By selecting the right options from its catalogue, FUTURA can match any requirement based on speed, product formula or even operation habits or constraints. It can be configured with a wide range of lanes, from 12 up to 100, and with pinch cutting (up to max 24/25 lanes) or roto orbital saw.
FUTURA can work with precut rolls or semi-jumbo, automatic splice, zero speed splices.
It can have integrated CIP, multiple folds. You can add vision quality systems, multiple wetting stations, specific features to handle delicate materials like flushable paper based nonwovens.
Production speed goes up to 720 cuts/minute (for low lanes number) with any type of substrate, even the most delicate paper-based flushables.

The totally configurable wetting system allows:
one or more sanitary pumps with dedicated flowmeter, for perfect lotion dispensing on each wipe
