Curt G. Joa, a custom-engineering design and machine-building company, has announced a new vacuum roll technology, Infinity Roll, which uses a patented design and ensures complete control of nonwoven materials throughout the entire production process. Regardless of material shape or size, materials remain in control without deviation, increasing production efficiencies, material savings and product quality.

The company announced the availability of the new product at this week’s IDEA19 trade show in Miami, FL, which is closing its doors today. The new Infinity Roll has been nominated for the IDEA Achievement Award. “The focus of our inventions is always solving customers’ production challenges but of course we are delighted with the industry recognition. It is quite an honour for us to be included among the other nominees,” commented Paula Inda, Corporate Director of Global Marketing.

According to the company, the Infinity Roll offers three key benefits to its customers: maximum product control throughout the entire process, superior flexibility allowing transfer of previously difficult-to-control materials and product shapes with ease, and maximum production efficiency.

“The trend to lower [gram per square metre] material will accelerate, and those materials can become difficult to control at high production speeds. Furthermore, newer materials that incorporate sensory features, such as softness for example, may result in slippage during the converting process,” explained Kevin Zeinemann, Corporate Director of Engineering.

“The patented Infinity Roll corrects the process deviations that may otherwise result, reducing machine downtime and product quality defects.”

Since 1932, Curt G. Joa has been a leader in engineering and building specialty machines for the disposable market. The company’s customers utilise its technology to convert nonwovens, plastics, paper, films, tape and elastics to produce products that include baby diapers, feminine sanitary napkins, and adult incontinence products.
