The Voith PM 7 process line commissioned mid-November 2014 at the Miltenberg headquarters of Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG has achieved the production speed of 2,100 m/min, making it one of the most efficient tissue machines currently operating worldwide.
The NipcoFlex T shoe press and EvoDry Y yankee cylinder enable high speeds at lower energy consumption. An increased dry content, which reduces the thermal energy requirement by up to 20%, is achieved downstream of the press section. The PM 7 produces super soft toilet tissue and kitchen paper in superlative qualities.
“The success of our project is due to exemplary collaboration based on a spirit of partnership,” explains Fripa’s Managing Director Andreas Noack and adds: “The PM 7’s innovative technology allows us to safeguard and further enhance our high quality standards.”
The roots of Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG, a renowned manufacturer of high-quality tissue papers for the international market, go as far back as 1911. At its production site in Miltenberg, Fripa operates a total of three paper machines and several converting plants.
