Another Success in Russia! Arkhbum Voronezh chooses Celmacch and Asahi


Celmacch recently installed another Chroma Print Flexo Printing machine at the Arkhbum Group, one of the largest and most innovative corrugated converting plant in Russia.

After the recent installation in Ilim, Celmacch confirms another successful installation which took place in Voronezh, one of the most modern sites in Russia. The line is a Chroma Evo with maximum format 2100X1300 mm, which feeds an Asahi flatbed die-cutter in line.

Chroma EVO is capable of reaching speeds of 10,000 sheets per hr.

Arkhbum JSC, part of the Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill JSC Group, produces 1 billion sqm of product per year. By 2020, Arkhbum’s Voronezh plant aims to produce 188 million sqm of finished product.

The factory is modern with the highest degree of automation in every respect: all internal movement runs automatically thanks to the latest generation of materials handling. The corrugator, as well as the converting machinery, was chosen to ensure the highest level of productivity and automation.

Equipped with the most advanced technology, such as carbon chambered doctor blade system, the new Chroma Print offers high performance, both in terms of quality and operation. Printing precision is ensured by direct motor technology thanks to an independent motor on each shaft.

Connection to the Asahi die-cutter takes place via telescopic vacuum transfer, specifically designed to work together with the Asahi AP-2100 L lap feeder, the top-of-the-range Asahi model which provides a maximum speed of 7,000 sheets per hr. The market requires higher quality printed images as product packaging and Celmacch is proud to be the preferred supplier of some of the most innovative players of the market.
