Toscotec, Lucca, Italy, will officially roll out its new PRODERGY tissue machine at IT’s Tissue this June. PRODERGY, the company notes, is the first tissue machine to unite top performance in terms of production and end product quality with maximum energy efficiency, as a result of a special configuration of the drying section. "We know full well that competitiveness means business results, and for us every machine is like an athlete's body—a complex system that has to achieve the best possible performance to deliver a real competitive edge in the marketplace," the company says.

Toscotec explains that PRODERGY is unique because of its integrated Toscotec-Milltech drying technology, which achieves maximum possible synergy between yankee conduction and hood convection, both designed to meet the specific needs of paper mills, with a special focus on the cost and availability of local energy resources.

PRODERGY has a table width of 5,600 mm and an operating speed of 2,000 m/min. It is fitted with a steam hood and the biggest steel yankee dryer ever built for tissue paper production. Toscotec, which touts itself as "the inventor of steel yankee dryer technology and a global leader in its application," today produces the units with the largest diameter and table width, significantly improving the production capacity of the entire plant.

PRODERGY extends the AHEAD 2.0 line of tissue machines, the company's "best-of-breed" range, which represents the state-of-the-art for Toscotec technology, "designed to satisfy all production needs in terms of both the type of raw materials used and the quality of the end product."
