Heidenheim, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, 2013/10/25 - The NanoPro calender cover from Voith has had a great start at Laakirchen Papier AG, part of the Heinzel Group, helping to underpin the paper mill’s success - Voith.com. FSE: VO2A
With its two SC paper machines, Laakirchen Papier is regarded as a benchmark for high-quality magazine paper.
The Janus MK 2 offline multi-nip calender at Laakirchen Papier is a key part of the system: “The calender is running close to its design speed. We can thus increase the efficiency and availability of the Janus only by improving the running intervals of its covers,” says Roland Stadlhuber, the production engineer responsible for the calender at Laakirchen Papier.
NanoPro, which was developed in close collaboration with leading calender operators is designed for just such applications. With its wear resistance and the special vibration dampening base layer, it clearly allows more projectable and more reliable running times in critical positions. NanoPro at Laakirchen Papier has had its longest run times with the Janus calender. “Each cover change saved, results in higher availability of the calender, but also lower costs for regrinds and transport of the covers,” adds Roland Stadlhuber.
NanoPro has proven its capability with difficult calender positions in numerous calenders and has achieved outstanding running times.
