November 10, 2022 (press release) –

In 2022 Toscotec has managed more than 25 tissue machine rebuilds for leading manufacturers that remain confidential. The projects are located at different mills across 6 continents: Africa, North and South America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. 

Rebuilds and process optimization equal increased profitability 
The main targets of Toscotec’s tissue rebuilds are threefold. The first is increasing the productivity of an existing machine both by boosting its drying capacity and by reducing its energy consumptions. The second is improving paper quality, which allows the mill to achieve premium quality or to produce lower basis weight, high quality tissue paper, thereby reducing raw material costs. The third is ensuring equipment safety: by upgrading outdated machinery, Toscotec guarantees maximum operation safety on the production line. 

The highest value for a limited scope 
The scope of supply of Toscotec’s rebuilds ranges from single components such as Steel Yankee Dryers to entire systems such as the approach flow system and the tissue machine’s wet end, the air system, as well as the pope reel and the rewinder, which ensure the optimization of an entire section of the tissue line and associated processes.  
Customization is key. Therefore, site surveys and rebuilding analysis are an integral part of rebuilds because they allow Toscotec to pinpoint the most effective targets for upgrades and process optimizing solutions. They can also serve as guidelines for tissue manufacturers to identify the technological investments that yield the highest returns. 

Nicole Foley, Toscotec Project Manager, says, “Technological rebuilds call for specific project management skills, including the ability to effectively manage numerous projects simultaneously, and to rigorously respect the project timetable as we intervene on operating tissue lines.”

Riccardo Gennai, Toscotec Sales Manager, says, “The key added value that Toscotec offers as leading supplier of tissue rebuilds is the ability to build trust with customers and provide technological and customized solutions for all their needs. We often receive repeated orders encompassing all the production lines of a tissue mill, including equipment upgrades and process optimizations aimed at carbon reduction and energy savings.”
