Toscotec starts up two tissue machine rebuilds in North and South America on the same day

Toscotec’s headquarters in Lucca, Italy.

On 11 November 2022, Toscotec has started up two tissue machine rebuilds at the production facilities of two major producers in North and South America. On both projects, the scope of the modifications was extensive, covering the wet and the dry section of the two lines. The tight periods of machine stop have been executed according to schedule. 

Andrea Paganucci, Toscotec Project Manager, says, “One of the most challenging aspects on this large rebuild was the integration of Toscotec’s key components with the existing equipment. Creating an effective interface between different systems requires strong multi-stakeholder coordination. We are happy that the machine is now running efficiently as expected.” 

Flavio D’Orlando, Toscotec Site Manager, says, “After the rebuild, the machine started producing sellable paper right away. We are now fine-tuning the new equipment, which is already meeting the mill’s product quality requirements. The on-site operations, including dismantling, erection, commissioning, and start-up, all went very smoothly.”
