Toscotec supplied a dryer section rebuild at Smurfit Kappa


Customer: Smurfit Kappa Italia at Ponte all’Ania, Lucca

Production: tissue (recycled paper jumbo rolls)

Supplier: Toscotec

Start-up: May 2017

Characteristics: Toscotec supplied a dryer section rebuild. The scope of the delivery was an advanced mechanical transmission section in “silent drive” with a new frame on the drive side for the whole machine, the installation of uni-run vacuum rolls in the first drying battery and an automatic air paper threading system in the first two drying sections and on the size press. The modification has completely changed the dryer section layout with the relocation of fabric rolls, improving machine runnability and reducing noise and vibration.
