ELSNER has been building automated folding, gluing and rolling machinery for the spiral wound filter industry for nearly 20 years and are positioned as a world leader in automating processes related to manufacturing spiral wound filter elements.

“Labor pressures are nothing new, but COVID-19 has made labor-related issues even more challenging,” said Jay Roth, ELSNER’s Director of Sales. “With a lack of options and smaller staffing, continuity to maintain throughput has been difficult for many filter manufacturers. This is where automation can make all the difference.  We are looking forward to sharing our solutions with those in attendance at this year's Membrane Technology Forum to help them boost efficiencies, save labor and improve quality.”

Automation offers the options needed to manage workflows even during a situation such as the coronavirus crisis. That is why despite budget shortfalls and declining productivity, many manufacturers are leaving room in the budget for investments in Automated Solutions as a long-term strategy for stability.

Coming off of record sales in the rolled wipes market during the pandemic, ELSNER has identified filtration as one of several key initiatives ELSNER is undertaking to maintain their current growth trajectory.  

ELSNER will be promoting a full line of filtration machinery at Membrane Technology Forum:

Automatic Membrane Folding: The EMF-42 automatically converts membrane and plastic mesh into folded “leaves” for spiral wound elements.

EMF Isolated Machine 1Filter Assembly and Rolling:  The APB-42 provides automatic pack building. The machine is designed to bring together filter components to produce spiral wound filter elements.

Filter Rolling, Taping & Gluing: The SFR-42 Automates tasks such as glue delivery & outer wrap tape application associated with the manufacture of spiral wound membrane filter elements.  Our Element Rolling Table is a semi-automatic solution to filter rolling and taping.

Filter Element Finishing: The Element Trim Saw is designed to finish the edges of industrial liquid filtration elements such as those made on the ELSNER EMF-42/APB-42 Element Production Line.
