Graphic Paper Machines

All information has its value – and its paper

Graphic Paper Machines

The range of use of graphic papers

    For hundreds of years, graphic paper has been a carrier of information. Voith's high-speed machines make it a global leader, especially in the area of newsprint and magazine paper.

    For centuries, the great merit of graphic paper as a carrier of information has been as a storage medium for knowledge. All information is valuable, no doubt, but the paper on which it is printed can sometimes vary greatly.

    From newspaper to high-gloss magazine

    As a rule, mass products such as newsprint are produced with a large portion of recovered paper, often due to their short-lived topicality and for reasons of cost. By contrast, magazine paper has high requirements regarding appearance, both visual and sometimes even tactile. For this reason, the portion of fresh fibers in the paper suspension usually predominates. But more and more frequently, such high-quality paper is being produced with a large portion of recovered paper. Voith’s deinking technology plays a big role here: The raw material for new paper can be provided from recovered paper in the thousands of tons.

              Calender

              Calender

              Depending on the purpose for which a paper is used, its surface must have certain properties – especially smoothness and gloss. These properties are imparted to the paper by calenders. Calenders are machines with up to 15 rolls arranged one above the other, which are run together under pressure and then form closed nips.

              EcoCal Hard

              The EcoCal Hard calender is for online calibration of the paper web and gives the paper a constantly precise thickness due to its hard nip between rolls. The smoothness can also be increased.
