The QUANTUM corrugator is absolutely new and revolutionary!
QUANTUM excels where traditional corrugators fail, as measured by quality and waste.
Its compact dimension between 148' and 213' (45m and 65m), depending on the dry-end configuration and unique technical features, allow the Quantum to be used advantageously for the production of micro-flutes (N-F) with very light papers of 8 lbs/msf (40 gr/m2) – as well as for standard flutes (B-C-E-R & Double Wall).
Available in working widths of 51", 71" and 98" (1.3, 1.8 and 2.5 m), with different configurations to meet specific production requirements.
Quantum corrugated sheets allow for direct offset printing, highest flexo post-print quality, optimum strength with recycled papers and, the production of coated liners (for example PE, PET, clay coated, silver or gold coatings).
One of the most significant advantages offered by the Quantum system is the possibility of producing corrugated board that can be substituted for solid board with considerable paper savings.
To achieve the above results, Agnati has totally changed the design of the corrugator. In the Quantum machine, the formation of the single face web and the application of the outer liner are achieved virtually at the same time, in only one thermal cycle. Furthermore, the ideal labyrinth of the corrugating rolls and the non metallic pressure roll, produce damage-free results.
The combination of these factors and the board not being in direct contact with the hot plates creates the following advantages:
Higher board rigidity and mechanical strength
Maximum visual appearance and printing surface quality
Lower energy consumption
Easy start up of the machine
Reduced man power required
Smaller machine footprint
QUANTUM is the ideal machine for print-houses that have the need to expand production portfolios with special products and greater production capacity; sheet feeders that need to deliver high quality sheets in fine flutes; converting plants that desire to become independent from traditional sheet supply.
