Romano di Inverigo, Italy - Saip Equipment is installing its third continuous production line for polyurethane insulating panels at one of its most important customers in Russia. The line, part of Saip's Contitech range, includes a series of synchronised machines and equipment for the continuous production process.
"The insulation market is expanding in Russia, and the demand for qualified construction solutions - such as panels - is increasing to satisfy the need of energy conservation and optimisation through thermal insulation of industrial, commercial, recreational and domestic buildings," commented Luigi Procopio, commercial director, Saip, in a 27 Sept news release.
Procopio said that competition in Russia is tough, and that the Italian company is proud to have been selected for its "state-of-the-art" technology.
Saip also said in a separate news release that it is finalising the installation and beginning the start-up of its Reftech PU foaming system for the production of commercial refrigeration display cabinets at another customers' plant in Russia.
The new line is composed of 4 foaming fixtures with double foaming plugs each and an automated foaming system to further increase competitiveness of production activities.
Procopio noted that this customer had asked Saip to support the complete development of a brand new project in the commercial refrigeration, from the design of the cabinet to its production. He added that despite the company's specialisation being in foaming lines, the customer "believed so much in our commitment and capabilities that he delegated us the entire activity."
