August 15, 2022 (press release) –

Novacki's PM2 modernization is in full progress. The new Drying Group and the new Rewinder has already been installed and earlier this month the new Size Press started-up.

The new Rewinder has been running since May.

The installation was needed to meet the increase in production, due to the PM2 upgrade. The model supplied is an Excel 2.5, with a working speed of 2,500 m/min equipped with a regenerative brake. The diameter on the unwinding stand is 2650 mm. The entire project complies with the strictest Safety Standards.

The new Rewinder has produced compact rolls, with excellent formation. In addition, thanks to the regenerative break it features a very low energy consumption.

Size Press

With the objective of increasing the physical tests of the paper, the new Size Press went into operation on August.

The size press features 1.500 mm diameter applicator rolls, which increases the quality of starch application. The Size Press frame is entirely built in Stainless Steel, increasing the equipment's lifespan, and reducing maintenance costs.

The design foresees the future installation of Starch Application Headers, i.e., the equipment is ready to be converted into a film press.
