The prevailing global ecological trend is reflected in WIX-FILTRON in the manufacturing of EKO inserts that are designed in view of their efficient disposal after their useful life period. The inserts are manufactured with no metal components used. Their basic elements such as caps or cores are made of plastics. The fact that no metal components are used in EKO inserts allows us to dispose of the used up filter inserts in incineration plants without the requirement of disassembly and segregation of respective elements.
Ecological filter inserts are manufactured in WIX-FILTRON on highly efficient and modern production line.
The line was tailor designed and manufactured specially for WIX-FILTRON based on the expertise and experience of our engineering teams. It consists of 40 moulds on two carousels. Production centre is characterized with filters being transferred from one carousel to the other by 6-axis robots. The technology applied consists in melting the surface of the insert bottom with electrical radiators and next, in joining the cap with the filtering partition. All the supporting activities are carried out by the system of placing the caps on the carousel moulds. The caps are segregated, respectively oriented and placed in production centres.
Technologically advanced modern production line allows the company to manufacture 20 pieces of filter inserts per minute, which comes to 6 million pieces a year.
