Voith Paper: Key Technology for Nippon Paper
Heidenheim, Germany, 23 May 2006 -- Nippon Paper has selected Voith Paper IHI to supply key technology for the new paper machine N6 at the Ishinomaki mill in Japan. The machine will produce 350,000 ton/year of LWC paper. It is a milestone for the Japanese paper market as it will produce high speed online coated and calendered LWC. The 9450 mm wire width machine is due to go on stream in November 2007.

Nippon Paper selected several suppliers for the paper machine project. Leading technology and references in pressing and coating were the reason for Nippon Paper to entrust Voith Paper IHI in delivering these key sections of the machine. The well-proven and most advanced Varidwell coater stations, originally developed by IHI, will be installed for on-line coating. The Tandem NipcoFlex press is considered key technology for high-speed graphic paper machines.
