Product portfolio Main Highlights


1. In-line A-Z Canister Wipes Turnkey Packaging Lines:
These TKS systems start at 60ppm, and go up to 200ppm for canisters, or up to 40ppm for buckets. They feature the company’s flagship wipes canister loader, the SAS series. Officially rolled out in 2013 with nearly 50 units already installed in the US and elsewhere, the SAS is the only truly empirically proven vertical nonwovens rolls stuffer in the world to date.

2. An all-in-one Monoblock design, the XPANDER and XPANDER PLUS:
These smart designs boast the only technology in the world to date suitable for a smaller footprint for complete 30-35ppm round wipes packaging in canisters. The XPANDER may serve both entry-level players and high-volume wet wipes makers seeking manufacturing diversification and frequent changeovers.

3. NEW!! – MOPPIT Lines:
A-Z fully automated turnkey system packaging lines for dry or wet floor mopping cloths in rigid containers.


The CITADEL is the world’s first all-in-one downstream packaging Monoblock machine for round wipes in flexible ready-made  Doypacks. With the CITADEL, stand-up pouches or ready-made bags are stacked in a magazine and automatically fed into a rotary index table where they are opened, loaded with wipes, liquid filled, sealed and discharged. The CITADEL comes in both “R” or “J” models for Refill/consumer or Jumbo wipes respectively
