The Colombier Group Service division operates 10 mobile reel saws across Europe and has a range of complementary mobile support services, reel repacking, core reduction etc. The group also has sheeting and rewinding facilities in the UK, rewinders in Western- and Northern-Europe, and mobile re packaging units serving many of the Atlantic ports Colombier services are divided to On-site and Off-site Services.
The On-site Services, offered at the operative units in The Netherlands, Finland, and UK consist of rewinding and reSizing. Resizing is carried out also at own the premises in Germany, Spain and Belgium.
The most common reasons for rewinding are:
- Change of diameter
- Change of core
- Production of multiple webs (down to reel width 5cm reels)
- Replacing a damaged or crushed core
- Quality control; removing unmade joins etc.
The Jagenberg and Valmet rewinders are capable of handling a great variety of paper and board grades. The processed goods are finished off with integrated packing lines that deliver mill standard packing with the possibility of customizing labels and bar coding.
Three sheet cutters are operated in UK with differing specifications allowing a wide range of converting parameters in woodfree coated/uncoated, LWC, board and specialty qualities.
The off-site Services comprise of activities carried out at customer’s own premises, or any other third party location. These external – also know as Mobile – Services are reel resizing, reel splitting, and reel repacking services. There is also a supplementary core insert program for reducing the size of the inner cores of reels.
The off site services are available throughout Europe.
These high end sawing and reSizing techniques have made Colombier the European leader in modern conversion.
