04/04/2019 | Claudio Muñoz

The 26th annual China International Disposable Paper Expo (CIDPEX) is Asia’s largest gathering of tissue production experts in the world. Running April 17-19 at the Wuhan International Convention & Exhibition Center (Wuhan, Hubei, China), CIDPEX 2019 will bring together more than 700 companies and 30,000 visitors to share industry insights and trends, along with showcasing equipment innovations designed to make converting disposable tissue paper products more efficient and progressive in Asian markets.

A Preview of Fabio Perini Booth

Known for bringing future-focused technologies into the tissue converting space, Fabio Perini will once again be a featured CIDPEX equipment innovator.

To address the consistent 15% annual growth in China’s facial tissue market, Fabio Perini CIDPEX Booth B3K21 will showcase solutions from MTC, a developer, manufacturer, and provider of interfolder/multifolder/napkin tissue converting equipment acquired by parent company Körber AG in 2017.

Specifically, the high-speed XFIT Automatic Interfolder will be on display in the booth and running three times daily over the course of CIDPEX 2019. Designed in Italy and produced in Shanghai, this machine uses proven vacuum folding technology to enable top-level production of facial tissue products at impressive speeds:

  • Max workable paper width: 2800 mm
  • Maximum reel diameter: 2500 mm
  • Transfer cycles max: 15 logs/min
  • Max operating speed: 150 mt/min

In addition to the XFIT, the XFW120 Facial Tissue Wrapper (up to 100 packs/minute) and the XFB35 Facial Tissue Bundler (up to 30 bags/minute) will be on display to demonstrate full line capabilities.

Digital Tissue™ at CIDPEX Conference

Part of the lead-up to the CIDPEX 2019 exhibition is the CIDPEX conference, scheduled for April 15-16, 2019, at the International Conference Center, Wuhan Intercontinental Hotel. This conference provides an opportunity for analysis of the hottest topics in the tissue industry, and dialogue about practical solutions.

On April 16, 2019, Fabio Perini Sales Manager Jason Wang will present insights about Industry 4.0 and the resulting emergence of smart factories in the tissue industry.

He’ll speak about how Fabio Perini’s Digital Tissue™ platform of services and technical solutions helps tissue converters remain ahead of the technology curve — and the competition — by:

  • Interfacing all of the machines on a line
  • Leveraging upstream and downstream data to produce integrated Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) for entire plants and, eventually, production chains
  • Decreasing operating costs and increasing revenues

CIDPEX 2019 is the hallmark event for discovering tissue converting solutions that will help you serve prominent global markets, including those developing throughout Asia.
