No one could have seen it coming. On an early morning in January, a fire ripped through a manufacturing plant in the outskirts of London, destroying the industrial space and along with it 7 converting machines and production lines. A blaze so large it could be seen for miles, it took fifteen fire engines and 97 firefighters to extinguish the flames. A leading manufacturer of canister wipes, the company knew they must respond swiftly and with resolve in order to keep the business going. Their immediate move to an old factory space, coupled with great partnerships to facilitate new warehouse space and custom automation machinery allowed them to barely skip a beat.
ELSNER has been designing and building automated equipment for the Filtration market for over 20 years, beginning with the development of an automated method for folding element leaves for spiral wound filters. Today we realize the growing filtration market has a great need to adopt automated solutions in order to save time and labor while improving consistency and quality control.
ELSNER Deepens Commitment to Designing and Building Machinery for Filtration Industry
ELSNER has announced the purchase of the design and IP rights to SCM Slitter Inc.’s Element Trim Saw. The trim saw is designed to quickly and efficiently trim the ends of industrial liquid filtration elements, such as spiral wound reverse osmosis filters.
The acquisition is a logical ‘next step’ for ELSNER who has been building automated folding, gluing and rolling machinery for the filtration industry for nearly 20 years. With that experience, ELSNER has been looking to take a larger role in the filtration industry as a part of their continued growth and strategic planning.
