Papermaking 4.0: Virtual Reality Solutions for Tissue

Virtual Reality Solutions by Voith enable to experience your individual tissue machine easily in virtual reality. Also trainings can be carried out in virtual reality. The complete immersion in the virtual world enhances the training effect. The result: More transparency, efficiency and safety over the entire life cycle.

CleanLine Excell: Consistent and uniform cleaning

High fiber retention and uniform dewatering are key factors of performance in the forming and press sections of a tissue machine. CleanLine Excell cleans the surface and structure of forming and press fabrics more effectively than oscillating high-pressure needle jet showers or standard traversing showers. The especially for tissue machines developed CleanLine Excell cleaning head provides greater fabric permeability retention which leads to better uniformity, less water and energy consumption.
