Toscotec will rebuild two tissue machines in Western Europe and Africa for a leading tissue manufacturer that remains confidential. The projects are on a turnkey basis and are scheduled for completion in 2021.
For the project in Europe, Toscotec will supply the tissue machine’s broke line and pope reel section, and its newly designed OPTIMA slitter rewinder, which ensures the preservation of tissue quality and high winding efficiency.
The supply of the project in Africa includes a modification into crescent former configuration, which will replace the existing machine’s forming and felt sections.
The provision of engineering design, dismantling operations, erection, commissioning, start-up, and training services, ensures a full-on turnkey supply for the rebuilds.
Toscotec further strengthens its position as leading supplier of tissue rebuilds, building on its substantial expertise in customizing its design to the mill’s requirements, supplying turnkey packages, and delivering on the tight schedule of machine shutdown periods.
Gabriele Romanini, Toscotec Sales Manager, comments: “The rebuild market is key to Toscotec, because it allows us to do what we do best, that is tailoring the machine configuration and our entire design to the specific needs of the customer, optimize their production to achieve the maximum possible capacity and energy efficiency. These new projects are no exception. Today, we are still seeing an untapped potential for rebuilds, with producers looking into increasing the efficiency of their older machines.”
