Customer: Cartonificio Sandreschi
Description: Toscotec will rebuild the forming and press sections of PM1 at Cartonificio Sandreschi’s paper mill in Villa Basilica, Italy. Cartonificio Sandreschi had previously installed on PM1 several custom-made TT SteelDryers of 2,000 mm diameter to replace its existing cast iron cans.
Details: The project consists of a modification of the wet end with the inclusion of mould cylinder at the end of the Fourdrinier section, and the rebuild of the press section with the replacement of the existing frame of the first two presses with a new stainless steel frame, the felt runs re-design and the addition of a new suction press roll to increase the post-press dryness rate. The scope also includes the renovation of the auxiliary systems, as well as dismantling and erection operations, commissioning, and start-up assistance. The rebuild is aimed to increase machine efficiency by achieving an important upgrade of PM1 with the replacement of obsolete parts with a robust stainless steel frame.
Start up: With this new order, the Italian cardboard manufacturer taps Toscotec for a complete rebuild, scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
