Research, innovation, technology and sustainability CPS Company has always been at the forefront in the creation of high-performance packaging systems, to offer customers functional and quality solutions.
WEPA is an important international company with 13 offices in Europe, 4,000 employees and a turnover of 1.3 billion euros. For 75 years, the company has been producing paper products for personal care and homecare, distributed through modern distribution channels, discount stores and traditional stores.
WEPA Italia has recently commissioned CPS Company to build a machine for packaging its products: let’s find out, through the words of Mirco Sebastiani from the WEPA Italia technical office, what the project consists of and how the partnership with CPS Company went.
What are the benefits expected from the installation of the new CPS Company machine?
When we contacted CPS Company we were looking for a high performance, fast yet reliable and versatile napkin wrapping machine.
For this reason, together with the CPS Company technicians, we opted for a model of the CPS 800 series, the CPS 806.
It is to all intents and purposes a high-level packaging machine which has allowed us to simplify and optimize the lay-out of the existing line and, at the same time, to have a final product of excellent quality, also from an aesthetic point of view.
There are no other packaging machines on the market with the same production speed, capable of maintaining high quality levels in the finished product.
In addition, we wanted to adopt a machine that was intuitive and simple for operators to use, a feature that we actually found in the CPS806.
Last but not least: the great versatility of this packaging machine allows us to process several types of paper at the same time, even with different thicknesses.
What needs and goals brought you to CPS Company?
The main need was to have a high-performance packaging machine that maximized production per minute and guaranteed a quality final product. The project presented by CPS Company, based on “Revolving Technology“, convinced us and we married it right away. Currently, the machine is tested and in operation, and we can say that we are very happy and satisfied with the choice.
What was it like working with the company team?
All the sales and technical staff supported us right away to satisfy all our requests, making themselves available to WEPA and its technicians.
Even after the start-up of the line, the CPS Company team has provided us with availability, support and continuous collaboration.
