Voith Paper Signed to Deliver High-Performance Winder for SCA Aschaffenburg
Comment Print
Heidenheim, Germany, 28 February 2007 -- The SCA group ordered from Voith Paper a winder for corrugating medium and testliner with basis weights of between 70 and 125 g/m² for PM 1 at their Aschaffenburg mill.

After the successful rebuild of the PM 1 by Voith Paper last year, the machine has operated reliably under heavy workloads, with an operating speed of 1200 m/min. This high speed can be increased even further. To make optimum use of the existing potential, however, additional developments are necessary – in particular relating to the reel-up and the winder.

Voith will, therefore, replace the existing reel with a new MasterReel for parent rolls of up to 3600 mm in diameter.

In view of the future potential of the paper machine, a new high-performance winder will be installed, ensuring speeds above 2800 m/min. The winder will provide machine-wide, fully automatic web threading, allowing a fast and reliable web transfer and set change process. It is equipped with new proven components for active vibration prevention and a new drive concept for optimizing finished rolls. Maximum operating web width at the winder is 7600 mm; maximum diameter of the finished rolls is 1800 mm.

The winder will be completely preassembled and tested by Voith Paper in Krefeld, Germany, before delivery, which will drastically reduce the on-site installation and start-up times.

Start-up of the new high-performance winder and of the MasterReel is planned for December 2007.

Voith Paper is a division of Voith and one of the leading partners to the paper industry. Through steady innovations Voith Paper optimizes the paper production process. More than a third of worldwide paper production is produced on Voith Paper machines.

Voith sets standards in the paper, energy, mobility, and service markets. The company was founded on 01 January 1867 and is one of the largest family-owned enterprises in Europe. It has a current workforce of approximately 34,000 in more than 250 locations worldwide, and sales of EUR 3.7 billion.
