Fripa reaches production speed of 2,100m/min
Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich has said its PM 7 line achieved a production speed of 2,100m/min, making it one of the most efficient tissue machines currently operating worldwide.
Based at the company’s Miltenberg site, PM7 was commissioned mid-November 2014.
Supplied by Voith, the 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.
PM7 produces super soft toilet tissue and kitchen paper.
Fripa’s managing director Andreas Noack said: “PM7’s innovative technology allows us to safeguard and further enhance our high quality standards.”
The company has manufactured high-quality tissue papers for the international market since 1911. At its production site in Miltenberg it operates three paper machines and several converting plants.
