Shemesh at INDEX 2023


Shemesh Automation, global manufacturer of high-end packaging solutions, will be promoting its most comprehensive range of wet wipes packaging lines to date at Index (Stand 2373), the nonwovens industry’s showpiece exhibition taking place at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland from 18-21 April 2023.

Whether it’s round wipes packed in canisters, buckets or flexible jumbo and refill bags, Shemesh’s range boasts innovation-packed solutions for the complete packaging process.

Headlining the list of Shemesh’s latest innovations will be their brand-new ‘BuckIt TKS25’ a Complete A-Z Packaging line for Round Wipes in Buckets.

The ‘BuckIt TKS25’ line offers completely automated feeding for both buckets and bucket lids with separate continuous denesting machines that each feature a servo-driven interchangeable vertical carousel cartridge for continuous denesting – reducing downtime!

In another first for the nonwoven wipes market, the line also includes Shemesh’s innovative SAS-J Vertical Wipes Buckets Stuffer. Building on the global success of Shemesh’s SAS Canister Stuffer series, the SAS-J utilizes the same tried and tested technology to accurately stuff round nonwoven rolls into buckets before the wetting phase. The vertical stuffing methodology engineered by Shemesh allows for a smaller machine footprint whilst increasing speed and accuracy.

Packing  up to 25 buckets per minute, the ‘BuckIt TKS25’ also includes the FGW-J buckets liquid filling and dosing machine. The FGW-J utilizes Shemesh-designed, height-adjustable wide nozzles for completely homogenous wetting of nonwoven rolls.

‘BuckIt TKS25’ is complimented by a buckets lids fastener and the CAROLUS Bucket Labelling machine – the first to be developed specifically for buckets. It includes a proprietary precision orientation system which ensures that the label is placed in exactly the same position on each and every bucket. It’s ideal for multiple applications, not just nonwovens.

The line is completed by a host of end-of-line options including the Relentless-J case packer and Apollon Palletizer.

FusePack compatibility added to TKS Canister Wipes Packaging Lines

Underlining Shemesh’s commitment to sustainability their flagship TKS series, complete high speed Packaging Lines for wet wipes in canisters, is now compatible with Jabil’s Eco-friendly FusePack product.

Offering complete turnkey packaging from canister unscrambling to wipes loading, liquid filling, sealing, capping, labelling, case-packing and palletizing at speeds of up to 200ppm, the Shemesh TKS lines offer wipes makers a unique, proven one-stop-shop advantage, with all elements of the packaging process engineered by one experienced manufacturer.

FusePack’s stackable, lightweight yet strong packages that reduce carbon footprint and plastic content, are a perfect match for the economical, utilities-saving Shemesh TKS lines.

CITADEL first-to-market Jumbo and Consumer wipes baggers

Index visitors will also get a taste of the ground-breaking CITADEL range for the complete packaging of wipes in flexible packs. The 25ppm R model Monoblock bagger leads the way for round refill and consumer wipes, while CITADEL-J automatically stuffs jumbo-sized nonwoven rolls into premade bags. It then accurately fills them with liquid (typically three to four litres) while providing constant support beneath the heavy bag, seals the bags and then ejects the finished product at speeds of up to 15 packs per minute. During the show, Shemesh will unveil its newest Citadel-J model called Citadel-A, which will be able to pack both Jumbo wipes of typically 600ct wipes and above, as well as consumer/refill wipes of typically up to 300ct wipes – all with the very same machine.

Shai Shemesh, President of Shemesh Automation, said: “One of the most significant competitive advantages we offer our customers is the ability to obtain machinery that covers the entire packaging process, made by one experienced manufacturer. With the years of innovation we have poured into our brand new turnkey buckets line, canister lines and first-to-market CITADEL series, manufacturers from all subsets of the wet wipes sector now have a really compelling case for choosing Shemesh. We are really looking forward to demonstrating this to visitors at INDEX.”
