Oct. 23, 2023 - Voith announced that it has been commissioned by a global packaging and paper manufacturer to rebuild a production line into a state-of-the-art production facility for recycled packaging papers.
Voith will deliver a customized solution that includes a BlueLine stock preparation system, the rebuild of the existing machine into an XcelLine paper machine, as well as comprehensive service agreements and a fabrics package. The project also involves the technologically complex rebuild of the existing winder for processing packaging papers.
The customized package covers the entire process from stock preparation to winder. Thus, the BlueLine stock preparation line will enable consistent and high stock quality with optimized fiber yield and low energy consumption. The heart of the system is an IntensaPulper with TwinPulp detrashing system for efficient and fast pulping.
Another highlight is Voith's InfiltraDiscfilter with patented, bagless FloWing technology for optimum dewatering. In addition, an extensive reject sludge-water system from Voith's subsidiary Meri will be installed.
The paper machine will be equipped with a MasterJet Pro headbox, a DuoFormer CB shoe-blade former, a DuoCentri NipcoFlex press, a SpeedSizer AT for uniform film application, and a MasterReel for high-performance reeling.
The technologically complex conversion of the existing winder to a VariFlex Performance will significantly increase the efficiency and productivity of the entire line.
In addition to a comprehensive service and fabrics package, Voith will supply and install the OnControl automation technology (DCS & MCS) for control and visualization of the production processes.
Furthermore, the OnQuality Quality Control System (QCS) including ModuleJet, ModuleSteam and ModulePro actuators and scanners for basis weight and moisture as well as the OnView information system will be installed. These will stabilize and optimize product quality and the production process.
Commissioning of the rebuilt production line is scheduled for 2025.
