Valmet to supply new winding technology for Papier- u. Kartonfabrik Varel in Germany

Valmet Oyj's press release on September 24, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. EET

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.

The order is included in Valmet's third quarter of 2018 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The total value of an order of this type is typically around EUR 5-10 million.

"We needed a reliable and high-capacity winder for our upcoming production capacity increases. Valmet's two-drum winder with Dual Unwinding technology were answers to these needs. Especially, the Dual Unwinding technology was a must to get to the required capacity level," says Thomas Müller, General Production Manager of Papier- u. Kartonfabrik Varel. "Papier u. Kartonfabrik Varel is a medium-sized family owned business. We produce cardboards and corrugated papers for our customers in the packaging industry on the basis of waste paper using state-of-the-art, highly available and reliable technologies. We were convinced of the large number of Valmet's references of both two-drum winders and Dual Unwinding," he continues.

Technical details about the delivery

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.
