With new products and processes being developed all the time, many machine builders have to make their core machine designs scalable and easily adaptable to give their end-user customers the production flexibility they, in turn, need to adapt processes and products to meet constantly changing consumer and market demands. This flexibility includes the control architecture. As such machine builders have to be certain that their automation supplier can deliver powerful, integrated and scalable solutions that can help them keep pace with their customer’s demands. These automation solutions also have to offer a lifespan commensurate to that of the host machine.
Based in Galten, Denmark, Dan-Web was founded in 1976 by John Moesgaard, and has since become a leading worldwide supplier of turnkey airlaid lines, standalone web forming systems, hammer mills and other airlaid-related equipment.
The company builds heavy duty, high-speed modular production lines for multiple types of finished products. These include Latex bonded airlaid (LBAL/BBAL) products, such as table cloths, napkins, wipes, wet wipes, industrial wipes, feminine hygiene products, and packaging material. Thermal-bonded airlaid (TBAL) products include the core material for baby diapers, feminine hygiene and incontinence products, meat pads and packaging material, while Hydrogen bonded airlaid or x-bonded airlaid (HBAL/XBAL) products also form the core material for baby diapers, feminine hygiene and incontinence products. Finally, multi-bonded airlaid (MBAL) products – a combination of LBAL and TBAL – are widely used for absorbent cores and different wipes, too.
