Porcari (LU) – Italy, June 1, 2023 – Sinaatec, a new major player in the Algerian nonwoven industry, relied on A.Celli EWIND® and R-WAY® end-of-line solutions for its two new Reifenhauser Reicofil Meltblown and Composite Bico RF5 lines.

The two 3.20 m wide lines, installed in Sinaatec’s Algiers plant, aim to create new prospects for the medical and hygiene sectors in the North and Central African markets.

The A.Celli scope of supply for the RF5 Composite Bico line includes:

  • E-WIND® AC ZERO master roll winder
  • Fully automatic COMBI master roll handling system
  • Two E-WIND® SUPER SONIC, both equipped with the SLITTOMATIC automatic knives positioning and the COREMATIC system for automatic shaft handling and core cutting
  • A fully automatic R-WAY® SLITTOPACK packaging system

The line start up is scheduled for the last quarter of 2023.

The meltblown line, which includes an A.Celli E-WIND® STREAM IN-LINE slitting winder, is already operational since October 2022.

“It was a pleasure to share these pleasant moments with the A. Celli staff and our friends from Reicofil. This synergy can only be beneficial for our big project!” said Mr. Mohamed Lamine Boucelouche, Sinaatec CEO, after the recent visit to our headquarters to inspect the winding, slitting and packaging equipment before the delivery.
