The SMARNIP Shoe Press was selected in order to optimise the production of smooth and semi-extensible sack kraft paper aiming production increase and quality improvement.
Also in this case the modularity and the compactness of the SMARNIP Shoe Press resulted to be the key factor in applying the shoe press technology in a Press section rebuild, also improving the geometry of the first dryer group.
On January the 16th the SMARNIP has been started up and the paper machine is now in its optimisation phase. The SMARNIP will achieve, thanks to its flexibility, the right balance among dry content after press, density, porosity and other typical sack kraft peculiarities.
This new project, developed by PMT, represents the confirmation of the market perception of PMT Italia as a reliable supplier amongst the leading paper machinery producers.
