HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Feb. 14, 2012 (Press Release) -The Turkish producer Modern Karton trusts in the consistent performance of the eVenFilm rubber cover on its PM 4. "The excellent performance of the cover convinced us during the last year. Running our film press with this new rubber roll cover from Voith Paper saves us up to 472,800 € per year," says Ali Ihsan Aras, Technical Director of Modern Karton.

eVenFilm for film and size presses is the latest product of the Voith Paper rubber roll covers for most challenging applications. They were developed to achieve consistent application, reliable performance and ultimate running times. The physical characteristics of the new polymer matrix include greater tear resistance, enhanced wear resistance and reduced hysteresis to provide additional benefits to the application quality and machine runability.

The Turkish company Modern Karton is part of the Eren Group and is one of the largest board and packaging paper manufacturers in Europe. At the Corlu location, 120 km west of Istanbul, 700,000 t packaging paper are produced both for the domestic market and export markets each year. This represents approx. 50 % of the Turkish production capacity. The PM 4, which started operation in April 2008, has a width of 8.6 m and produces testliner grades from 100 % recovered paper at 1,350 m/min, with an annual production capacity of 400,000 t.
