Research and development of machine equipment prototypes for the creation of the first production in Europe of Kraft Paper Filters (KPF) for the filtration of toxical chemical dry extracts in spray booths


The objectives of the intended research project are to create a new production in Europe for manufacturing K.P.F (Kraft Paper Filters) using a new method process and to develop 2 prototypes: - a modular cutting- stretching equipment (with possible change of cutting tools) - a multi-layer assembly equipment (with possible assembly of different kinds of paper frame ). The 3 SME proposers are specialised in manufacturing spray booths, in manufacturing of ,machine and equipments and in painting applications & supply . The existing KPF products (with already technical limitations in fire-proofing norms and in resistance) are manufactured in the USA and imported in Europe with high transportation costs (x1,8 because of the important ratio volume/weight). The aim of the research project is to develop 2 prototypes of a new machine to generate an efficient and flexible production with added value in fire-proofing, in product resistance (perpendicular cutting) and important European economical (cost), environmental (replacing of water filtrations) and space ((problem of important volumes storage) benefits . The interest of such a research is to: - decrease product costs with a new more flexible and efficient process, - decrease maintenance and storage costs, - give the possibility of just-in-time distribution - improve environmental aspects and suppress water pollution
