It's important for paper mill owners to assess a paper converting machine before purchasing, and here are the top five questions you should consider.
1. First of all, you need to check the complexity and functions of the paper machine. Is it easy to use? How many people will it take to operate the machine? Does it do all the functions you need it to?
2. Secondly, check the size of raw materials (machine weight is a useful index) and the supplier of major components. Are they well-known and reliable suppliers? Will the machine fit into your factory space?
3. Thirdly, ask about what paper converting technology the company uses and the treatment process for their key parts.
Paper converting machines are usually classified into fully automatic and semi automatic machines according to two functions.
1: PLC Controller
If a paper machine has a PLC controller, then it is a fully automatic paper machine. Otherwise, it is called a semi automatic paper machine. These two types of machines differ from each other significantly in their shape, complexity and price.
2: Paper Core Adding Function
If a paper machine can add paper cores automatically, it is considered to be a fully automatic paper machine. If not, it will be a semi automatic machine.
