Our innovation history

Rewinder-348

1972 - REWINDER 348

Rewinder 348, the first continuous automatic surface rewinder provides an alternative to mandrel winding.

Alfa-rewinder

1981 - ALFA REWINDER

Higher speeds, better winding quality, more precise glue pick-up, sheet count: the Alfa rewinder officially inaugurates true industrial scale production. Fabio Perini starts collaborating with the multinationals in the realm of tissue.

Continuous-log-saw

1991 - CONTINUOUS LOG SAW

Higher working speed of the line, better overall efficiency, less mechanical stress. It is the advent of the continuous cutting system.

Sincro

1993 - SINCRO

The Sincro transfer system marks a milestone in the history of Perini. Converting lines acquire maximum flexibility and efficiency to answer new market demands

tail-sealer-560

1993 - TAIL SEALER 560

The tail sealer 560 introduces blade-style gluing, marking a turning point in the tail sealing phase. Line speed and efficiency increase remarkably, eliminating the maintenance problems connected to the use of glue spray systems.

Reduction-of-roll-size

1995 - REDUCTION OF ROLL SIZE

Patented space-saving product format present on packaging machines. Less use of poly film and storage space required.

Deco-Embossing

1998 - DECO-EMBOSSING

The advent of this laminating and decorating system opens the doors to the decorated roll as we know it today.

cutting-unit-for-wrapper

1999 - CUTTING UNIT FOR WRAPPER

Polyethylene cutting unit with helix system allows cutting the polyethylene film during its advancement resulting in higher speed packaging on all wrapping machines.

Variable-speed-of-the-infeed-on-wrapper

1999 - VARIABLE SPEED INFEED ON WRAPPER

Variable speed of the infeed conveyor for better control of product flow. Less mechanical stress, less maintenance.

Punzoncini-Time

2001 - PUNZONCINI TIME

The punzoncini technology on the TIME rewinder definitively confirms Fabio Perini as supplier of high level technology for multinationals producing the full range of products in the consumer market at high speeds.

Automatic-adjustment-system

2001 - ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT SEALING BELTS

Automatic adjustment system of the sealing belts on wrappers during production. Homogeneous wear for longer-lasting belts.

Folders-adjustable-for-package

2002 - UNIVERSALLY ADJUSTABLE FOLDERS

Folders adjustable for package heights from a minimum of 90mm to a maximum of 305mm, present on wrappers. Fewer parts and less time required for format changes.

Packaging-lines-control

2002 - PRODUCTION/PACKAGING LINES CONTROL

A system called Controll harmonizes the entire line based on the production data coming from the converting machines. Less mechanical stress. Higher efficiencies and productivity.

Flying-Splice

2003 - FLYING SPLICE UNWINDER

The reel transfer solution with Flying Splice significantly increases the efficiency of converting lines, allowing for parent reel changes to be completed in complete safety via an automatic system without stopping the machine.

Ionizer

2003 - IONIZER

System to attach a polyethylene handle on packs during the wrapping cycle.

B-side

2004 - B SIDE

With Bside, decoration attains its maximum expression. It is now possible to decorate both the upper and lower ply with motifs and different color glues, thus conferring the possibility to have an original product with 2 different sides.

Solid-Plus

2005 - SOLID PLUS

A new toilet roll concept. The revolutionary Solid+ product is the first toilet roll with an extractable core, usable to the very last sheet. An innovative product that opens the door to a new era in the “evolution” of the toilet roll.

Higher-format-change-speed

2005 - AUTOMATIC CHANGE OF PICKER FINGER SIZE

Allows making in-depth format changes in completely automatic fashion. Higher format change speed.

Webtuck

2006 - WEBTUCK

Core pick-up without the use of glue has given rise to the Glue Free era. In addition to clear advantages for the environment, the elimination of glue to fix the tissue ply to the cardboard core also contributes to enhancing the efficiency of the converting line, reducing downtimes for maintenance and cleaning.

PPP-evolution-softop

2006 - PPP EVOLUTION-SOFTOP

The application of this particular mechanical engraving technology for embossing rolls has allowed obtaining very bulky rolls with soft hand feel.

3-layer

2006 - TRIPLE LAYER

The 3-layer system is patented and present on the machines CMW525 - A6T - CMW3000. Opening up new possibilities in packaging formats and potential bundle replacement.

Glue-free

2012 - TAIL SEALER 563

The patent relative to mechanical tail sealing together with the Webtuck patent for the elimination of glue from core pick-up confirms the new era of Glue Free.

4D-embossing

2011 - 4D

The 4D chemical engraving technology makes it possible to best preserve the customizable features of the embossed product, drastically reducing the degradation of the base sheet due to embossing.

Rotating-tuck

2012 - ROTATING TUCK

Folding system with paper unit (CMW208). Higher quality.

Launching-system

2012 - CONTINUOUS LAUNCHING SYSTEM

New roll handling software system in the launching unit. Less mechanical stress and reduced maintenance.

Constellation

2013 - CONSTELLATION

Improving the SINCRO winding technology seemed impossible until the arrival of Constellation. The possibility of winding a roll between four mobile rollers opens the doors to the softest and fluffiest products known today. A true REVOLUTION.

2013 - SEPARABLE INFEED CMW3000

Infeed separable from the CMW3000 machine body. Greater accessibility for maintenance.
