BW Papersystems has announced the acquisition of the Questec technology from Ph-Questec, based in Germany.
Adding this specialised rotary cross cutting technology – which serves the printing industry, and has special lightweight paper and film applications – will perfectly complement BW Papersystems’ already robust sheeting and paper converting product and technology offerings.
The talented team members associated with the Questec technology will find a new home as part of BW Papersystems’ operations in Germany, contributing and sharing their valuable knowledge with the global team.
‘We are excited about integrating the Questec technology into our sheeting product line,’ said Patrick Walczak, BW Papersystems senior vice president sales, White and Blue Paper. ‘Not only does it provide opportunities to enhance our offerings for in line reel fed printing, but it also helps us serve new markets, such as plastic film cutting, cut to register applications for labels and other single web specialty products.’
The Questec technology successfully handles and cuts very thin web based paper and film grades. For the in line printing industry, as well as the specialised plastic film industry, both the standalone and integrated Questec cross cutting and contact free sheet transport solutions provide precise, versatile production options.
‘Our BW Papersystems product portfolio continues to get broader and more diverse,’ said Neal McConnellogue, president of BW Papersystems. ‘But, I am even more grateful for the addition of the knowledge, talent and legacy of our new Questec team members.’
