Cartiere di Guarcino starts up Toscotec-rebuilt PM in Italy

Italian specialty paper manufacturer Cartiere di Guarcino has started up PM2 at its Guarcino paper mill after a successful rebuild of the forming and press sections supplied by Toscotec. PM2 produces high-quality decor specialty papers.

The rebuild achieved its dual target of paper quality improvement and production increase. Firstly, the project ensured improved fiber distribution in Cross Direction (CD) by guaranteeing the efficient operation of the shaking system. As a result, Toscotec delivered enhanced formation and paper quality. Secondly, the press section rebuild increased post-press dryness, leading to a production capacity increase.

Based on the analysis of PM2's operating conditions, Toscotec delivered a fully customized design solution applying both Toscotec's and Voith's technology in the forming and press sections.
In the forming section, Toscotec installed a customized breast roll and Voith's FloatBearings to enhance paper formation by boosting the performance of an existing shaking unit. It installed Voith's EdgeMasters on the forming wire to deliver optimal paper web edge, as well as successfully operationalized a new wire stretcher and tail cutting unit.

Toscotec designs and manufactures machines, systems and components for the production of tissue and paper & board.
