Lucart has started-up a tissue rewinder TT WIND-P at its facility in Laval sur Vologne, France.

Supplied by Toscotec, it features two unwind stands and handles parent rolls with a width of 2.9m, 2.6m diameter, at a maximum speed of 1,400mpm.

It is equipped with a slitting unit, automatic control of all unwinding and rewinding operations and sectional drive system.

This turnkey project includes Toscotec’s proprietary automation and control system, which the supplier said “guarantees a significant increase in efficiency and productivity”.

Lucart’s history goes back to the 1930’s when the Pasquini family set up a papermaking factory in Villa Basilica, Lucca.

Today the group’s total production capacity is over 300,000tpy with 10 paper machines and 58 converting lines.
