New generation of dry sorting: SPRINGER and SCA continue successful partnership
With its latest major order, the Swedish SCA Group has again proved that it trusts SPRINGER’s pioneering state-of-the-art technology and innovative product solutions. The Austrian family-owned business is designing and constructing a new, innovative and high-performance dry sorting plant for SCA Bollsta.
Tailor-made automatization and digitalization solutions are implemented, such as the beltless SPRINGER-E-CUT 200 trimmer, the fully automatic SPRINGER-ED 3000 Wrapper, the SPRINGER-Robotic Labeling System (RLS), as well as the SPRINGER IOT and GO-LIVE! system, which creates a complete digital twin of the real plant and brings it to life through a real-time data connection.
“We are delighted to be continuing our successful partnership with SCA. The new dry sorting plant combines superior digital technology with user-friendliness and efficiency”, comments Timo Springer the CEO of SPRINGER Maschinenfabrik GmbH. During the contract negotiations, our Swedish distribution partner LOAB gave us excellent support and reconciled the interests of SCA and Springer. According to Gert Fischinger, head of project planning, the order was issued following a very intensive, two-year project planning process and was based on SPRINGER’s latest product innovations.
The system is the largest single installation as well as the fastest one on the market. It can handle up to 230 boards per minute and 28 handovers per minute, which means that an annual resorting capacity of more than 750000m³ boards can be achieved with no more than three people operating the system. All plant sections are pre-installed, pre-assembled and commissioned at SPRINGER’s production facility.
Completion and handover of the project is scheduled for May 2023.
