Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

A.Celli Paper, Italy, reports that its upgrade projects at International Indevco Group’s North African tissue mills have been completed. The rewinder at Unipak Tissue Mill in Lebanon was brought to new performance levels this past October, and the two rewinders at Interstate Paper Industries in Egypt were upgraded in November and have now attained new production levels.

A team from A.Celli Paper’s Customer Service Department, in collaboration with the mill’s specialized personnel, replaced the two cutting units and updated the drive, the PLC system, and mechanical transmission of the two rewinders, completing the intervention in just six days of machine downtime per plant. 

"The detailed attention to procedures shown by the A.Celli team at the paper mill and the company’s prompt availability to meet our needs and demands has made it possible to reduce the impact of machine downtime to a minimum during this intervention, and guaranteed the necessary increment in performance on these two rewinders. This confirms the optimal choice of a partner renowned and respected worldwide with whom, at every step, we consolidate an important relationship begun several years ago. These excellent results are of paramount importance to us because we are planning other initiatives aimed at enhancing the performance of our production systems, and knowing that we are not alone is reassuring," said Interstate’s project manager.
