Sollex at Underhållsmässan 2024, Gothenburg, Sweden

Sollex was at Underhållsmässan in Gothenburg and met customers and partners. It was intense days with everything from stand visits and new lessons about tomorrow's sustainable maintenance.

It felt like the fair was well filled with visitors, exhibitors and maintenance conferences. The theme of the 2024 Maintenance Fair was sustainability and smart solutions for a sustainable Industry. Many exhibitors were long-term Sollex customers who address the maintenance industry.

The fair arranged a work place safety conference. Sollex presented Martor's safety knives as a wide range of safety knives for all applications. Especially the new one that is developed for cutting bags.

At Underhållsmässan 2024, Sollex showcased new safety knives from Martor and promoted larger machine knives for recycling.



Sollex at Elmia Subcontractor, 14 November 2023, Jönköping Sweden

Sollex at Elmia Subcontractor 2023 in Jönköping on the fourteenth November- BlogElmia Subcontractor is Northern Europe's leading trade fair for suppliers to the process industry. It is a standing visit every year in the Sollex calendar for inspiration and technological advances. A strong commitment to reduce CO2 emissions together with UN’s 17 goals were like a mantra at the Subcontractor trade floor.

Again from a Sollex perspective there were many new materials that needs to be cut. At the InnoDex inspiration arena you could find leather like material made from sea shell, hemp fiber products, packaging in hay, and new foam and board. Several seminars about sustainability were held with some more or less practical tips and tricks on how get your sustainability audited.



Sollex at Elmia Subcontractor, 9-11 November 2021, Jönköping Sweden

Sollex has visited Elmia Subcontractors 2021

The Elmia Subcontractor fair is a yearly fair with loads of new cool stuff for manufacturing companies. Coming trends, development and new technologies. 2021 the theme was clear: smart industry and sustainability.

Sollex news about stainless steel 

Product technology news for Sollex included a new supplier who is able to improve our acid-proof stainless steel knives. In addition our really large stainless steel knives will get improved delivery times.

News about blade coatings 

It is always interesting to discuss coatings on blades. At Elmia subcontractor 2021 we found some new coatings that we will try and carefully test and evaluate. The tricky thing with coating blades is how to clean the blades and to know exactly which blades and coatings that works for different slitting processes. News is interesting but very seldom useful in gemba. We are proud to offer our coated blades with T, K, Z, and X coatings, optimized for slitting different materials. These qualities are proven and guaranteed to work for plastic film manufacturing industries.

However Sollex is capable of coating blades with: TiN, AlCrNAlCrN-based Crosscut Plus, TiAlN, Hardcut Plus, PVD coatings conatining TiSiN, Tetrabond Plus, CVD coatings such as Bernex 29HSA Plus alpha, aluminium oxid, PVD coatings such as DLC, Triobond, PACVD coatings, CrN and ADLC.

But before asking for these type of coatings we ask you to test our T, K, Z, and X coatings. These are well proven and we know they work over time.

New cutting edge materials 

At Elmia Subcontractor 2021 we found tires made of rubber extracted from Dandelions. New biobased sandwich boards that will replace todays sandwich materials. In addition three new materials Dessertom Appleskin, and Bananatex

new environmentally friendly Eco-friendly biomaterials at Elmia Subcontractor 2021 fair

Desserto – vegan leather made from cactus leafs Desserto is a sustainable plant based vegan leather made from cellulose of cactus leafs. A cruelty free alternative, without any toxic chemicals phthalate or PVC. Desserto is biodegradable and has the technical specifications for fashion, furniture and automotive industries. Strong molecular bonding gives high resistance to abrasion, rubbing, tearing, and great durability. It has competitive features handling humidity and liquids, and is fully breathable.

brand new bio material Scalite Fish Scales Board, BananaTex, Sonowood, AppleSkin, Desserto leather, natural fiber-reinforced bioplastics

Appleskin – leather alternative made on apples Appleskin is a leather alternative with a low carbon footprint made on apples. Apple skin consists mostly from organic residues such as stems, seeds, apple peels and fibres. The residues are first dried, transferred to a fine cellulose powder, mixed with a bioplastic and applied in layers to a carrier such as cotton. At temperature of around 130 degrees Celsius, the material fuse together. A varity of textures and thicknesses are achieved by final embossing or laser processing.

Bananatex – water resistant technical fabric made from Banana plants Bananatex is the world's first technical fabric made purely from Banana plants which are organically cultivated in the philippine higjavascript:void(null);hlands. At once super strong and durable, yet light and flexible, the natural beeswax coating gives it a smooth, water-resistant, viable alternative to the synthetic fabrics that currently dominate the bag industry. Bananatex is an open source project encouraged to be used.

We are looking forward to our first request for blades to cut Desserto, Appleskin, and Banantex.
