HEIDENHEIM , January 19, 2023 (press release) –

  • Based on the joint know-how of Voith and Toscotec, solutions adapted specifically for the tissue sector are newly developed
  • The new stock preparation systems are already implemented in more than 10 new plants with over 70 installed machines
  • Among others, the customer Vajda-Papír benefits from the innovative solutions, which went into operation there successfully

For more than two years now, the Italian company Toscotec has been a subsidiary of Voith and since then has been serving the business with new lines and major rebuilds in the tissue paper sector for the entire Voith Group. As a result, intensive cooperation began, which among other things resulted in an optimized BlueLine stock preparation portfolio for the tissue production. The optimized portfolio is convincing, with more than 10 stock preparation systems for the tissue sector ordered worldwide in the last two years and with some already in operation. Voith has delivered over 70 machines, and many more are currently being processed.

As a leading tissue solutions provider, Toscotec can draw on Voith's full stock preparation expertise. For optimized water and wastewater management, Voith and Toscotec also work together with Meri, another Voith subsidiary. Customers thus benefit from a full-line portfolio from one source.

One system already successfully commissioned is that of Vajda-Papír at its plant in Dunaföldvár, Hungary. Toscotec's AHEAD 2.2L machine has a production capacity of over 80,000 tons/year with a paper width of 5,600 mm and a maximum operating speed of 2,200 m/min. Here, the turn-key delivery includes the complete stock preparation system with new solutions from the harmonized Voith-Toscotec portfolio. These comprise IntensaMaXX, IntensaScreen, TwinFlo Refiner, a deflaker and a jointly developed thick stock cleaner (IDH). A new HC pulper designed by Toscotec and based on Voith's many years of pulping experience is also used. Furthermore, a new TT Hydromix was installed, which was jointly developed by Voith and Toscotec. The latter led to remarkable achievements on MD basis weight profile.

In addition to the stock preparation portfolio for tissue production, the cooperation extends to many other important areas such as paper machine components. Toscotec and Voith also complement each other in service and in the supply of spare and wear parts for tissue production. Last but not least, there are ideal synergies in the areas of engineering, automation and supply chain.
