A.Celli Paper has provided St. Croix Tissue Inc. (USA) with a new tissue rewinder and roll handling system by A.Celli Paper for the US company that has recently entered the world of tissue manufacturing.
St. Croix Tissue Inc., located in Baileyville, ME (USA), very close to the Canadian border, is a recently born tissue manufacturing company that can already boast of a long-standing history. Its sister company, Woodland Pulp LLC, has been producing since 1904, and produces a premium quality raw material (bleached hardwood pulp) with wood chips coming from the surrounding forest areas, a portion of which is designated for St. Croix Tissue.
A.Celli Paper provided the Maine facilities with a complete roll handling system, which was started up in March of 2016 and October 2017.
Thanks to this system, the jumbo reels coming from the tissue machine are automatically transferred to the wrapper, making the production process not only more fluid and faster, but also safer. And this also because the new A.Celli Paper handling system is supported by an overhead cranes (it, too, automatic) positioned above the tissue machines, that aids in the most critical phases.
In addition to the roll handling system, the supply also included a new rewinder mod. AC882. Started up in June of 2016, it obtained optimal results, reaching the speed of 1800 mpm with production paper, with no vibration or web break issues, to the customer’s full satisfaction.
