We are your expert for all paper grades
Paper accompanies us daily, whether it’s during our morning reading, when paying at the supermarket check-out or while packing gifts. Without paper, the world as we know it today would be utterly unthinkable.
Voith knows the demands that the various paper grades make of a paper machine and supplies both individual components as well as the entire machine for their production. Thanks to our know-how, we are in a position to react quickly and flexibly to changes in the paper industry, for example, if a new security feature on bank notes is introduced or if packaging materials are to be made more stable. For many years together with our customers, we have been successfully developing solutions that meet the increasing demands for paper products and are at the same time both ecological and economically efficient.
What we understand by Papermaking. Next Level
As a full-line supplier, Voith generates crucial added value for its customers. We design systems from a single source and cover all areas of paper manufacturing. It all interacts perfectly so that we can make paper production more profitable.
We design systems from a single source for the entire paper machine life cycle. At Voith we make sure that it all interacts perfectly - we reduce interfaces, take care of project management and in this way reduce inefficiencies and costs. We cover all areas of paper manufacturing - from BlueLine stock preparation through XcelLine paper machines to smart, proactive servicing and the integration of Papermaking 4.0.
Through fast machine startup and smooth process handling, we improve our customers' profitability. And by looking after the machine over its entire life cycle, we ensure its greatest possible availability at all times.
Voith is already offering real product solutions that facilitate intelligent, interconnected paper manufacturing. With our Papermaking 4.0 concept, we are linking up equipment and virtual systems - which is the key to a paper manufacturer's future success.
For our customers, we are not just constantly looking to the future but are already offering specific product solutions that enable smart papermaking. For example, our Papermaking 4.0 concept connects equipment and virtual systems in paper production and therefore gives our customers the key to further success.
We work with our customers to implement cutting-edge solutions step by step. Our modular system enables a smooth, customized and no-risk transition to digitization. In the process we produce real-time data systems and robust networks, look after IT security and develop customized 4.0 systems. In a nutshell: we support our customers on their journey towards the smart factory.
By means of four phases - visualization, stabilization, optimization and maintenance - we improve machine availability and flexibility with solutions like OnCare and OnEfficiency. Through ongoing development and improvement of hardware and intelligent software, we enhance process efficiency and ultimately, the productivity of our customers.
We don't just offer our customers service; we offer them tailored service solutions. Servolution is the complete service that intelligently meets the requirements of customers in the paper industry. This is how we substantially increase machine availability, process reliability, paper quality and speed. Fast, local and reliable.
Service + Evolution = Servolution
Voith doesn’t just offer paper machines; we deliver customized service solutions. For us, service is about taking care of the issues that matter to our customers and doing everything we can to enable them to reach their goals. This is Servolution: integrated service intelligently adapted to meet the requirements of our customers. Fast, local and reliable.
With our service packages tailored to our customers’ individual requirements we increase their productivity and ensure that performance and output meet expectations. We show how efficiency can be substantially increased by saving energy, water and raw materials. Thanks to our global service sites and our long-standing expertise, we know our customers’ processes inside out and are capable of intervening immediately if necessary. In line with our smart, networked service tools we work proactively, so we already know when and where maintenance or further optimization measures are necessary. This is what we mean by service at the next level.
As an innovation leader, Voith has the technologies to make paper production smarter and more sustainable. We work with our customers to develop product and service solutions that are precisely matched to the challenges and needs of the market.
From idea to product
We work with our customers to develop individual product and service solutions. Thanks to the intelligent combination of the machine and the Papermaking 4.0 system, we improve processes and reduce the use of resources. Using our programs we simulate and optimize the implementation of ideas and as a result decrease development costs.
To subsequently test everything in a safe environment and define the ideal machine configuration and optimum use of materials for the customer, we have set up pilot plants worldwide. This is where we can develop and test innovative products and processes in collaboration with our customers.
Our Research and Development activities are conducted in a worldwide network. As a globally operating company, we are able to exploit the potential of different influencing factors and cultures to generate innovations that bring our customers to the next level of papermaking.
