Toscotec started up a packaging paper machine at Cartiera Pirinoli after the complete rebuild of the press section at their Roccavione facility in Italy.
Toscotec installed a first nip with double felted press roll and a second nip with a Voith NipcoFlex shoe press designed for a maximum load of 1,600 kN/m. The project also included a fully automatic tail feeding system, felt runs, showers, rolls, doctors, as well as guide and stretcher systems.
The rebuild increases PM1's post-press dryness, reduces paper breaks and thermal energy consumptions. A high operation flexibility across a large basis weight range and the compliance with new safety regulations are also crucial aspects of the project.
Founded in 1872, Cartiera Pirinoli specializes in the production of multilayer coated carton board for foldable boxes and grey carton for packaging, cores, interlayers, and tubes. The Company operates one site in Roccavione, with a production capacity of over 100,000 tons per year, which is distributed both in the national and the European market.
Toscotec designs and manufactures machines, systems and components for the production of tissue and paper & board.
