Tissue World Milan: Efficient production with Voith XcelLine tissue machines
Heidenheim/Milan: Tissue World in Milan will be the ideal place to see
Voith’s XcelLine tissue machines, new solutions to increase the efficiency
and quality of the entire tissue production process supply chain. In
addition, Voith will be showcasing Papermaking 4.0 solutions and the new
InfiltraDiscfilter – the latest generation in dewatering without filter bags.
Furthermore Voith presents the new SkySoft ceramic coated creping
blades, the ProTect for safe press fabric measurements and new Yankee
service options. The show is taking place in Milan, Italy from April 10 to 12,
trade visitors will find Voith at stand F 500 in Hall 3 and have the chance to
listen to Voith presentations during the conference.

As a strong partner, Voith helps Tissue producers to set the right course
and offers the ideal solutions for raising profitability and efficiency to the
next level. In October 2016 the new generation of XcelLine tissue
machines was launched. XcelLine paper machines enable Voith customers
to reach the next level of tissue production. All technologies, components,
and services are perfectly coordinated and integrated with each other. This
interplay guarantees excellent performance over the entire lifecycle of the
paper machine. The excellent design, coordination and reliability of all
secondary systems also form part of Voith’s scope of supply. In the last
few months Voith has sold 15 XcelLine tissue machines to customers from
all over the world.
Papermaking 4.0 for higher productivity and quality
The Voith XcelLine tissue machines and working environments are going
digital. Fast and highly available internet connections are the prerequisite
for systematic integration of digital process tools into the supply chain.
Voith is presenting its networked solutions to increase the efficiency,
productivity and quality of the entire paper production process supply
chain. Systems like OnCare and OnEfficiency are solutions that stem from the Papermaking 4.0 concept. As a general expert on the entire paper manufacturing process, Voith ensures that its customers benefit from
practical experience in papermaking process management.
New technologies for higher efficiency and safety
New tissue machines can be equipped with the new InfiltraDiscfilter. The
InfiltraDiscfilter has been built since more than 30 years. Due to the
BaglessPlus technology holes in filter bags are history. Likewise the
InfiltraDiscfilter reliably produces excellent filtrate quality which allows to
maintain water consumption at a minimum. No additional cost for process
chemicals needs to be spend. Very low solids content are a prerequisite to
achieve long lifetimes of felts and fabrics. This is why leading tissue
makers rely on Voith save all technology.
Another breakthrough technology is behind CFRP (Carbon Fiber
Reinforced Plastic) lightweight rolls. Unlike steel, the strength and rigidity
of CFRP rolls can be adapted to the specific requirements without altering
the installation space required. Moreover, the much lower density ensures
a significant weight reduction. CFRP components also offer a range of
other benefits, like low thermal expansion or stable running properties and
higher operating speeds for a given roll geometry.
The new SkySoft ceramic coated creping blades offer state-of-the-art
technology for tissue production and contribute to increase productivity
through more consistent tissue quality over the blade lifetime. The highly
wear resistant material contributes to longer overall blade lifetime and
higher machine uptime. Additionally, SkySoft reduces friction with the
Yankee cylinder surface and infinitely adjustable, customizable bevel
angles are possible to deliver.
Press felt measurements are essential to guarantee efficient paper
production. The operator has to ensure the safety of the personnel. The
ProTect system is designed to take reliable press felt measurements at
various positions in the press section of the paper machine. ProTect
consists of carriage, fixture and any number of traverse beams and can be
operated with all available standard portable measurement devices for all
kinds of press felt measurements.
OnSite Yankee Service
With OTR Precise and MiniGrinder, Voith extends its OnSite Yankee
Service portfolio. With its OTR Precise system, Voith is offering tissue
manufacturers a technology for reliably identifying deformations on the
surface of a Yankee cylinder. The system uses a precise measurement of
tensile force and a 3D measuring process to eliminate the influences of
vibration producing a topographical map of the Yankee cylinder surface, at
a precision that sets a new benchmark for the industry.
This data forms the basis for precise planning of maintenance cycles, to
initiate countermeasures and in this way extend the service life of the
cylinder. The MiniGrinder developed by Voith's OnSite Yankee Service
enables easy, accurate removal of irregularities and thus restores the
Yankee cylinder's ideal crown curve. What is special about the MiniGrinder
is its size. It is so compact that it can be used on any tissue machine.
Voith Paper conference presentations
Laslo Monte, Director Sales Tissue EMEA, Voith Paper Rolls GmbH & Co.
KG, will provide further insights into “New Yankee Metallizing Technology”
