Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

 
Brigl & Bergmeister GmbH, Niklasdorf, Austria, will install a Voith (Germany) SpeedSizer applicator unit and a contactless dryer for its Niklasdorf PM 3. Startup of the rebuild is planned for summer 2015. The contract with Voith is the first step in a multi-stage development plan, with the goal of improving the quality and speed of the production line.
 
Because a broad range of wet-strength label papers are produced on PM 3, there are a variety of demands on the applicator unit. The large number of different coating colors requires a high degree of flexibility to achieve excellent paper characteristics. SpeedSizer allows targeted adjustment of the technical parameters to the individual specifications.

Along with the SpeedSizer, the delivery also includes a new CB-Turn for non-contact web turning, before it is dried using a space-saving combination of infrared heaters and downstream air hood. The high-performance, contactless dryer qDry Pro is especially energy-saving, because the air hood is heated exclusively from the hot exhaust air of the infrared heater.

Signing of the supply contract with Voith capped off extensive and detailed project work, where the complete process was run on Voith pilot machines, consisting of SpeedSizer applicator unit, offline coating machine, and supercalender.

The Brigl & Bergmeister Group is part of the Roxcel Group, based in Vienna, Austria, and one of the leading manufacturers of label papers and flexible packaging papers.
