Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The PM 7 process line commissioned three months ago  at the Miltenberg, Germany, headquarters of Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG, has now achieved a production speed of 2,100 m/min, making it one of the most efficient tissue machines currently operating worldwide. The Voith (Germany) NipcoFlex T shoe press and EvoDry Y yankee cylinder enable high speeds at lower energy consumption. An increased dry content, which reduces the thermal energy requirement by up to 20%, is achieved downstream of the press section. The PM 7 produces super soft toilet tissue and kitchen paper. 

"The success of our project is due to exemplary collaboration based on a spirit of partnership," explains Fripa’s Managing Director Andreas Noack, who adds that "the PM 7’s innovative technology allows us to safeguard and further enhance our high quality standards."

The roots of Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG, a well-known producer of high-quality tissue papers for the international market, go as far back as 1911. At its production site in Miltenberg, Fripa operates a total of three paper machines and several converting plants.
