Comment Print
Heidenheim, Germany, 13 October 2008 -- The 400th NipcoFlex shoe press has been sold by Voith Paper to Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Paper, in Chennai, India. It is part of the mill's new PM 3, which will manufacture high-quality woodfree writing and printing papers on a wire width of 6.1 m at a maximum speed of 1200 m/min.

PM 3 is equipped by Voith with a Tandem-NipcoFlex Press Section, which combines the dewatering capacity of two NipcoFlex Shoe Presses with bulk-protecting pressing, completely without the traditional roll nip. The Nipco-P backing rolls for the shoe roll are equipped with the new, grooved stainless-steel cover. 

For Tamil Nadu this is already the fourth shoe press after the rebuilds of PM 1 and PM 2 in 2002.

Voith Paper is a division of the Voith Group and one of the leading partners to the paper industry. More than one third of the world's paper production is manufactured on Voith Paper machines. Formed on 01 January 1867, it has a current workforce of 40,000, sales of EUR 4.2 billion, and more than 270 locations worldwide. It is one of the largest family-owned enterprises in Europe.
