Elsner Launches ERS-180 Canister Lifter – Nonwovens Industry Magazine

Elsner has announced the introduction of the Elsner Model ERS-180 “One-Eighty” Canister Stuffer to its range of wipe production converting machines.

“When we design and build our equipment, are we always thinking about what’s next?” says Jay Roth, Elsner’s Sales Manager. “We are trying to think about what we can further automate and how we can deepen relationships with our customers. Padding has long been a problem and we have worked to solve this challenge by designing a pusher that is fully integrated with our ENR Series retractor. We can now supply a complete production chain with a reduced number of suppliers, from the master roll to the wipes in canisters.

Elsner has been manufacturing world-class fully automatic perforating rewinders for the production of wipes for decades. With hundreds of machines in dozens of countries, Elsner has helped evolve the wipes industry since producing its first puncher in the 1970s. In response to Covid-19, Elsner has sold over ENR series machines than ever before and focused on providing solutions to keep production not just moving but running smoothly.

“The challenge of connecting the rewinder to the packaging equipment has been an issue for many of our customers,” said Bert Elsner II, President/CEO of Elsner. “As industry experts, we took it upon ourselves to master transition and integration. The result is the ERS-180 which provides the smoothest integration in the industry and a true turnkey solution.

The One-Eighty is built to typical Elsner standards with specifications that make production more efficient than ever. The name One-Eighty Canister Stuffer comes from the fact that the machine is designed to reach 180 canisters per minute to match the output of the Elsner ENR-G3.
