Voith’s CeraGuide B enjoys success at Thurpapier Model, Weinfelden

July 06, 2011 - 02:58

HEIDENHEIM, Germany, July 6, 2011 (Press Release) -Thurpapier Model AG in Weinfelden, Switzerland, has been using the thermally-coated wire guide roll CeraGuide B by Voith Paper for more than a year in the forming section of PM 2 with very positive results.

The fabric wear has been significantly reduced and thus improves fabric life. At the same time the roll cover wear is less and the profiles are more uniform. The high stability of the guide roll CeraGuide B leads to consistently good profiles and operating performance.

"The positive experience with the guide roll has convinced us to also test a Voith Paper thermally coated roll cover for the breast roll," commented PM 2 production manager Robert Fehr. Therefore, the existing rubber cover of the breast roll was changed to CeraGuide P Plus.

By increasing the production rate of PM 2 which produces fluting and packaging papers, Thurpapier benefits from the cooperation with Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems.
