Voith Paper to Rebuild Drum Reel at SCA Munksund in Sweden
Comment Print

Heideinheim, Germany, 29 July 2010 -- Voith Paper will optimize and automate the entire PM1 finishing process, including rebuilding the drum reel, at SCA's mill in Munksund, Sweden. The 7.1 m wide PM 1 produces kraftliner and white top kraftliner in a basis weight range of 125 to 440 g/m2.

Voith Paper will rebuild the old drum reel to achieve larger roll diameters and will deliver new reel spools. Parent roll handling and parent roll/reel spool transport systems will be renewed as well.

The biggest single unit will be a winder with flying splice for parent roll changing and a new type of start-and-end gluing. The winder at the Munksund mill will have a maximum operating speed of 2700 m/min. A pulper and an automatic core cutter also are included in the scope of supply. A transport system will be installed to transport the finished rolls to the existing wrapping equipment.

The upgrade of the PM 1 in Munksund will be completed in several stages, beginning in fall 2010. The winder will come on stream in spring 2011, and in fall 2011, the existing drum reel will be rebuilt.
