HEIDENHEIM, Germany, March 13, 2014 (Press Release) - Europac Papeles y Cartones de Europa S.A. ordered a SpeedSizer applicator unit for the PM 2 of its Duenas mill. Start-up of the rebuild is scheduled to be in May 2014. Thus, PM 2 will be able to not only produce normal, but also white coated testliner in the future.
Voith was chosen to be the supplier due to their extensive know-how and numerous references. Thanks to an attractive, long-term financing concept, Voith was able to provide an additional benefit for Europac.
Apart from SpeedSizer, the scope of supply comprises the associated workstation and both a starch and a coating color preparation unit. A new CB-Turn ensures non-contact turning of the web, before it is dried by means of a space-saving combination of infrared dryers and downstream air hood. Non-contact high-performance drying is particularly energy-saving, since the air hood is exclusively heated by the waste heat of the infrared dryers. The after-dryer section is to be adapted, with most of the existing parts being reused.
Europac Duenas Papel is a company of the Europac Group (Papeles y Cartones de Europa, SA) that is engaged in the entire supply chain of the paper and packaging industry.
