places, where the transport of board has a high influence on the final cost.
    Thanks to its unique technical features and compact dimensions Quantum can be used advantageously for any standard production of single wall corrugated board, above all if limited space is available.

Mill Roll Stand mod. V-PBM

The operational features of the PBM Roll Stand make paper changes fast, reliable and operator friendly, enabling continuous wet-end operation at full production speed.

Splicer mod. V-GVR

A key feature of the V-GVR is the fully electronic control system using servo motors for smooth and consistent web tension control throughout the full speed range of corrugator operation.

Preheaters mod. PRR – PRDR – PRTR

PRR – PRDR – PRTR – Is a modular unit, consisting of two sturdy side frames and one preheating drum with a diameter of 900 mm or 1100 mm. Two fixed idler rolls and one movable double wrap roll allow a smooth and easy paper threading, as requested by production.
The single station unit (mod. PRR) is used to heat single facer liners, while the two-station (mod. PRDR) and the three-station version (mod. PRTR) are used to heat the liner at the double backer.
The wrap is temperature controlled and the wrap arm is motorized by a Servo-motor and drive.

Single Facer – V-S90

Depending on the specific production needs of each customer, a valid alternative to the new VSF is represented by the new V-Super90 single facer. V-S90 is one of the best selling single facers in the world. It has proven over the years its unique ability to adapt to evolving production needs and market trends, in relation to orders, papers, and flute changes. This operator friendly machine has a technical simplicity to ensure top reliability and minimize maintenance requirements.

Single Facer mod. Vantage SF

The VSF is designed with technical characteristics and performance criteria that represent an important evolution in single facer technology. VSF allows to process very light papers and is suitable both for standard and special applications. Its main features are: absence of critical speeds, variable corrugating pressure, special non-metallic pressure roll, reduced maintenance costs, flute change in 5 minutes.

Glue Unit mod. V-IM

The innovative technical features and performances of the recently engineered Vantage IM glue machine are matched to the ever growing requirements related to the use of special papers and various glue types. With Vantage IM, the bonding process utilizes an exact amount of adhesive consistent with the board grade being produced. This glue unit adapts and provides the optimal glue application for optimum bonding, flatter board and consistent high board quality.

Double Backer mod. VANTAGE DF

Double Backer VANTAGE DF is equipped with VaryPress, the unique heat transfer system that allows variable pressure across the machine, providing a consistent heat transfer, efficient temperature control and optimum bonding. It is possible to instantly vary and adjust the temperature profile by optimizing heat transfer in the various working zones both across machine and in the machine direction. Constant product quality at the highest working speeds is assured , as well as the ability to control board flatness.

Rotary Shear mod. V-HRS90

The Rotary Shear mod. V-HRS90 includes a helical blade cutting system, brushless motors and innovative technology to drive the knife cylinders. The cuts are made in full synchronization with the speed of the board. The high efficiency of the V-HRS 90 rotary shear reduces the amount of scrap and helps to maintain the high performance level of the entire corrugator line.

Slitter Scorer mod. V-PowerSet

Slitter Scorer V-PowerSet can be configured as a double–module robotic machine, or as a double machine with one or two auxiliary scorere modules, independently driven. The various V-Powerset configurations available satisfy even the most complex requirements related to the number of outs, score to score distances, and profiles. They also offer the maximum flexibility in utilizing the tools choosen for the machine. It can be joined to the Gapless technology to perform gapless order changes at full line speed.

Cutoff mod. V-TREL

The quality dynamic performance of Cutoff V-TREL is due to its highly advanced control technology.
