Project: Industrial platform integration “coating and converting”

Acronym PI2 (Reference Number: MNET20/ICT-3813)
Duration 01/11/2020 - 01/11/2022
Project Topic Maan and Lemu’s aim with this Manunet project is to develop a prototype system of a linerless label printing and converting station. The current equipment available on today’s market has two major limitations. The first limitation is integration of machinery. Nowadays a number of steps are needed to create a printed linerless label. These are often performed by different machines and manufacturers, each requiring their own operational parameters. This is suboptimal and creates a waste stream that could be avoided by integration. The second limitation is that the market is asking for systems that require less raw materials. Recently Maan developed several technologies to reduce raw materials. By joining forces with Lemu a unique proposition rises to develop an integrated system of otherwise independent machines. The integration from otherwise two independent manufacturers is unique and is in line with the Factories of the Future and Industry 4.0 philosophy, where more and more machinery is linked together in a smart way.
