At Simac Tanning Tech 2021 Bergi exhibited two machines of significant importance in terms of productivity and sustainability: the through-feed ironing and embossing machine Superstar T 3200 and the new band buffing machine Attiva 3200.
The Superstar T 3200 is a model that derives directly from the Supervario T, a machine that was presented to the general public in January 2019 during the Tanning Tech fair, and which has been very much appreciated by customers since its debut. The Superstar T 3200 brings with it all the construction features of that model with the difference that the rollers change does not take place by means of a hoist as it is totally automatic and is carried out by means of a revolver-type rotary system. It is also possible to autonomously heat the installed rollers by equipping the machine with additional independent control units. The construction quality is guaranteed by the use of materials designed to offer durability over time while the new technical solutions adopted such as: preheating system on the insertion belt, the increased counter-pressure roller and the latest generation electronics make the Superstar T 3200 a highly productive, versatile, safe machine with the highest quality standards and printing precision. The preheating system on the belt allows both to reduce the thermal shock that the cold skin undergoes when encountering the hot operating roller and, for some items, to work the hides with a lower temperature than the operating roller. In this way, in addition to obtaining a printed article that is generally softer to the touch, the problems of cutting the finishing which are notoriously generated by thermal shock are avoided. Finally, the increased diameter of the counter-pressure roller allows, thanks to the printing area enlarged by 35% more than the models currently on the market, to significantly increase the overall productivity of the machine.
The buffing machine Attiva 3200 completes the range of through-feed buffing machines in Bergi’s bouquet. Following the success of the 1800 and 2200 versions of the Attiva launched in the year 2019/2020 and following the requests, received from various parts, of a model suitable to process whole skins, here we are with the model 3200 which we are presenting this year to our loyal customers. This model is also characterised by work precision and state-of-the-art technical construction quality. Among the main technical features, in addition to the unquestionably solid structure since all Bergi buffing machines are equipped with their own base, we include the large opening of both the upper protective casing and the leather introduction system. Thanks to this last feature, both the paper change and the rubber roller replacement as well as cleaning and maintenance are particularly easy and fast, all to the advantage of productivity. Like all the latest generation models produced by Bergi, the Active 3200 is also equipped with its own touch-screen display with internet connection both to facilitate any remote assistance and to upload recipes and working parameters.
