WipeMeWorld, Elsner and Shemesh Automation Join Forces to Build a Complete Turn-Key Solution Manufacturing WipeMe Flushable Moist Toilet Paper on a ROLL

Posted by Elsner Team

 This is a completely new and innovative development that allows converters and globally known brands access to a new innovative market for moist toilet paper on a roll. The joint turn-key solution provides best-in-class, fast and economic automatic machines to manufacture WipeMe patented flushable wet wipes on a roll.

The partnership, between these three world-renowned companies, has seen the creation of a solution that is intended to enhance the nonwoven industry and open all new categories in that space. It will change the way consumers view traditional toilet paper and wet wipes. WipeMe is a new product which is fully recyclable, eco-friendly and dramatically increases consumer hygiene while providing unique, state of the art, flushable moist toilet paper on a roll. WipeMe doesn’t require changing any of the consumer landscape and it fits any traditional toilet paper holder.

Rethink what a toilet paper can do! WipeMe is the best toilet paper to maintain your hygiene time after time.


The award-winning WipeMeWorld Company is delighted to present their unique flushable wet wipes toilet paper product, created after 4 years of research and hard work. After development was fully complete, the company partnered with two machine designers who specialized in building complete, automatic machines as turn-key solutions: Shemesh Automation Wet Wipes, specialists in automated packaging solutions, and Elsner Engineering Works, Inc, specializing in rewinding and perforating.

Thanks to their joint efforts, these three companies are delighted to present a turn-key solution that is completely new to the market and is fully patented. WipeMe flushable Moist Toilet Paper is much more hygienic, disposable and accessible than traditional toilet paper. It is suitable for all age groups and genders and is very user-friendly. No existing habits or behavior need to be changed, as it feels and looks just like traditional toilet paper.

As the leader in rolled nonwoven wipes converting, Elsner’s rewinding and perforating experience is key to producing a high quality roll. Already familiar with the challenges of handing a wide range of nonwoven materials, Elsner were perfect partners for this innovative project. Based on their existing fully automatic ENR-1000 rewinder, Elsner added core feed capability to the design for a dedicated machine model for the WipeMe project. Building on years of experience working with Shemesh Automation to provide full turn-key systems, the journey from rewinder to packaging is completely seamless.

TCO: What Are You Really Paying for…or Gaining From…Your Converting Equipment?

Posted by Elsner Team

Boosting productivity is something Elsner Engineering knows a little something about. Not only do we run a tight manufacturing ship in our own operation, keeping a strong focus on lean processes and efficiencies; we manufacture fully automatic converting machines that are key to our customers improving their processes. We recently worked with a company who moved to an Elsner fully automated wet wipe production line and found an up to 90% increase in production. Yes, that’s 90. So, it’s no surprise they have begun the process to purchase another line.  Have you considered integrating automation to boost your productivity?

Top Line Efficiencies, Bottom Line Gains
We know that purchasing a production line, or even one piece of machinery, is a major capital expense for most companies, and many people look at the cost of the machine solely as the bottom line price. However, a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach is far more comprehensive approach to procuring machinery by taking into consideration all the facets of what makes an operation efficient and, more importantly, profitable. Saving time, labor costs, space on your floor—what are the pain points you’re experiencing that automated machinery could help you solve? When considering the boost in output and efficiencies you stand to gain by incorporating automation into your process, maybe you should ask yourself what’s the cost to your bottom line of NOT automating?
