More about Manufacturing
Spicers Converting is a specialist division of our business, located on our Auckland site in Highbrook.
For roll label and flexo qualities, Spicers Converting rewind and slitting facilities enable us to offer a service where we can slit down to a minimum of 60mm to match your specification and deliver it direct.
Since its founding in 1996 the philosophy of Spicers Converting to work that little bit harder for customers, has helped the company to grow and adapt. Supplying both standard and bespoke sizes to web and sheet printers, our customers’ requirements range from the traditional – such as publishing (books and magazines), envelope converters and roll labels – to specialist conversion.
We can convert many non-paper products including synthetics, self-adhesive, plastics and specialty packaging stocks that often require a more customised approach. We are always happy to talk through the options that we think will best suit your requirements.
New to the Spicers manufacturing capability is the Bimec’ slitter-rewinder. The Bimec Slitter Rewinder is a heavy duty, duplex slitter winder that was designed with the self adhesive converter in mind. This machine is also designed for use on plastic and film, as well as being very proficient at consumer type rolls. The machine offers quick size changes and flexibility in product mixture.
Current customer contracts include an industrial packaging product that we rewind to rolls which are 76mm wide and 1270mm O/D (tall and narrow). These are then spiral wound at the customers facility to produce the internal core for tissue rolls. Our team had to develop a unique production strategy in order to get this job to run and adaptations were made to the shafts for a successful run.
Another is a 41gsm baking paper that has additional properties to allow for crimping and forming. With careful handling and packaging this slippery product is able to be successfully converted. The stock that we convert ends up being die cut and then formed for the baking industry.
Our fork hoists and clamp trucks provide flexibility, handling reels on pallets or reels that are freestanding on their ends. Spicers’ extensive fleet operation enables us to deliver to you or direct to your customer.
