PHILLIPS, WI | DICAPA, a board and fine paper converter in North Africa, has invested in a 1450-mm TSKM sheeter from MarquipWardUnited.

DICAPA made the final decision to purchase the TSKM at ICE Europe 2013 in Munich, Germany. The sheeter will ship this month and installation will take place in August.

“DICAPA is a key player in North Africa, and we are proud to install the best cutting technology in Morocco,” says Frederic Duquenne, a MarquipWardUnited sales executive for Western Europe and Africa.

The 1450-mm maximum width dual rotary sheeter (also available in 1650 mm) is equipped with one SSLD unwind for two webs, three slitters, the Marquip synchro knife and 1,500mm pile height stacker. The TSKM will mainly sheet board, but can sheet fine paper as well.

DICAPA appreciated the flexibility of the MarquipWardUnited Sheeter and the possibility of future development.

Mechiche Alami, chairman of DICAPA, said, “MarquipWardUnited has the best knife, with the best cut quality, no dust, in-machine blade sharpening, low maintenance, and local technical support from the MarquipWardUnited United agent at Graphic Evolution.”
