Marlia, Lucca, Italy 09 March 2017 -- Toscotec has been awarded a contract to deliver a dryer section rebuilding of Cartiera Olona S.R.L. paper machine in Varese, Italy. The start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the second quarter of 2017.
Cartiera Olona was founded in the 1960' in the Olona River Valley, Varese, covering an area of approximately 20.000 square meters. Currently the paper mill is equipped with a continuous production line for grey coreboard. The annual production is of 50,000 tons of paper suitable for the manufacturing of spiral and parallel wound cores, edge protectors, textile cones and honey comb.
The flexibility and intense activity of research and development enable Cartiera Olona srl to supply products in different qualities to meet customer requirements. Commitment to new technology has allowed the company , for half a century, to serve Italian, European, Middle Eastern and Nord African customers resulting in long lasting partnerships.
According to its philosophy the Company has decided to choose Toscotec for its dryer section rebuild on the paper machine. The purpose of the rebuilding is to implement machine efficiency, reliability and safety in operations. Toscotec's delivery includes 25 new TT SteelDryers in place of casted iron dryers, that will allow the paper mill to increase its drying capacity, production and the width of the paper produced. The existing mechanical drive will be replaced with a new silent drive system. Tail threading will be ropeless from the press section through the new dryer section up to the pope reel.
This new project consolidates Toscotec capabilities to provide, not only a wide range of new machinery but also complex rebuild projects based on turn-key concept.
