April 13, 2022 (press release) –

Toscotec will rebuild the forming and press sections of PM1 at Cartonificio Sandreschi’s paper mill in Villa Basilica, Italy. Cartonificio Sandreschi had previously installed on PM1 several custom-made TT SteelDryers of 2,000 mm diameter to replace its existing cast iron cans. With this new order, the Italian cardboard manufacturer taps Toscotec for a complete rebuild, scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.

The project consists of a modification of the wet end with the inclusion of mould cylinder at the end of the Fourdrinier section, and the rebuild of the press section with the replacement of the existing frame of the first two presses with a new stainless steel frame, the felt runs re-design and the addition of a new suction press roll to increase the post-press dryness rate. The scope also includes the renovation of the auxiliary systems, as well as dismantling and erection operations, commissioning, and start-up assistance. The rebuild is aimed to increase machine efficiency by achieving an important upgrade of PM1 with the replacement of obsolete parts with a robust stainless steel frame. 

Benedetto Sandreschi, Owner of Cartonificio Sandreschi, says: “We trust in Toscotec’s expertise to successfully deliver this project. Even in difficult times, we carry on investing in technology to strengthen our position and continue offering high quality cardboard to our customer base.” 

Enrico Fazio, Sales Director of Toscotec’s Paper & Board division, says: “It is a pleasure to collaborate with a cardboard manufacturer well rooted in the territory of Tuscany such as Cartonificio Sandreschi. In the past, Toscotec had installed its steel cylinders on this paper machine. We are now eager to start this partnership with them on a complete rebuild for the first time.”
