MAXFLOW belt filter as central system at splitting and skiving machine manufacturer

The industrial processing of leather is a tough business, requiring alignment of frequent model changes and increasingly shorter production times with quality and profitability. Maximum precision and efficiency of processing methods are prerequisites to succeed on the market. The requirements on process reliability and performance of the machines used for this are correspondingly high.

With its’ splitting and skiving machines, Fortuna Spezialmaschinen GmbH, located in Weil der Stadt near Stuttgart, is among the leading manufacturers of leather processing systems. Due to their high quality and precision, the systems are also used in a number of other areas, such as medical science, layer analysis or in the food and printing industries. Fortuna ensures the necessary flexibility with a high level of vertical integration of the continuously developed product families. To further strengthen this leading position, the company constantly optimises its products and processes. The latest example for this is the commissioning of a new central system for cooling lubricant filtration. The choice fell on a Maxflow belt filter from GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG. The result of the conversion is defined by significantly increased filtrate purity and considerable savings in the consumption of water, cooling lubricants and energy.
