Valmet will supply new winding technology and surrounding equipment for Papier- u. Kartonfabrik Varel GmbH & Co. KG in Germany. The existing winder will be replaced with this new winder to meet the increasing line production of paper machine PM4. The start-up is scheduled for the beginning of 2020, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The value of the order will not be disclosed. The total value of an order of this type is typically around Euro 5-10 million.
Valmet's delivery for the new high-capacity winder area will include an OptiWin Drum two-drum winder with transfer rails, a parent roll turning table, a reel rebuild and an OptiSlush Broke pulper. The winder is equipped with a Dual Unwind two-unwind system. This feature makes it possible to change the parent roll in only one minute giving the winder more capacity. The Dual Unwind sequence is fully optimized and independent of a crane.
The winder with a web width of 5,600-mm will be designed for recycled testliner grades with a basis weight range of 100 - 280 g/m2. The production speed will be 2,700 m/min.
