Improve paper quality

Solve runnability issues

Better operational reliability

Unwanted unwinding of parent roll with surface binding

A surface binding device prevents unwanted loosening/unwinding of the parent roll after turn-up and during transportation for further processing. TailGrip glue, developed for this specific application, is sprayed onto the sheet edges right before turn-up. The sheet tail is then attached to the parent roll surface. TailGrip 1 and 2 are ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) based glues.
This process enhances operator safety by reducing roll slabbing and paper clean-up, keeping paper layers tight, and preventing loosening as the roll decelerates. This results in improved machine efficiency and less waste.”

Upgrade reel loading to hydraulic

Experiencing reeling defects with your pneumatic pope reel? Consider upgrading to hydraulic for improved efficiency and reliability. This method offers controlled parameters and adjustable loading curves for optimal roll structure. Updated safety features lead to better roll quality, less waste, fewer defects, and a payback time typically under a year.

Change of parent roll quickly and cleanly 

Valmet Water Jet Turn-up Device comes as a complete package including controls, user support and preventive maintenance program. This device ensures consistent, fast, and clean parent roll changes. An exceptional parent roll start leads to reduced bottom waste, which again leads to increased productivity. It consists of water jet nozzle beam, servo drive cabinet, pick-up device, and high-pressure pump unit. The equipment arrives tested and installs quickly and easily. It is suitable for lightweight coated paper, super calendared magazine paper, newsprint, coated and uncoated wood free paper, containerboard, and carton board.

Reel Safety Upgrades

If you have pre-2006 reels and unwinds and aim to enhance mill safety, we can help. We offer upgrades to meet current European directives (EC-Declaration of Conformity provided, no CE marking). This not only eliminates workplace hazards but can also lower insurance costs. Upgrades typically include safety fences/gates, mats, safety dimension modifications, and the replacement of manual operations with automatic, interlocked ones.
