What we offer:
Your journey to a successful rebuild
We advise our customers with our decades of experience in the paper industry and expertise in rebuilding all kinds of paper machines.
For a rebuild, we focus on our customers’ ROI.
We use the latest technologies, such as 3D scans, to come up with the ideal offer.
Our expert teams support the execution phase with professional project management in order to achieve the agreed project targets.
Once the rebuild is complete and up and running, we stay in contact with our customers and focus on the achievement of further targets.
Successful conversion and start-up of Papresa's PM 5
In March 2021, Papresa, the leading southern European manufacturer of newsprint, commissioned Voith with the resource-efficient grade conversion of PM 5 from newsprint to testliner and corrugating medium at its Rentería mill in Spain. In March 2022, one year after the order was placed, the PM 5 successfully went into operation and will henceforth enable significantly more efficient and sustainable production of packaging papers.
Well positioned for Varel rebuild
The Varel paper mill is increasing the web width on the pope roller, making use of Voith’s extensive expertise. The Voith team will increase the widths of the first dryer group, the existing headboxes, the wire and press sections and the Fourdrinier wire. Innovative technologies allow total output to be increased by 15 per cent and energy costs to be reduced.
Two major rebuilds for Roermond
Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier, Netherlands has already relied on Voith's expertise several times. In 2016, Voith replaced the press section, dryer section and size application unit on the PM 1. Following this successful rebuild, Smurfit Kappa again entrusted Voith in 2018 with the rebuild of the entire forming section into an innovative DuoFormer CBh concept and the installation a new MasterJet Pro headbox for PM 1.
