Eurovast starts up the new tissue machine supplied by Toscotec at Cartiera della Basilica


The Italian producer Eurovast successfully started up a new Toscotec tissue machine at Cartiera della Basilica, Bagni di Lucca (LU).

The new machine is a Modulo-Plus crescent former with double press configuration and steel Yankee dryer TT SYD-3.200 MM with a maximum speed of more than 1.500 mpm; this is the ideal solution to meet the demand for high quality products and the need for energy savings and emission reductions.

The desire to care for the environment and to install an eco-sustainable and innovative system were determining factors for Eurovast to choose manufacturing excellence in a rapidly expanding sector.

Engineering services, assembly supervision, commissioning and start-up were all part of Toscotec’s scope. Thanks to the close cooperation between the two teams, the date of start-up was in line with the project’s time schedule and the operating and quality target were quickly achieved.
