Comment Print
Heidheim, Germany, 09 October 2007 -- The Swedish company Billerud has awarded Voith Paper the contract to rebuild PM 7 in the plant at Skärblacka, Sweden.

Machine glazed (MG) paper will be produced on the 5.40 m wide PM 7 in a basis weight range of 30-90 g/m2. The rebuild will significantly increase the paper quality.

The best basis weight profiles and jet quality are provided by the MasterJet F/B with dilution water control, lamella technology, and EdgeModule. The fourdrinier will also be extensively modernized and a carbon fiber reinforced breast roll will be installed. Formation will be improved by the installation of the DuoShake and DuoFormer D. The space-saving, low-maintenance VoithDrive will be installed as the drive for the hybrid former.

With the installation of further Voith components in the area of the MG cylinder, downtimes in the event of a web break will be reduced and tail threading will be improved. For this purpose a CompactPulper, a high-pressure water jet tail cutter, and a Fibron transfer band will be installed.

Another highlight of the rebuild is the two-roll EcoSoft calender with Nipcorect M roll. The 38-zone roll and the high flexibility of the shell allow very precise profile control. Roll surface temperatures of up to 210°C and line loads up to 300 N/mm provide optimum gloss and smoothness. All Voith components are designed for a potential increase in speed in the future.

Start-up of the rebuilt PM 7 is scheduled for April 2008.
