Configurable Lines: Converting

The Körber ecosystem revolutionizes the tissue market with breakthrough technologies

12.05.2022 | Our Tissue Team | 3 min read Topics |

The equipment a tissue manufacturer chooses largely dictates production performance and end product quality. Running machines that are incompatible, inefficient, or technologically obsolete can interfere with overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), competitive advantage, and the bottom line.

Körber Business Area Tissue has long been the global supplier of the most trusted equipment brands in the tissue industry. Longevity of Körber machines in the field speaks to a heritage of reliability. A revolutionary market approach to technological integration and value chain streamlining signals a future of innovation that has moved Körber from equipment provider to full strategic partner.

At the center of the transition is the Körber ecosystem, which consolidates technologies developed by the Körber Group and highly qualified external partners into a single solution. All technologies involved in tissue converting environments — from raw paper to finished products and distribution logistics — are accounted for and connected within the Körber ecosystem, making it a powerful “one-stop shop” for tissue manufacturers.

Simplifying tissue converting and packaging practices

An overarching goal of the Körber ecosystem is simplification. All the machines making up the production line, from parent reel unwinding to palletization, including those developed by companies external to the Körber Group, are connected to each other and controlled through Sam Flow — dedicated software that continually monitors the process and auto-regulates the main production parameters to deliver maximum efficiency for the desired finished product characteristics.

In addition to maximizing OEE, the Körber ecosystem’s single contact point offers customers:

  • The best technology for specific market requirements
  • Full support in optimizing line layout and minimizing industrial footprint
  • Improved management of production time and costs
