The feeding of the leather can be done with automatic transport. The width of the machine can be customized according to the customer’s needs. New: The addition […]

WINTECH: trend in sole molding machinery

Energy conservation today is the most current issue being felt by companies. Work is constantly being done to reduce electricity consumption in all facilities. Difficulty in sourcing electronic components and more are driving manufacturers to have to continually reengineer machines to maintain the quality levels characteristic of leading companies but still be able to meet […]

SATURN: Brushing machine with advanced vacuum system

The filtering and collection system is located inside the machine with an obvious reduction in total footprint. Very easy maintenance with no bag to disassemble but with collection basket. HEPA filter provides an advanced level of dust filtering. Proximity sensor allows the machine to be turned off when the operator is not in front of […]

SAGITTA: automatic drilling machine through dies

Three-axis motion: the third axis allows rotation of the arm on which the die is mounted for more elaborate designs and for reaching difficult corners. High productivity: up to 900 strokes per minute with a clean perforation that leaves no material to remove and no damage to the material. The machine comes with a set […]

INESCOP: 3D for virtual shoe prototypes

3D technology today is a powerful tool to support the interaction between design and sample making and for marketing and sales processes for reducing the number of samples to be produced. 3D requires powerful and fast tools for modeling, but to obtain images that are indistinguishable from the real ones, it is necessary to introduce […]

PL PROJECT: Innovative edge dyeing system

Machine that consumes so little electricity that it can be powered by a powerbank recharged at night when energy is cheaper. Wireless magnetic motor. The head can be assembled and disassembled very easily and quickly to do color changes and to clean the components that come in contact with the color. Once closed with the […]

MAIN GROUP: robotic line for sole preparation

Robot to support the automation of gluing the sole. The vision system recognizes the exact position of the sole while the robot following the programmed path, sprays the glue preparing the sole for bonding with the upper. The operation takes place inside a closed chamber equipped with suction to prevent glue dispersion into the environment.

MACAP: Press for soles with parts that wrap around the upper

New pressing system for cemented soles with parts that go up to cover the upper: toe caps, rear spoilers, or side carry-overs. The rubber sock adapts to the shape of the shoe thanks to a compressed air system. Compared with systems available on the market, the smaller size of the sock requires less air supply […]

GUSBI: Innovation trends in PU printing

PU machine manufacturers are working in several directions to increasingly improve molding processes for a compound that offers so many advantages over traditional thermoplastics. One trend is the use of polyurethanes with increasingly lower densities to reduce component weight and gain share in applications that require lighter soles. Efforts are being made to achieve maximum […]
