The rebuild project aims to improve the machine's stability and performance, as well as to make it easier to carry out maintenance services on the machine's drive systems. Upon scheduled completion in the second half of 2016, the PDM1 will increase its capacity to produce up to 1,320 metric tons per day at a speed of 165 meters per minute.
The project will be carried out under the PLP (Process Line Package) concept, whereby Voith takes full responsibility for procuring and managing the supply of all the necessary equipment and services to operate the machine.
This includes new controls for the machine's
individual drive systems, a steam box with automatic profile control, a
threading system, the lubrication and steam and condensate systems, electrical
drives, basic and detail engineering and electromechanical assembly, along with
all the necessary training and commissioning services.
