F&K (Fecken-Kirfel) S12 Rotary Slitter completely refurbished in our workshop:
Greenacres Machine Engineering (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of the Greenacres Group in SA, delivered a horizontal foam cutting machine equipped with a 5,6m rotary carousel to a customer in South Africa. The machine was imported from Europe in used condition and underwent a comprehensive mechanical and electrical systems overhaul before being tested and delivered to our client in the mattress manufacturing industry. All wearing parts were inspected and renewed, including every single screw, bolt and nut being replaced. "The machine is probably in better condition now than when it was delivered new in 1976" commented Des Green, Managing Director at Greenacres Group.
The OEM mechanical build quality is so good, enabling the company to refurbish the machine using locally available components and manufactured sub-assemblies. Total cost compares very well with new equipment sourced from the Far East with the added advantage that the local service and parts backup is guaranteed and problem free.
