A diverse and expanding industry
The Tissue market consists in paper products in various forms, such as rolls and parallelepipedal (folded) products, manufactured using diverse techniques depending on their use: single-ply and smooth or embossed bonded multi-ply products with different purposes. The products manufactured using these materials are used in very diverse settings, such as the biomedical, cosmetics and industrial sectors. They range from hospital paper rolls to rolls for corporate cleaning, as well as toilet paper, interfolded hand towels, napkins, paper tissues and wipes. According to the forecasts, in the South American area alone, the market will grow to a value of 66 billion dollars by 2028, compared to 45 billion in 2020, with a compound growth rate of 4.6% for the 2021 - 2028 period.*

ECO WRAP: the perfect solution for the LATAM market
The ideal solution for the LATAM market is ECO WRAP, a machine with an excellent performance to priceratio, intended primarily for small and medium-sized enterprises that intend to automate the end-of-the-line with a high-tech solution. At the same time, however, ECO WRAP satisfies the needs of multinationals with medium-/low-speed automated lines. It is a machine for wrapping “AFH” rolls or folded products using plastic film and is able to use a wide range of packaging materials. The machine creates perfectly sealed bags, allowing a broad series of product configurations. This type of packaging is especially well-suited to pre-packaged paper rolls for industrial use and individually packed folded products. The packaging process does not generate any wrapping material scraps or rejects, which cuts out disposal costs and allows a significant saving of wrapping material.
Efficiency behind the name
The ECO WRAP does not merely save packaging material, it also allows energy saving: the flow wrapper creates high quality bags that are tight-fitting and do not necessarily require the use of a shrink tunnel. Lastly, the one-piece design allows fast commissioning of the machine, which can be very quickly installed. It can also be rapidly configured for start-up. This avoids prolonged line stoppages and improves production efficiency.

When it comes to sustainability, Microline is committed to playing a frontline role. This is why we manufacture machines that do not produce trimmings, resulting in material savings of between 20% and 30% compared to our competitors and optimised energy consumption.
AL80 and FAST WRAP1250 spearhead Microline’s production range for paper roll packaging. The machines offer a continuous operating cycle, which ensures higher performance, lower energy consumption and better efficiency for optimum management of different product sizes.
The complete shutdown of businesses in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has gradually led to raw material shortages and rising energy costs. So, in these unprecedented times, companies desperately need sustainable solutions capable of saving available resources, whilst avoiding unnecessary wastage. Microline’s new AFH roll bundler is the ideal solution
With its firm commitment to sustainability, Microline manufactures machinery that affords significant waste reduction and optimised energy consumption. Microline also believes strongly in the use of new environmentally-sustainable materials. For this reason, it has partnered with Slovenian company Di Mucci d.o.o.
Microline is a hi-tech business capable of adapting its solutions to suit every single customer’s needs. Indeed, the company’s latest offerings are the result of careful analysis that has considered both market requirements and end-consumer needs. An example is the Fast Wrap 1250.
Developed to meet Tissue industry requirements, ECO WRAP 1050 is one of the latest additions to the Microline range of versatile, user-friendly bundlers. ECO Wrap is a bundler capable of using various types of plastic film as the wrapping material, thus avoiding wastage of materials and energy.
