Dalian Ruiguang Nonwoven Group’s objectives
The objective of Dalian Ruiguang Nonwoven Group Co., LTD. was to open up to the market of printed products to complete its wetlaid, spunlace and spunmelt production business.
The company was in fact looking for a printing line manufacturer that would allow them to obtain a perfectly printed hygienic product. In particular, they needed to control and manage the repeat length from the beginning to the end of the production process and dynamically control the tension of thin materials, in order to ensure perfect and constant tension throughout the entire printing process.
A.Celli, thanks to its long experience in the hygienic sector and the acquired know-how, has designed the IRIDIUM® flexographic printer to allow the customer to achieve his goals.
