Tecno Paper boasts many years of experience in the world of paper mills and in addition to the production of rewinder and winder, it specializes in the reconstruction and modernization of sections of paper mill machines. Thanks to the experience gained in the field, we can respond to specific customer needs, intervening in certain sections of the machine, in order to improve its characteristics from different points of view such as efficiency, productivity and last but no least the safety aspects of the modification. In this case, an important group operating in the world of tissue products, asked us to evaluate among the various possible options, the best solution for replacing the existing slitting system in one of the rewinders present in the Lucca plant.
The continuous and different requests from the market, in terms of product formats, have highlighted the customer’s need to install a new slitting system with automatic positioning, instead of the existing manual one, which can guarantee the right flexibility to meet production needs. It was therefore necessary to carry out a feasibility study made by our technical office. So we went on site to get all the dimensional measurements necessary for the replacement of the cutting unit, maintaining in this specific case, the same geometry relating to the paper passage and to the other accessory elements such as tangency rollers; on the other hand it was necessary to revise some parts in the trimming section, because they are closely related to the cutting geometry.
