To get a glimpse of the future of the tissue industry, slip on the artificial reality goggles at the ANDRITZ booth and you will see the PrimeLineTIAC comes alive.
PrimeLineTIAC – the Tissue Innovation and Application Center comprises a complete, state-of-the-art tissue production line, including laboratory facilities for tests and trials to develop new products and processes in the tissue sector. It’s available to tissue producers and suppliers, research and development companies, and universities. Thus, customers and developers can conduct tests and trials under many different conditions, for example to optimize fibers for a specific product, improve product qualities, increase dryness, and reduce energy consumption.
The tissue production line offers utmost flexibility for the production of conventional, textured, and structured (TAD) tissue. It currently features various configurations that are also available on the market as single-machine concepts. This means customers can run extensive trials with what could potentially be their future machine configuration. With a design speed of 2,500 m/min and a sheet width of 600 mm, the machine can be operated with either a suction press roll or a shoe press, a regular CrescentFormer or a vertical CrescentFormer, and with a 16 ft. steel Yankee or two 14 ft. TAD drums.
