Aug. 24, 2015 - Valmet said that it will rebuild a tissue machine (TM 1) for Metsä Tissue at Metsä's paper mill in Raubach, Germany.

The value of the order was not disclosed.

The upgrade project will utilize Valmet's Advantage DCT concept including the Advantage ViscoNip pressing technology.

The machine rebuild to be delivered by Valmet includes a new Advantage DCT wet end section with an OptiFlo Tis II headbox and an Advantage ViscoNip press for improved product quality and decreased energy consumption. A new tail threading system and sheet transfer will further advance runnability and performance.
